The Admissions Policy for 2023/24 determined (formally agreed) by the Governors is now on the website (see below). Following a successful application to the Office of the Schools Adjudicator, the catchment area of the school for 2023/24 is now enlarged to cover the whole of the ecclesiastical parish of Finchampstead and California as detailed on the map in the Admissions Policy.

Finchampstead Primary School has a distinctive Christian ethos which is embodied in our Vision Statement.
Our vision is that our children
- feel cared for unconditionally and valued as unique creation made in the image of God
- become enthusiastic self-motivated learners with a thirst for life-long learning, built on a firm foundation
- have learnt from, and aspired to excellence in, a wide range of academic, sporting, musical, artistic and social activities
- have a strong set of Christian values, including tolerance, respect for the planet, self and others, honesty and sincerity, kindness and friendship, love and forgiveness, justice and personal responsibility so that our pupils can create their place, and have a positive influence, in tomorrow’s world.
As a church school, we welcome applications from Christian families and those of other faiths or none. We ask all parents applying for a place at our school to respect this ethos and its importance to the whole school community.
The governors have made every effort to ensure that these arrangements comply with the School Admissions Code 2021 and all relevant legislation, including that on infant class sizes and equal opportunities.
