Visiting Us - November 2021

Schools in Suffolk are currently adhering to enhanced restrictions in response to rising local Covid-19 cases, therefore we are unable to give school tours to prospective parents during the school day to see the classes in action.  If you would like to have a tour after the end of the school day however, we may be able to accommodate this - please contact the School Office to check the available dates.

Please don’t hesitate to contact the school if you have any questions about applying for a school place or to find out more about Framlingham Sir Robert Hitcham CEVAP Primary School and Nursery.

We have also created a virtual photo tour of the school which can be viewed by clicking here if you would prefer.

Please also visit our Blog or Facebook page to get a feel for what the school can offer your child.

Making an Application

Our School Governors manage admissions for all year groups except for Reception in their intake year, so if you would like your child to come to our school at any time other than the normal year of entry (age 5) then please use our Admission Form ADM1 2021/2022 (word.doc) or ADM1 2021/2022 (pdf), and return this directly to the school.

All applications to our school also require a Supplementary Information Form (SIF). Please click on the relevant school year for admission:  2021/22 or 2022/23

Applications for Reception places for the next school intake in September 2022, should be made directly to the Admissions team at Suffolk County Council - this must be done before 15 January 2022.

We recommend that you view our Admissions Policy for the relevant school year:  2021/22 or 2022/23

The school has a Pupil Admission Number (PAN) of 50 in each year group.  Wherever possible we will maintain single year groups in a class, but where numbers dictate we  combine 2 year groups into one class. We currently have some mixed year group classes in Year 4, 5 and 6.

If you have an enquiry regarding admissions, please email us @ School Admissions

We recommend that you visit the Admissions section of the Suffolk County Council website for more information. 

Please also see the Diocese Advice regarding in-year admissions.

Catchment Villages and School Funded Travel

As well as Framlingham, the catchment villages for our school are Cransford, Great Glemham, Hacheston, Parham and Saxtead (Catchment Map).  The school does take children from outside this catchment if spaces allow.  

Please visit Suffolk on Board for full details about SCC funded school travel as it is your NEAREST school (which may NOT be your CATCHMENT school) that you can have funded transport for. We strongly recommend that you check which school is your nearest suitable school on Nearest School Checker because this might not be your catchment area school.
