After looked after children, those with a special medical or social need and siblings St Matthew’s Primary School Admissions Policy gives some priority to children who worship regularly with a family member at St Matthew’s Church or St George’s Church Tolworth. ‘Regular’ is defined as at least once a fortnight for two years on average.
Since the School is heavily oversubscribed it is important that this criteria is applied accurately, fairly and honestly. In order to monitor ‘regular attendance’ at our 10.45am service, a Register is taken at both Crèche and Scramblers and it is this information which is relied upon in assessing whether the criteria has been met. So if you are in church one Sunday but don’t take your children to their group then please ensure you have a word with the group Leader at the end of the session so your attendance can be noted.
Don’t worry about this when we have joint services at 10am. Separate arrangements apply at our 9am service as well.
