School Admissions
Please be aware that we are required to be CoVid-19 Secure at all times. Sadly, this does mean we have limited capacity in church at this time. If you wish your attendance at church to be taken into account for school admission purposes, we would ask you to adhere to the following procedure:
  1. Email churchwarden Susie Mapledoram at susiemapledoram@googlemail.com to register your intention to come to church.
  2. Susie will contact you to confirm your attendance. 
  3. In the event there is no availability one week, you will be offered the next week on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
  4. Susie will write to you to inform you of the safety measures we have in place to ensure everybody’s safety at this time which we would ask you to respect when you attend.
  5. At the end of the service, and before you leave, please see one of the church wardens to record your attendance for School Register purposes. (Please note this is your responsibility and attendance cannot be backdated).
  6. If, for any reason, you are unable to attend on the date allotted to you, please let Susie know so that your space can be released to someone else.
  7. (Please note, block bookings cannot be accepted, ie it is not possible to book for several weeks together)”
