Admissions

"At Sanders Leaders are ambitious, passionate and driven ... Students enjoy their learning and teachers choose tasks and ways of

learning that interest them. Expectations are high " Havering School Improvement Review March 2020


We are delighted that you are considering Sanders School and would recommend you find a few quiet moments to read all about our school on our website. The school currently has a non-selective admissions policy. Admissions follow Government and local authority criteria using proximity to the school and the existence of siblings already on roll as the initial factors in guaranteeing admission. Our intake number is 150 students as of September 2019.

Applications for all school places must be made on the application form provided by the Havering Local Authority, with the opportunity to nominate schools, ranked in order of preference. The Havering Local Authority will then notify parent(s)/carer(s) of the outcome of their application for a place. Applications must be made online and information in relation to this can be found at: https://www.havering.gov.uk/admissions

The Havering School Admissions Team manage the In-Year application process on behalf of Sanders School alongside all other schools in Havering. You must therefore apply following the In-Year process set out via www.havering.gov.uk/admissions/inyear

The Admissions Secretary, Mrs White, would be very happy to take your call on any aspect or issue pertaining to the admissions' process and can direct questions to relevant members of staff. Mrs White can be contacted on 01708 443068 or by email at jwhite@sandersschool.org.uk

“They provide pastoral and practical support for children who are worried about anxiety, depression and other concerns. The team are well aware of the social and

cultural pressures on the children, they recognise the lack of parental understanding and confusing role models for some children. The clear aim is de-escalation,

keeping children focused on day to day life and the positives they experience.” Havering Borough 175 Safeguarding Audit September 2019.
