Joining Grange Farm
At Grange Farm, we know that when children feel safe, comfortable, happy and engaged they can make the most of their potential.
As well as having a very open culture in terms of listening to children, we also have plenty of opportunities set up for children to feedback their views and ideas and to get involved in making their school an even better environment for learning and enjoyment.

Every year, classes elect representatives to form our School Council. Within the School Council, a chairperson, treasurer and secretary are then elected to ensure that meetings run purposefully throughout the year.
Our School Council is an example of democracy in action at Grange Farm and a way of educating all of the children about this key value. To see this operating in practice, we have to make sure that the School Council’s work has real results and is not just an empty gesture.
Recently, the School Council has played an active role in:
• Forging links with the school council at Sherbourne Fields School (SEND school)
• Driving forward Grange Farm’s approach to working in an environmentally friendly way
• Identifying charity ideas and events for the whole school
• Generating ideas for road safety strategy
• Organising the annual “Grange Farm’s Got Talent” show
• Meeting with members of the Coventry Youth Council
Our school admissions are controlled by the Admissions department at the Local Authority (Coventry City Council).
Children start school in the September that follows their fourth birthday (the start of the academic year in which they will be five. Coventry City Council will contact parents of children on their records and invite them to make their school application on-line by mid-January of the year in which they are due to start school in the September. Places are then offered in April.
If you wish your child to move to Grange Farm at any other point, this process is still managed and controlled by Coventry City Council. Our advice is to contact us to arrange a tour with the Headteacher to help to decide whether this is a school whose values, ethos and educational offer match what you would like for your child. For information about current available spaces, waiting lists and how to apply for a place, you should contact the schools admissions team on 024 7683 1613 or email Primary Admissions
