The school draws children from many different pre-school settings including Chaldon Pre-School. Although the vast majority of the Year 2 children go on to St John's in Caterham, some children move to other local state and private schools. Historically the St John's Admissions Policy has placed St Peter and St Paul children very near the top of their admissions criteria and all children who have wanted to attend St John's for KS2 have been able to do so. Please click the link below for further information. The schools collaborate well to ensure the smooth transition of the children from Year 2 to Year 3, making several visits during the Summer Term before they leave. Wherever possible transfer meetings will take place between schools, especially to discuss children who are vulnerable in any way. Formal assessments are also passed on.
We also have many other links with local schools, drawing on and sharing expertise. However, we especially value our links with the other local schools within the Diocese of Southwark. The Year 2 children benefit from joining groups of schools for competitive sports events and a Summer Term Leavers' Service.
