Admissions Policy

There is no guarantee of a place for children living in the priority admission area. In the event of oversubscription (i.e. more than 25 applications) places will be allocated using the following criteria in the order given;

  • Looked after Children;
  • Other children living in the priority admission area with a sibling attending the school;
  • Other children living in the priority admission area;
  • Children living outside the priority admission area with a sibling attending the school;
  • Remaining applications.

In the event of oversubscription within any of the above criteria, all children with a Statement of Special Education Needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan must be admitted, after that priority will be determined by straight line distance from home to school, those living closest being given the highest priority.

Exceptional medical circumstances (supported by medical evidence) may over ride the above.
