Admissions

If there are more applications for places than there are places available, we will give preference to children living nearest to the school, according to the following rules in this order of priority:

  1. children with a statement of special educational needs naming that school
  2. children in public care who are due to start school
  3. children who are due to start school, living in the area served by the school who have a brother or sister attending the school at the time of their admission
  4. children who are due to start school, living in the area served by the school who have a brother or sister attending the adjoining junior school
  5. children who are due to start school, living in the area served by the school with no brother or sister at that school or the adjoining junior school
  6. children who are due to start school, living outside the area served by the school who have a brother or sister attending the school at the time of their admission
  7. children who are due to start school, living outside the area served by the school who have a brother or sister attending the adjoining junior school
  8. children who are due to start school, living outside the area served by the school who have no brother or sister at that school or the adjoining junior school.

If all children within any of the above rules cannot be offered a place, the highest priority will be given to children living nearest to the school within that rule. To determine who lives nearest, distance will be measured on a straight line “crow fly” basis, using Ordnance Survey data. The address will be measured from the post office address point on the property.
