Admissions Policy

There is no guarantee of a place for children living in the priority admission area.

Looked After Children and children attending the partner infant school who request a place at the junior school will be allocated a place providing an application is received by the closing date.

  1. In the event of oversubscription any remaining places will be allocated using the following criteria in the order given*:
  2. children living in the priority admission area with a sibling attending the school or the partner infant school;
  3. other children living in the priority admission area;
  4. children living outside the priority admission area with a sibling attending the school or the partner infant school;
  5. remaining applications.

In the event of oversubscription within any of the above criteria, 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 override the above.

*For applications received after the start of Year 3 Looked After Children will be given priority ahead of all other applicants.

The LA may, in exceptional circumstances, offer places above the published admission number (during and after the normal time of admission): if the journey to the next nearest school with a space is not reasonable in terms of distance, accessibility or cost.
