Link to a downloadable version is available at the bottom of this page.
Admission over-subscription criteria
In the event of over subscription, the following criteria will be applied, in priority order, to determine which
applications will be granted:
1. Children looked after by a local authority and previously looked after children
2. Children who live in the catchment area at the closing date for applications and who, at the time of admission, will have a brother or sister attending the school or linked junior/primary school
3. Other children who live in the catchment area at the closing date for applications
4. Children who live outside the catchment area and who, at the time of admission, will have a brother or sister attending the school or the linked junior/primary school
5. Children who live outside the catchment area
In the event of over subscription within any criterion, preference will normally be given to children who live nearest to the school as the crow flies. Distances are measured from the entrance to the child’s home to the designated central point between the two sites. The exception to this is that all children who fall into criterion 1 or 2, by the closing date for application, will be guaranteed a place at the school providing the school is listed as the first preference and the application is received by the closing date for the normal year of entry to the school.
Consideration will be given to children in public care and to applicants who can establish particular medical, Special Educational Needs or social grounds relating to their child. Supporting written evidence from a doctor, social worker or other relevant professional must be provided at the time of application. The definition of Special Educational Needs relates to a learning difficulty which calls for special educational provision to be made for the child. Special consideration will be given to children whose mobility support needs require that they access the specialist accommodation provided by a school in a designated ‘through route’ family of schools. Each case will be determined on its merits.
Special circumstances may take priority over any of the numbered criteria above. The allocation of any such places will be determined by the Local Education Office, in consultation with the Head Teacher.
