Admission criteria explanatory notes
Please note the following refers to all oversubscription criteria unless otherwise specified.
Any reference to previously looked after children means children who were adopted (or subject to residence or special guardianship orders) immediately following having been looked after.
In the case of oversubscription in any one category “straight line” distance will be used to measure the distance between the pupil’s home and the nearest pupil entrance to the school. Distances will be measured using the Local Authority’s computerised measuring system. The pupil living closest will be given priority.
If the pupil’s home is a flat the distance will be measured to the main external entrance of the building. If the same distance is shared by more than one pupil, and only one place is available, the place will be awarded on the basis of a computerised random allocation process supervised by someone independent of the Council).
Siblings are considered to be an older brother or sister, half-brother or half-sister, step-brother or step-sister, adopted brother or sister, living at the same address, who attends the school at the time of application with a reasonable expectation that he or she will still be attending at the time of the proposed admission.
In the exceptional situation where one twin or one or two triplets are refused a place, in order to keep family members together the additional pupil(s) will be admitted even if this results in the admission limit for the year group being exceeded.
If it is not possible to offer the child a place at a preferred school that is higher on the preference list, details of the appeals process will be forwarded to the parent by the School Admissions Team.
