Statement of Admissions Policy
There is no guarantee of a place for children living in the priority admissions area.
In the event of oversubscription places will be allocated using the following criteria in the order given:
1. Looked After Children (as defined below);
2. Children with a sibling* attending the school;
3. Other children living in the priority admissions area;
4. Remaining applications.
In the event of oversubscription within any of the above criteria, priority will be determined by straight distance from home to school, those living closest being given the highest priority.
Exceptional medical circumstances (supported by medical evidence) may override the above (other than Looked After Children).
A ‘looked after child’ or a child who was previously looked after, but immediately after became subject to an adoption, residence or special guardianship order will be given first priority in oversubscription criteria ahead of all other applicants in accordance with the School Commissions Code 2012. A looked after child is a child who is (a) in the care of a local authority, or (b) being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions (as defined in Section 22 (1) of the Children Act 1989).
*For applications made in the normal admission round a relevant sibling is a child who has a brother, sister, adopted brother or sister or stepbrother or stepsister living in the same family unit in the same family household and address who attends the preferred school or partner school in any year group excluding the final year. Biological siblings who attend the preferred school in any year group excluding the final year will also be treated siblings irrespective of place of residence. Children residing in the same household as part of an extended family, such as cousins, will not be treated as siblings.
