Admissions policy

School admission policy : 2018/19 (Agreed)

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:

Children who are due to start school and:

1.      have a statement of special educational needs naming that school

2.      are in public care or have been adopted

3.      lie in the area served by the school and who have a sibling attending the school at the time of their admission

4.      live in the area served by the school who have a brother or sister attending the feeder junior school

5.      have a disability and live in the area served by the school (appropriate professional evidence will be required to confirm the disability)

6.      live in the area served by the school

7.      have been allocated a permanent place at a Specialist Resource Base attached to the school.  (Places allocated by Norfolk County Council’s Placement Panel)

8.      live outside the area served by the school who have a brother or sister with a statement of special educational needs attending the school at the time of their admission

9.      live outside the area served by the school who have a brother or sister attending the school at the time of their admission

10.    live outside the area served by the school who have a brother or sister attending the feeder junior school

11.    have a disability and live outside the area served by the school (appropriate professional evidence will be required to confirm the disability)

12.    live outside the area served by the 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. If following the application of admission rules and distance two applicants cannot be separated for a final place at a school the authority will use random allocation to determine the priority for the remaining place.

Important Note: 'School' is defined as the main school and not a learning support centre or nursery class attached to the school. This means that no priority would be given to a child from outside the catchment area who had either a brother or sister at the attached nursery class or in temporary or part-time attendance at the attached learning support centre. The address given on the application form will be used to decide the catchment school.

Adjoining junior/middle school - this only applies when the two schools share the same site.

If there are more children who wish to enter school than there are places then the following oversubscription criteria will apply in order of priority

1. Looked after children (children in care) and previously looked after children (previously looked after children are children who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted or became subject to a child arrangements order or special guardianship order, immediately following having been looked after)

2. Siblings of children already at the school living in the catchment area 

3. Residence within the catchment area of the school 

4. Siblings of children already at the school living out of catchment 

5. Children living out of the catchment area who have a faith and / or whose parents are committed Church members and wish them to receive an education in a school with a Church of England foundation. They should support this application by completing the Supplementary Information Form (SIF) Within this criteria the following hierarchy will be applied: I. Anglican, II, Other Christian denomination, III. Other organised religions

6. Resident out of the catchment area of the school 

In the event of the having to use a tie-breaker to distinguish between two or more applications of equal strength, the child living the shortest distance from home to school in a straight line as the crow flies route should have priority
