Admissions policy

School admission policy : 2022/23 (Agreed)

Where the school is named on a pupil’s Statement of Special Educational Needs or Education and Health Care Plan, that child will be admitted by the school. If the number of applications for admission to the nursery or primary school is greater than the PAN, applications will be considered against the criteria and order set out below:

1) Looked After Children and Children who have been previously looked after (pursuant to the Admissions Code)

2) Children who at the time of the admission have a sibling who attends the school. For this purpose, “sibling” means a whole, half or step-brother or -sister or an adopted child resident at the same address. In respect of applications to the primary school, the fact that an applicant has a sibling attending the nursery school will not be a factor giving rise to priority.

3) Children of staff at the school where there is a demonstrable skill shortage – Children of members of staff will have priority in the oversubscription criteria if the staff member is filling a post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage. DEMAT is required to approve the headteachers’ designation of such posts and confirm the assessment that a member of staff appointed meets the requirements of the shortage. Priority will be limited to one place for each form of entry in any year.

4) Distance measurement – A child’s home will be the address at which the child normally resides, and which has been notified to the school and other relevant agencies as being the child’s normal place of residence.
