Admissions policy

School admission policy : 2016/17 (Agreed)

If there are more children who wish to enter school than there are places then the following criteria will apply:

1. Children with an Educational Health and Care Plan naming the school.

2. Looked after children and all 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.)

3. Residence within the catchment area of the school.

4. Siblings of children already at the school. In the oversubscription rules ‘brother’ or ‘sister’means: brothers or sisters living at the same address including adopted children, stepbrothers, step-sisters and children in foster care within a family unit.

5. Parents who can demonstrate a special need of the child. Any application under this category must be supported by for example a letter from a registered medical professional or a social worker or a qualified teacher.

6. Parents who wish their children to receive an education in a school with a Church of England foundation should support this application with a letter from a church minister, either local or outside the locality. The letter should state how frequently the child attends church which should be at least once a month.

7. In the event of the Governors having to make a choice between candidates with cases 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.
