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
