Admissions policy

School admission policy : 2022/23 (Agreed)

THIS SCHOOL WAS OVER-SUBSCRIBED FOR SEPTEMBER 2021

If the number of applications exceeds availability, students will be allocated places in the following order of priority:
1. Children with an EHCP or statement of special educational needs naming the School.
2. Children who are in public care
3. Children with a brother or sister attending the school at the time of admission.
Our definition of siblings - brother or sister means: brothers or sisters living at the same address including adopted children, step-brothers, step-sisters and children in foster care within a family unit.
4. Children who are due to transfer and live in the area served by the School.
The area served by the School is defined as the villages that make up the catchment areas of the following feeder schools and therefore The Aylsham Cluster of Schools:
Aldborough Primary
Bure Valley Junior
Buxton Primary
Colby Primary
Erpingham VC Primary
Hevingham and Marsham Primary Partnership
5. Children who attend an Aylsham Cluster feeder school but live outside the catchment.
6. Children who live outside the catchment, based on proximity of the child's home to the school, with those living nearer being accorded the higher priority.

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. In the unlikely event that distance does not separate the final two or more pupils seeking the last remaining place, a random allocation will be used to determine who is offered the final place.
