Admissions policy

School admission policy : 2016/17 (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. live 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.

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.

NOTE: Criteria 7 only applies to schools which have a Specialist Resource Base on site.

Feeder school priority will only apply in the first year of entry to the school.
