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 school places in the following order of priority by Norfolk Admissions:

1. Children with an EHCP (education, health and care plan) or statement of special educational needs naming the school.

2. Children who are in public care (LAC) or who have been adopted from public care (Post LAC) who are due to transfer.

3. Children with a brother or sister attending the school at the time of admission.

4. Children who are due to transfer and live in the area served by the school.

5. Children of Wensum Trust MAT staff.

6. Children who live outside the catchment, based on proximity of the child’s home to Alderman Peel High 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. If following the application of admission rules and distance two applicants cannot be separated for a final place at a school the authority will use random allocation to determine the priority for the remaining place.
