Admissions policy

School admission policy : 2016/17 (Agreed)

If there are more requests for places than places available, the academy will admit children in

the following order of priority:

1. children with a statement of special educational needs naming the school;

2. children in public care who are due to transfer;

3. children who are due to transfer and live in the area served by the school;

4. children of staff: To qualify for this criterion the member of staff concerned must have been in post at the school for 2 years at the date of application. The only exception to this rule will be where the school can demonstrate a recruitment issue for that post;

5. children who are due to transfer and live outside the area served by the school, who have an

older brother or sister attending the school at the time of admission (but not the sixth form);

6. children who are due to transfer who live outside the area served by the school and attend a

feeder school (see below) at the opening date of the admission round i.e. 9 September 2013;

7. children who are due to transfer and 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. If, following the application of admission rules and distance, two applicants cannot be separated for a final place at a school the academy will use random allocation to determine the priority for the remaining place.

Feeder schools:- Barford Primary, Barnham Broom CE VA Primary, Morley CE VA Primary, Robert Kett Junior, Spooner Row Primary, Tacolneston VC Primary, Wicklewood Primary, Wreningham VC Primary.

Notes:

Note 1: Children in Public Care: children being in the care of a local authority or provided with accommodation by that authority under section 22 of the Children Act 1989. This has now been widened to include children who are adopted and who prior to adoption were designated as Looked After Children.

Note 2: Siblings: Children will be deemed to be siblings if they are half, full or adoptive brother or sister or if they are children of the same household with the same parents. They must be on the roll of the Academy at the time of application and expected to still be on roll at the point of entry. (This does not apply to sixth form admissions).

Note 3: Multiple Births: Where an application is being submitted for a child who has a sibling (or siblings) in the same year group it will be the policy of the Governing Body not to offer place to one child without the sibling (s) of the same age group. In these circumstances Governors may determine to exceed the number of places temporarily on the understanding that this will not create a new admission number and as soon as children leave they will revert to the published number.

Note 5: Split residence: In determining the home residence, where children live part of the week with one parent and part with another, Governors will need to make a judgment about where the majority of the time is spent. In making this judgment they will have specific regard to where children live during the week rather than at weekends, any legal agreement concerning care and residence and which parent is in receipt of the child benefit.
