Admissions policy

School admission policy : 2016/17 (Agreed)

If there are more requests for places than places available, the school's governing body will admit children in the following order of priority:

  1. those with a statement of special education needs naming the school;
  2. those in public care who are due to transfer;
  3. those who are due to transfer and live in the area served by the school;
  4. those who are due to transfer who have a brother or sister attending the school at the time of their admission;
  5. those who are due to transfer living outside the area served by the school who have attended a feeder school (see below);
  6. those with a medical need supported by appropriate professional recommendation;
  7. those who are due to transfer living outside the area served by the school;
  8. those not due to transfer.

If all of the 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. Determination of distance will be measured door to door on a straight line "crow fly" basis using Ordnance Survey data.

1. Looked after and previously looked after children: a looked after child is a child who is in the care of a Local Authority or provided with accommodation by that Authority (as defined in Section 22 of the Children Act 1989). Previously looked after children are those who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order).

2. Children with medical needs for whom advice from a medical practitioner or psychologist has been provided in support of admission to the school.

3. Catchment: children living within the School’s defined catchment as defined: Baconsthorpe, Beeston Regis, Bodham, Bodham Street, Edgefield, Edgefield Green, Hempsted, High Kelling, Holt, Kelling, Letheringsett, Plumstead, Salthouse, Sheringham, Upper Sheringham, West Beckham, West Runton & Weybourne.

4. Siblings: pupils whose brother or sister attends the school and are expected to continue to do so in the following school year. This also includes half-brothers/sisters and unrelated children living together as part of one household.

5. Partner/feeder primary schools: pupils not resident within the catchment area but attending a primary school within it. Partner primary schools are:

Holt Community Primary School, Kelling Church of England Primary School, Sheringham Community Primary School.

6. Pupils who attend associate partner schools in the Trust; Antingham and Southrepps Primary.

7. Children of staff members: provided they have been employed for a minimum of two years and/or are recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skills shortage.

If there are more applications than places then places will be offered on the basis of distance: all other pupils based on distance from the school measured using an Ordnance Survey address point system which measures straight line distances in miles from the School to the place of residence.

If the School/Trust is named in a statement of educational needs/ Education, Health & Care plan the Governors will admit the child to the school as required
