Admissions policy

School admission policy : 2020/21 (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.      lie 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. 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.

Important Note: 'School' is defined as the main school and not a learning support centre or nursery class attached to the school. This means that no priority would be given to a child from outside the catchment area who had either a brother or sister at the attached nursery class or in temporary or part-time attendance at the attached learning support centre. The address given on the application form will be used to decide the catchment school.

Adjoining junior/middle school - this only applies when the two schools share the same site.
