Admissions policy

School admission policy : 2023/24 (Agreed)

THIS SCHOOL WAS OVER-SUBSCRIBED FOR SEPTEMBER 2022

If the academy receives more applications than there are available places then children with the academy named on an education, health care plan (EHC) or equivalent will be automatically admitted to the academy. If there are still places available, priority for admission will be given to those children who meet the oversubscription criteria set out below:

Looked after children and those who were previously looked after but immediately after being looked after was adopted or became subject to a child arrangements order or special guardianship order. A looked after child is a child who is in the care of a local authority, or being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions (definition used is in Section 22(1) of the Children Act 1989).

Children who are due to transfer and have an older brother or sister already at the school at the time of admission including sixth form. Siblings are ‘brothers or sisters living at the same address including adopted children, step-brothers, step-sisters and children in foster care within a family unit’;

Children who have been offered a place under the music potential, aptitude and ability criteria;

Children of staff at the school: a. where the member of staff has been employed at the school for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made, and/or b. the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage;

Children who are due to transfer living nearest to the academy will be measured on a straight line crow flies basis using ordnance survey data; if following the application of admission rules and distance, two applicants cannot be separated for a final place, the academy will be determined by the local authority who manages our admissions using random allocation to determine the priority for the remaining place.
