All admissions are subject to the following criteria:-

Admission Criteria

Children are admitted following the local authority order of priority.

1.  Looked after or previously looked after children.

2.  Children with a brother or a sister already at the school who will still be in attendance in September.

                      2.1  have one or both parents in common; or

                      2.2  are related by a parent's marriage; or

                      2.3  are adopted or fostered by a common parent.

3.  Children who live nearest the school.

Within each of the categories, priority is given to those who live nearest the school, calculated on the basis of a straight-line measurement between home and school.

Children with a statement of special educational needs/EHC Plan are required to be admitted to the school that is named in the statement/plan.  This gives such children overall priority for admission to the named school.  This is not an over subscription criterion.

Where parents are not happy with the school allocated they may appeal.  Arrangements exist for appeals to be heard by an independent panel.
