Children with an Education Health and Care Plan are processed outside of the normal admissions arrangements.

When the demand exceeds the number of places available at the School, places are allocated by applying the following criteria in descending order of priority to applicants who have expressed any preference for the School.

1. Looked after children and children who were previously looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a child arrangements order or special guardianship order).

2. Exceptional social or exceptional medical grounds

3. The attendance in September 2017 at the School of a sibling;

4. The distance of the home address from the School, as measured by a straight line from the School, those pupils living nearer the school being given higher priority.

If, because of oversubscription in any of the categories 1) to 3) above, it is necessary to distinguish between applicants, the distance of the applicant’s home address from the School, as measured by a straight line from the school, will be used with those pupils living nearer the School being given higher priority.

If you want to transfer your child to the same year group in a different school (for example your child is in year 3 in one school and you wish to apply for a year 3 place in another school) your application is called an In Year admission. Please click here for more information regarding this.

For children born between 1st September 2010 and 31st August 2011
