    School places are allocated on the following criteria;

    Oversubscription Criteria

    The local authority will admit children with a statement of special educational needs which names a school.  This will be in addition to any specific arrangements to specialist provision. The order of priority for all other children is as follows: 

    1. Children in care 
    2. Children who are both living in the catchment area served by the school (see Primary Admissions Booklet for address list) and have a sibling* of compulsory school age still attending the school at the time of their admission. 
    3. Other children living in the catchment area (see Primary Admissions Booklet for address list) at the time of admission. 
    4. Children who do not live in the catchment area served by the school, but who have a sibling* of compulsory school age attending the school (or are attending an infant or junior school on the same site) at the time of their admission. 
    5. For admission to junior schools only – children who are in attendance at an infant school on the same site at the time of application, have been in attendance at the school for at least a term prior to application and remain there until the end of the summer term. 
    6. Other children whose parents have requested a place. 

    *For the purposes of admissions, the Department for Education’s definition of a sibling is as follows: 

    ‘Sibling refers to brother or sister, half brother or sister, adopted brother or sister, step brother or sister, or the child of the parent/carer’s partner, and in every case, the child should be living in the same family unit at the same address. 

    Every effort will be made to ensure that brothers or sisters (as in the definition above) and those from multiple births can attend the same primary school, understanding that the local authority must comply with the Education (infant class sizes) (England) Regulations 1998.
