Places will be allocated on the basis of the Published Admission Number (PAN) for the year group and the admissions criteria set by the LA.  In the event of over-subscription, the following criteria will be used to determine priority for places:

  • Children with a Statement of Special Educational Need which names the school (as agreed with the Student Assessment Service);
  • Children with a verified medical need (supported by medical evidence and agreed by the consultant community paediatrician);
  • Children living in the catchment area with a brother or sister in attendance at the school or a partner junior school at the time of admission;
  • Any other children living in the catchment area;
  • Children living outside the catchment area who are unable to gain access to their catchment area school because of over-subscription;
  • Children living outside the catchment are with a brother or sister at the school or at a partner junior school at the time of admission;
  • Any other children seeking a place at the school.

In cases of equal merit, priority will be given to those children who would have furthest to walk by the shortest available safe walking route to the nearest alternative school.

Should you require further information please do not hesitate to contact the school office where we will be happy to assist you.
