Oversubscription criteria – how we offer school places
Following the formal consultation between 5 December 2017 and 31 January 2018 and subsequent Council agreement our admission arrangements for entry into school from September 2019 have been formally determined.

The main changes for 2019 are:

  • A single document for infant, junior, primary and secondary schools.
  • Removal of catchment areas and the associated catchment area priority for infant, junior and primary schools. Introduced to remove a barrier to admission at the most geographically local schools, due to the local set historic boundaries of a catchment areas.
  • Inclusion of ‘School staff children’ as an oversubscription priority group. This is to assist local schools in recruiting and retaining staff by prioritising admission of staff children to their schools and will help ensure we have no barriers to recruitment especially where there is a demonstrable skills shortage, such as maths and science.
  • Inclusion of ‘Service children’ as an oversubscription priority group. To complement the council’s Cabinet approved housing allocations policy we are prioritising Service children whose parent/carers have or are serving the country.

Admission Procedures for Nursery:

We accept names for the Nursery waiting list three months before the child’s third birthday. You do not need to live within the catchment area to be offered a place in the Nursery, however, you should always register for a school place in your catchment area.
Your acceptance of a place in Nursery does not automatically mean that your child will be offered a place in a Reception Class at our school. Children whose attendance falls below 90% risk losing their place at Nursery.
Places will be allocated in the following order:

  • LAC (Looked After Child) or previously (LAC)
  • Address closest to school
  • Sibling in school
