Our admission limit has increased for September 2018 to 52 children for Reception. Following LA policy, we operate a single entry into our school each September. Children are eligible to be admitted into Reception provided they are 4 years old on or before September 1st.
Oversubscription criteria are set by the Local Authority should the number of applications received, exceed the number of places available in the school. These include:
- Children in Public Care
- Medical Reasons – Pupils with very exceptional medical needs directly related to school placement
- Sibling Links – Pupils who have a brother or sister already attending the preferred school and who is expected to be on the roll at that school at the time of admission
- Distance – Pupils who live nearest the preferred school, measured by the shortest walking route based on the parents address. Where the last place to be allocated would mean that a birth sibling group i.e. twins, triplets or other multiple birth sibling groups, would be split, the sibling group will be given priority over other children.
