In the event of there being more than 30 applications for places in reception for
the 2016/17 academic year or more applications than places for any year group
during the school year, the following oversubscription criteria will be used to
prioritise applications, after the admission of children whose Statement of Special
Educational Needs names the school:
1. Children in care and children who were in care but ceased to be so because
they were adopted (or became subject to a residence order or special
guardianship order) immediately after being in care.
2. Children who live within the designated area of the school, as defined by the
Local Authority, or whose parents/carers can provide evidence that they will
be living in the designated area of the school by the beginning of the autumn
term of the 2016/2017 school year.
3. Children with an unequivocal professional recommendation from a doctor,
school medical officer, educational psychologist or education welfare officer
that non-placement at the school would not be in the best interest of the
child. Such recommendations must be made in writing and must give full
supporting reasons and will be reviewed by the LA.
4. Children with siblings who will still be attending the school at the time of their
5. All other children.
