The school’s admission number is 30.  Where the number of applications is lower than the school’s admission number, all applicants will be admitted.  If there are more applications than places available, then all applications received by the Local Authority’s designated closing date for receipt of applications will be considered, together and at one time, by a committee of the Governing Board’s Admissions Committee.


Oversubscription criteria


If the number of applications for a particular year group exceeds the number of places available, the following criteria will be used:


Priority 1:  Children looked after by a Local Authority (in accordance with section 22 of the Children Act 1989) and children who were previously looked after but ceased to be so because they were adopted or became subject to a child arrangements or special guardianship order. This includes those children who appear to the admission authority to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted.


Priority 2 Children with a brother or sister who will be attending the school at the time of admission.

How to make an in year application

Applications made outside the normal admissions round (for in-year admissions) should be made directly to the school. 
Parents/carers can apply for a place for their child at any time throughout the year using an in year application form. (which is available from both the school office (add school telephone number) and on the website (add website address)),On receipt of an in-year application form the Headteacher will liaise with the school’s Admissions Committee. The school will notify parents of the decision in writing within 15 school days and will notify the local authority of both the application and its outcome to allow the Local Authority to keep up to date with figures on the availability of school places in their area.
