Oversubscription Criteria

If there are more applications than there are places available, places will be allocated using the Oversubscription Criteria in the following order of priority:

 

  1. Children in Public Care (looked after children).
  2. Pupils who have a sibling already in attendance at the school.
  3. Pupils for whom a place at the school is essential on medical or social grounds as supported in writing by a medical practitioner or a social worker.
  4. Up to 25% of places may be allocated as ‘Church Places’ to children, regardless of distance between home and school, whose parents are regular worshippers at a Christian church and whose application is supported in writing by the minister of the church where they worship.
  5. Distance between the home address and the school as measured in a straight line with those living closer to the school receiving the higher priority.

If there is oversubscription in criteria 2 to 5, priority will be given to those living closest to the school as measured in a straight line.
