SUMMARY OF oversubscription criteria

The criteria which are to be used to allocate places when the Academy is oversubscribed are:

1. Children in public care at the time when preferences are expressed and who are still in public care at the time of their admission to school, and those who have been previously looked after, then

2. Children for whom the Governors accept that there are exceptional medical, social or welfare reasons which are directly relevant to the school concerned, then

3. Children living within the school’s geographical priority area with older brothers or sisters attending the school when the younger child will start.

4. Children living within the school’s geographical priority area, then

5. Children living outside the school’s geographical priority area with older brothers or sisters still attending the school when the younger child will start, then

6. Children living outside the school’s geographical priority area.

The distance criterion which will be used as the tie breaker if there is oversubscription within any of the admission criteria is a straight line (radial) measure. If Governors are unable to distinguish between applicants using the published criteria (eg twins or same block of flats) places will be offered via a random draw. The distance measure is a straight line (radial) measure centre of building to centre of building.
