COMMUNITY INFANT AND PRIMARY SCHOOLS -
STANDARD RECEPTION YEAR ADMISSION CRITERIA: 2017/2018
In the event of over-subscription, the following criteria will be applied, in priority order, to determine which applications will be granted:
1 Children looked after by a local authority and previously looked after children
2 Children who live in the catchment area at the closing date for applications and who, at the time of admission, will have a brother or sister attending the school or the linked junior/primary school
3 Other children who live in the catchment area at the closing date for applications
4 Children who live outside the catchment area
In the event of over-subscription within any criterion, preference will be given to children who live nearest to the school as the crow flies. Distances are measured from the entrance to the child’s home to the principle entrance to the main administrative building of the school.
The following groups of children will be given special consideration in their application for a particular school.
Children whose particular medical needs, mobility support needs, special educational needs or social circumstances are supported by written evidence from a doctor, social worker or other relevant professional stating that the school is the only school which could cater for the child’s particular needs. The evidence must be presented at the time of application.
The local education officer will consider each case on its merits and determine the allocation of any such place by comparing the written evidence presented along with the capacity for the school to cater for the identified needs. In order to make an assessment of the case, reference will be made to local head teachers and other relevant professionals. Cases agreed under ‘special circumstances’ will take precedence over all of the numbered criteria.
Children of nomadic Travellers will be allocated a place at their catchment area school.
Admission to Year Groups other than the Intake Year
Applications for admission to other year groups will be considered in relation to the Published Admission Number (PAN) which applied when the year group was first admitted the to school, subject to infant class size restrictions. In some schools, changes in circumstances, such as the building of additional classrooms or as a result of teaching group organisation, will require the school and the County Council to agree admission numbers which will apply to each year group. These numbers may be higher or lower than the PAN in operation at the time of the first admission and could be different from the current PAN. If places are available within the year group, applications will be considered in accordance with the current published admission criteria for admission to the school. If places are available, the child will normally be admitted to the school.
Further guidance on the way in which applications are dealt with including:
· Co-ordinated admissions scheme
· Preferences for more than one school
· Late applications
· The way waiting lists are maintained and used can be found in Nottinghamshire County Council’s ‘Admissions to Schools’ booklet 2016/2017
Ms Stevens is very happy to show prospective parents around the school and to explain how the school operates. Please telephone for an appointment.
All children start school in the September of the school year in which they are 5.
