The Local Authority will admit children with an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or a statement of special educational needs which names a school. This will be in addition to any specific arrangements to specialist provision. The order of priority for all other children is as follows:
A 'looked after child' or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence, or special guardianship order. A looked after child is a child who is (a) in the care of a local authority, or (b) being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions (see the definition in Section 22(1) of the Children Act 1989);
Children who appear to have been in state care outside of England and ceases to be in state care as a result of being adopted;
Children who are both living in the catchment area served by the school and have siblings of compulsory school age still attending the school at the time of their admission;
Other children living in the catchment area at the time of admission;
Children of members of staff, provided that they have been employed for a minimum of two years and/or are recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skills shortage;
Children who do not live in the catchment area served by the school, but who have siblings of compulsory;
For admission to Junior (KS2) schools only; children who are in attendance at an Infant school on the same site at the time of application, have been in attendance at the school for at least a term prior to application and remain there until the end of the summer term;
Other children whose parents have requested a place who live outside the catchment area of the school. Where children of multiple birth (i.e. twins, triplets etc.) or siblings born in the same school year are tied for the final place, we will admit such siblings even if this means exceeding PAN (i.e. when they are being considered in relation to the same criterion). In cases of equal merit, priority will be given to the child living nearest the school as measured by a straight line.
