Admissions Arrangements for Community Infant, Junior and Primary Schools

Parents must make a separate application for any transfer from nursery to primary school and from infant to junior school.

If a school is oversubscribed, after the admission of pupils with an Education, Health and Care Plan where the school is named in the Plan, priority for admission will be given to those children who meet the oversubscription criteria set out below.

The oversubscription priorities are applied in the context of an equal preference system as required by the Admissions Code. They are:

  • Looked after children and all previously looked after children, including those children who appear (to the council) to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted*

  • Compelling medical or other exceptional reasons** for attending the school.

  • A sibling*** link

  • For junior schools only: children attending a linked infant school****

  • Other Children

Visit the Notes section of this page to learn more about what the asterisks (*,**,***,****) mean.

Within all these priorities, the tie break is home to school distance which will be measured by the shortest route from the child's home to the nearest of the school's gates.

This will be measured by specialist computer software based on Ordnance Survey data. It measures using the road network supplied by Ordnance Survey and some other public rights of way which are paved and lit.

Routes across public parks or open spaces will not be accepted. When using roads for measurement purposes the computer measures along the middle of the road. It measures from the address point in the property to the nearest point on the road network and from there to the nearest of the school's gates to the child's home.

No other measurement systems will be used for school admissions decisions. Where the home addresses of two or more pupils are an equal distance from the school (eg. two children living in the same block of flats) and only one place remains available at the school in question, the place will be allocated randomly by computer to one of these pupils.
