The Admissions Policy of the City Council in the event of over-subscription for Local Authority Community, Voluntary Controlled and Academy Primary Schools is:
All children with a statement of Special Educational Needs or Education, Health and Care Plan that name the school will be admitted before all other applicants.
If it was not possible to meet all the requests in any of the above categories the City Council has prioritise the requests by reference to the distance. A straight-line measurement has been made from the child's home address to the centre of the preferred school site. The address used must be the child's permanent home address. The shortest measurement has highest priority.
ACE provides independent advice to parents/carers of children in state-funded schools on admissions and appeals. Visit their website: www.ace-ed.org.uk
The table below shows the schools/academy that are oversubscribed and have not been able to admit all the children who requested places.
Applications are classified under the different criteria as outlined in the policy on page 4 e.g. criteria 3 relates to “children who live in the catchment area of a school/academy". The columns show how many children have been allocated under each criterion. The distance shown in Column 7 shows in miles the distance measured from the school/academy to the home address of the last child given a place.
