How primary school places were allocated for September 2022

Local Authority Community Schools, Voluntary Controlled Schools and Academy Schools

The Admissions Policy of the City Council in the event of over-subscription for Local Authority Community, Voluntary Controlled Primary and some Academy Schools for 2022 entry is:

All children with an Education, Health and Care Plan that name the school will be admitted before all other applicants.

  • Criteria 1: To children who, at the time of admission, are in the care of a Local Authority or are provided or are with accommodation by the Authority (looked after children). Also, children who were previously looked after but ceased to be so because they were adopted, or became subject to a residence order, child arrangements order or a special guardianship order. A looked after child is defined in Section 22 of the Children Act 1989.
  • Criteria 2: To children who live in the catchment area served by the school, who have a brother or sister attending the school provided that the brother or sister will continue to attend that school the following year;
  • Criteria 3: To other children who live in the catchment area served by the school;
  • Criteria 4: To children who live outside the catchment area with a brother or sister who currently attends the school provided that the brother or sister will continue to attend that school the following year;
  • Criteria 5: To children of Staff who have been employed at the school for two or more years at the time of application for the school place; or recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage;
  • Criteria 6: To all other children

If it was not possible to meet all the requests in any one of the categories described above, the City Council has prioritised the requests based on the distance to the school.  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.

Allocation of Coventry primary school places for September 2022

On 19 April 2022 we have been able to offer places at requested schools to most applicants, and the majority of primary schools still have some places available. In the table below we have listed the 31 schools that are full. It was not possible to offer places to all who requested them and places at these oversubscribed schools were allocated using the criteria in each school admissions policy.

The table shows the number of places offered to all those who applied on time (by 15 January 2022) and where the school was oversubscribed, we include details of the last place offered. 

In the section on last places offered we list the criteria that the offer was made under eg catchment area. If you click on the name of the school this will take you to their admissions policy for 2022 for further details. We also show the distance from the school to the home address of the last child given a place.

If your child has been allocated a place at a school you did not request (rank 8) this is because Coventry have been unable to accommodate your preferences, as a result a place has been reserved for your child at the nearest school with a place available.

If you have been refused a Coventry school place you have the right to appeal against the decision. Register your appeal.

Places at schools in another authority

If your child has been offered a place at a school in another Authority please see details below regarding accepting/refusing the school place.
