There is no guarantee of a place for children living in the priority admission area. In the event of over-subscription places will be allocated using the following criteria in the order given:


  1. Looked after children and previously looked after children
  2. Children with a sibling attending the school
  3. Other children living in the priority admission area
  4.  Remaining applications


In the event of oversubscription within any of the above criteria, priority will be determined by straight line distance from home to school, those living closest being given the highest priority.
