School Admissions

 
Our School Admissions are co-ordinated through Gloucestershire County Council.
 
 
Oversubscription Criteria and Admission Policy
 
Where applications for admission exceed the number of places available, the following criteria will be applied, in the order set out below, to decide which children to admit: 
  1. Children in Public Care (Looked After Children).
  2. Children who will have siblings attending the school at the time the applicant child is admitted.
  3. Children with the strongest geographical claim, measured in a straight line from the ordnance survey address point of the child’s home address (including flats) to the ordnance survey address point of the school, using the Local Authority’s computerised measuring system, with those living closer to the school receiving the higher priority.
Where points 1 and 2 are oversubscribed, criterion 3 (strongest geographical claim based on straight line distance) will be used to determine which child is offered a place.
 
In the event of a tie between two or more children when applying criterion 3 (strongest geographical claim based on straight line distance) where there are not enough places available to offer all children a place at the school, a process of random allocation will be followed by the Local Authority. This is a manual process which is overseen by an independent person from the Legal Services & Monitoring Team.
