1.ADMISSION TO THE SEPTEMBER YEAR 7 ENTRY
The Planned Admissions Number for the school is 240 for September 2016.
ii.Applications for Admission
iv.Admission of pupils with EHCPs for Speech and Language or hearing impairments
Before the application of oversubscription criteria, children with an EHCP which names the school will be admitted. As a result of this, the published admissions number will be reduced accordingly.
Medical, health, social and special access reasons will be applied in accordance with the school’s legal obligations, in particular those under the Equality Act 2010. Priority will be given to those children whose mental or physical impairment means they have a demonstrable and significant need to attend a particular school. Equally, this priority will apply to children whose parents’/guardians’, physical or mental health or social needs means that they have a demonstrable and significant need to attend a particular school. Such claims will need to be supported by written evidence from a suitably qualified medical or other practitioner who can demonstrate a special connection between these needs and the particular school.
Where applications for admission exceed 240, the following criteria will be applied, in the order set out below, to decide which children to admit:
A pupil’s home address is considered to be a residential property that is the child’s only or main residence and not an address at which your child might sometimes stay or sleep due to your own domestic or special arrangements. The address must be the pupil’s home address on the day you completed your application form and which is either:
If you live separately from your partner but share responsibility for your child, and the child lives at two different addresses during the week, we will regard the home address as the one at which the child sleeps for the majority of weekdays.
A block of flats has a single address point reference, so applicants living in the same block will be regarded as living the same distance away from the school. In the unlikely event that two or more children live in the same block and in all other ways have equal eligibility for the last available place at the school, the names will be issued a number and drawn randomly to decide which child should be given the place.
Parents may ask to be kept on a waiting list.
vii.Appeals Against the Decision not to Offer a Place at the School
On the agreed published date parents will be notified by the Local Education Authority that they are being offered a place at the allocated school. This letter will give information about their statutory right of appeal.
2.ADMISSION TO THE SIXTH FORM
Places will firstly be offered to children in Local Authority care. i.e. A child under the age of 18 years for whom the Local Authority provides accommodation by agreement with their parents/careers (Section 22 of the children Act 1989) or who is subject of a care order under Part IV of the Act.
Priority will be given to existing pupils transferring from Year 11. Pupils are admitted to the Sixth Form subject to the following:
