The Academy Governors will admit children with a statement of educational needs which names the Academy. This will be in addition to any specific arrangements to specialist provision.
- Children in care.
- Children living in the catchment area served by the Academy with a sibling on roll at the time of admission.
- Children living in the catchment area served by the Academy.
- The attendance of a sibling on the academy roll at the time of admission.
- Other children whose parents have requested a place.
In cases of equal merit, priority will be given to the child living nearest the Academy as measured by a straight line. Distance is measured using the council’s Geographic Information System (GIS) from the seed point located at the child’s home address to the seed point for the Academy (or specifically defined point) using a straight line. The seed point is taken from the Ordnance Survey’s (OS) Address-Point® dataset. It is used to locate individual residential and
school addresses using grid references.
For late applications, the local authority will allocate places in the same order of priority. In cases of equal merit, priority will be given to the child living nearest the Academy measured by a straight line as above.
