Criteria for Admission to Gateford Park Primary School

In the event of over-subscription, the following criteria will be applied, in priority order, to determine which applications will be granted once places have first been allocated to pupils who have a statement of special educational needs which names the school:

 

  • Children looked after by a local authority.

 

  • Children who live in the catchment area and who, at the time of admission, will have a brother or sister attending the school or linked junior/primary school.

 

  • Other children who live in the catchment area.

 

  • Children who live outside the catchment area and who, at the time of admission, will have a brother or sister attending the school or the linked junior/primary school.

 

  • Other children who live outside the catchment area.

 

In the event of over-subscription within any criterion, preference will be given to children who live nearest to the school as the crow flies. Distances are measured from the entrance to the child’s home to the principal entrance to the main administrative building of the school.

Special Circumstances

The following groups of children will be given special consideration in their application for a particular school:

 


Children whose particular medical needs, mobility support needs, special educational needs or social circumstances are supported by written evidence from a doctor, social worker or other relevant professional stating that the school is the only school which could cater for the child’s particular needs. The evidence must be presented at the time of application.  The Local Education Officer will consider each case on its merits and determine the allocation of any such place on the basis of the written evidence. Admission under ‘special circumstances’ will take precedence over all but the first of the numbered criteria.

 


Children of nomadic travellers will be allocated a place at their catchment area school.
