Proposed Admissions Intake September 2023

We are proposing a change from our current admissions policy where in the event of over-subscription priority is given to children who attend our nursery setting.

The changes are the addition of the point 4 below below:

 2.4 NCC places a restriction on entry if the number of children applying for entry exceeds the places available, (bearing in mind the agreed admission number and planned or current organisation of classes). NCC apply the criteria for Community Primary rural schools as set out below in order to determine whether a child is accepted or not. It is NCC policy to allow parents the right to have a place at the school of their choice. However, this is not always possible, due to excess demand on the school places available.
Places will be allocated to pupils who have a statement of SEN or EHC plan that names the school as appropriate provision. When there are more applications for places than there are places available, priority will be given in the following order:
1) Children in public care or previously in public care but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence/child arrangements order or special guardianship order
2) Pupils who live in the linked area
3) Pupils with an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child*
4) Pupils transferring from BCPS Nursery provision
5) Other pupils
Tiebreaker: If the admission number is exceeded within criterion (2) priority will be given to those who live furthest from the nearest alternative school. If the admission number is exceeded within any other criterion priority will be given to those who live closest to the school.

Parents have until Sunday the 19th December to comment on the proposals-
