Definition of 'children who appear to have been in state care outside of England'

Children who appear to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted.

A child is regarded as having been in state care in a place outside of England if they were accommodated by a public authority, a religious organisation or any other provider of care whose sole purpose if to benefit society.

Definition of 'children of staff'

All Saints Academy will admit a child of a member of staff provided that:

  • the member of staff (defined below) has been employed at the academy for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the academy is made, and/or
  • the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable shortage

For the purposes of satisfying these criteria, a member of staff is defined as a member

of the:

  • full-time teaching staff, or of the part-time teaching staff with a 50% and above timetable
  • full-time support staff (on a 38 week and above contract) or of the part-time associate staff who work 50% and above as determined by their role whose role and activities can be demonstrated to provide a significant measurable impact on student achievement at the academy

A panel from the Governors Admission Committee will determine whether the member of staff meets the requirements for this rule. This definition does not include contract staff or peripatetic staff employed by All Saints Academy Dunstable.

Definition of 'very exceptional' medical grounds

‘Very exceptional’ medical grounds refers to cases where there are exceptional medical reasons which make it essential that a child should attend a particular school and where the preferred school is the only school locally that could meet the child’s needs. A medical report from the child’s doctor or consultant must be submitted with the application form, setting out valid medical reasons why it is essential for the child to be admitted to the school in question and the difficulties that would be caused if the child had to attend another school. The governors reserve the right to seek further information to determine whether it is essential for a child to be admitted to the preferred school on medical grounds. Admission on medical grounds cannot be considered where the medical condition relates to that of a parent/carer, brother or sister or another relative/childminder.
