Oversubscription criteria

Oversubscription criteria:

  • all 'looked after' children or children that were previously 'looked after'
  • children living in the catchment area with siblings at the school
  • other children living in the catchment area
  • 'very exceptional' medical grounds (see definition below)
  • other children with siblings at the school
  • any other child

Definition of 'very exceptional' medical grounds

‘Very exceptional’ medical grounds refer 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.
