Criteria for Admissions

The school follows the Local Authority’s criteria for admissions and this should be the first point of contact if you wish to view the criteria.

Oversubscription Criteria

Places will be allocated to pupils who have a statement of SEN 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:

i. Children in public care or previously in public care
ii. Children with specific medical and social needs, supported by written evidence from an appropriate professional person
iii. Pupils who live in the linked area
iv. Pupils with an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child
v. Other pupils.

If the admission number is exceeded within criterion (iii) 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.

Appeals Procedure

You have the right to appeal against the decision not to offer your child a place at any of the schools you were refused.

You will receive information about the procedure with your notification letter if you are unsuccessful in obtaining a place at Crick Primary School.
