All Saints CE (VA) J and I School

The Planned Admission Limit is 30. Where total applicants for admission into the Reception class exceed the number of places available, the following criteria will be applied in the order set out below, to decide which children to admit:

  1. Children who are 'Looked After' defined as children who are in the care of the Local Authority (in accordance with section 22 of the Children Act 1989), or children who were previously looked after but ceased to be so because they became adopted or became subject to a residence or special guardianship order.

  2. Where the child has a sibling attending the school at the proposed date of admission (see note one).

  3. Proximity of the child's permanent address to the school with those living nearer, as measured by the shortest distance, being accorded the higher priority. Distance is defined as the distance from the pupil's home to the school in a straight line as measured by Calderdale Council (see note two).

    Distances will be calculated using the Local Authority's GIS (Geographical Information System). To ensure consistency, all measurements will be carried out by the Local Authority's GIS and no other method of measuring distance will be considered.

    Each property has a coordinate taken from Ordnance Survey ADDRESS-POINT data.

Pupils in receipt of a Statement of Special Educational Needs or Education Health and Care plan, where All Saints' CE (VA) J and I School is named in the statement or plan will be admitted to the school.

Notes

  1. For the sibling criterion to be applicable, one of the following conditions must exist:

    • brother and / or sister to be permanently resident at the same address at the proposed date of admission.

    • step-brother and / or step-sister to be permanently resident at the same address at the proposed date of admission (to include half brothers / sisters).

      Extended family members (for example cousins) do not count as siblings.

  2. The child's permanent place of residence will be deemed to be a residential property at which the person or persons with parental responsibility for the child reside for a minimum of six months prior to and including the closing date for receiving applications into Reception class.

    Where parental responsibility is held by more than one person and those persons reside in separate properties, the child's permanent place of residence will be deemed to be that property at which the child resides for the greater part of the week, including weekends.
