Luddendenfoot Academy

The Planned Admission Limit for admission to Reception class in the school year commencing September 2018 is 26. Where the number of applications for admissions exceeds 26, applications will be considered against the criteria set out below and in the priority order stated:

  1. Children who are looked after (including those who were in care but are now adopted or subject to a residence or guardianship order).

  2. Pupils who have a brother or sister (including step, half, fostered or adopted brothers and sisters) permanently resident in the same household and who will be at the school at the start of the academic year.

  3. Children of members of staff who have been employed at the school for a minimum of two years.

  4. Proximity of the pupil's home address to the school.

Distance will be calculated using the Local Authority GIS (Geographical Information System) which uses a 'straight line' measure of distance from the coordinate of the child's permanent home address to the nearest designated school gate.
