Salterlee Primary School

The number of intended admissions for the academic year commencing September 2018 is 15. Where applications for admission exceed the number of places available, the following criteria will be applied, in the order set out below, when allocating places:

  1. Children who are looked after, ie children who are in the care of the Local Authority or provided with accommodation by that 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 child arrangements or special guardianship order.

  2. Where the child has a brother or sister attending the school and still residing in the designated priority area of the school at the offer date.

  3. Children residing within the designated priority area of the school at the offer date.

  4. Where the child has a brother or sister attending the school at the start of the Autumn Term (eg 1 September).

  5. Other children.

Where there is oversubscription within any of the above criteria, priority will be decided on the proximity of the child's home to school. The distance is measured in a straight line between the pupil's registered address to the closest designated school entrance point. A map detailing the designated priority area is available from the school.

When considering allocation of places the Governing Body will only consider applicants' current permanent address of residence and disregard any intention to move into the designated priority area of the school.

Where a child lives at different addresses as a result of parents enjoying shared responsibility then the parents must declare one of these addresses as the registered address for the purpose of determining an application for admission to the school.

Criterion 2 and 4 include: step brother / sister, adopted brother / sister, an existing pupil living at the same address where one or more of the parents is common to the applicant, at the time of the admission.
