Whitehill Community Academy

The Planned Admission Number for admission to Reception class in the school year commencing September 2017 is 90. Children with Special Educational Needs who have a statement or plan which names the academy will be allocated a place.

Where the number of applications for admissions exceeds 90, 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 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, or where the school has a specific skill requirement.
  4. Proximity of the pupil's home address to the school.

Distance will be calculated using the Local Authority's GIS (Geographical Information System). To ensure consistency applies, 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. This is the point which the distance measurement will be taken from.
