Standard reception year admission over subscription criteria for community and voluntary controlled schools - September 2024
In the event of over subscription, the following criteria will be applied, in priority order, to decide which applications will be granted once places have first been allocated to pupils who have either an education, health and care plan or a statement of special educational needs which names the school:

  1. Children looked after by a local authority and previously looked after children, including those children who have been adopted from state care outside of England;
  2. Children who live in the catchment area at the closing date for applications and who, at the time of admission, will have a brother or sister attending the school or the linked junior/primary school and children who do not live in the catchment area at the closing date for application and who, at the time of admission, will have a brother or sister attending the school or the linked junior/primary school who was displaced as their Nottinghamshire community catchment area school was oversubscribed at the national offer day for first admission to school.
  3. Other children who live in the catchment area at the closing date for applications;
  4. Children who live outside the catchment area and who, at the time of admission, will have a brother or sister attending the school or the linked junior/primary school;
  5. Children who live outside the catchment area.
