If there are more applications than the number of places available, places will be offered according to the following order of priority:
1. ‘Looked after’ children and children who were adopted (or subject to child arrangements orders or special guardianship orders) immediately following having been ‘looked after’
2. Children who, when the applications are processed, attend the linked infant school
3. Children whom the Director of Education and Skills accepts have an exceptional medical, social or other need that the school is particularly able to meet
4. Children living within the individual school’s defined area, with priority given to those who live closest to the school when measuring distance in a straight line.
5. Children who, at the time of admission, have a sibling (brother or sister) living at the same address who already attends the school, or the linked school in the case of separate infant and junior schools. Siblings would include half, step, adoptive and foster siblings provided they also live at the same address as the applicant.
6. Children of teaching staff of the school where the member of staff has been employed at the school for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made and will be in employment as a teacher at the school when the child starts school

If you don’t get your first-choice school
We can’t guarantee we can offer you a place at your first choice school. If there are places available at other schools you listed we will offer you a place at your next choice school.
If we are unable to offer you any of the schools you applied for we will offer you a place at the nearest school that does have school places.
Your child will go on the waiting lists for the school you applied for and you have the right to appeal
