Admission Policy

 Individual pupils who have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan (EHC) which names the school will be admitted.

In deciding on admissions to all community and voluntary controlled schools in Derbyshire, the following order of priority will be adopted.

See admission rules below:

  1. Looked after children and children who were looked after but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order). This includes children who appear (to the admission authority) to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted.
  2. Children living in the normal area (see note 1) served by the school at the time of application and admission who have brothers or sisters (see note two) attending the school at the time of application and admission.
  3. Children living in the normal area (see note 1) served by the school at the time of application and admission.
  4. Children not living in the normal area (see note 1) served by the school but who have brothers or sisters (see note 2) attending the school at the time of application and admission.
  5. In the case of voluntary controlled church schools, children whose parents request a place on religious grounds (see note 3).
  6. Other children whose parents have requested a place.

Where, in the case of 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6, choices have to be made between children satisfying the same criteria, those children living nearest to the school measured by the straight line distance will be given preference.
