Byfield Primary School

​Oversubscription admission criteria

Places will first be allocated to children who have an Education, Health Care (EHC) Plan that names the school as offering the appropriate provision.

If there are more applications than places available, we will apply the oversubscription criteria listed below:

  1. Looked After Children and Previously Looked After Children
  2. Children living within the school’s catchment area, i.e. the village of Byfield
  3. Children who have older brother and sisters continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child
  4. Other children.

If the admission number is exceeded within any criterion, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school.

Distances are measured on a straight line basis from the address point of the child’s home to the address point of the school, using a Geographical Information System.
