Oversubscription admission criteria

Primary

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 of staff employed at Danetre & Southbrook Learning Village (DSLV) academy in excess of 2 years
  3. Where there will be an older sibling in attendance at DSLV at the date of admission. Sibling refers to brother or sister, half-brother or sister, adopted brother or sister, step-brother or sister, or the child of the parent or carer’s partner where the children live at the same address
  4. Exceptional social or medical needs. If you believe that your child has exceptional medical or social needs, you will need to provide evidence of this from an appropriate professional. The needs must relate to your child and the evidence must detail how the needs of your child can only be met at DSLV academy. Information of exceptional medical needs should be sent directly to the school.
  5. Other pupils

Tie-breaker

If the admission number is exceeded within any of the above criteria, priority will be given to those who live closest to the academy.

Distances are measured from the property to the address point of the school. It is measured on a straight-line basis, using a geographical information system.

In the case of multiple applications from the same shared dwelling (e.g. flats), random allocation will be used to decide the priority given to each of the pupils within the shared dwelling.

Distance measurements:

Distances are measured from the property to the address point of the school. They are measured on a straight-line basis, using a geographical information system. The point from which your property is measured is known as the ‘address point’. Each address has a unique address point established by the ordnance survey and the royal mail address files. The address point for a property does not change. In the case of multiple applications from the same shared dwelling (e.g. flats), random allocation will be used to decide the priority given to each of the pupils within the shared dwelling.
