Spring Lane Primary School

​Spring Lane

Children with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan which names the school as appropriate provision will first be admitted.

Oversubscription criteria

When there are more applications than places available, priority for admission will be given to children in the order shown below:

  1. Looked after children and previously looked after children
  2. Children with a brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the child
  3. Children who live closer to the preferred school than any other school
  4. Other children

Allocation of places up to published admission number (PAN)

If the PAN 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 child’s home address to the address point of the school using a geographical information system.


Where there are two or more applications that cannot otherwise be separated, a randomiser will be used to decide who is allocated a place.
