Duston Eldean Primary School

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

​Oversubscription criteria

When there are more applications for the school than there are places available, priority will be given in the following order:

  1. Looked after children and previously looked after children
  2. Children with a sibling 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 PAN

If the Published Admission Number (PAN) is exceeded within any criterion, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school.


Where two or more applications cannot otherwise be separated, random allocation will be used to decide who is allocated a place.
