Silverstone Church of England Primary School: admissions criteria

​Silverstone Church of England Primary School, Green Lane, Silverstone NN12 8ES

Oversubscription criteria: 

Places will be allocated to pupils who have an EHC plan that names the school as appropriate provision. When there are more applications for places than there are places available, priority will be given in the following order:

  1. Children in public care or previously in public care but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence / child arrangements order or special guardianship order.
  2. Pupils who live in the linked area of Silverstone, Abthorpe and Wappenham.
  3. Pupils with a sibling continuing at the school at the time of admission of the child (see definition of sibling below).
  4. Other pupils.


If the admission number is exceeded within criterion 2 priority will be given to those who live furthest from the nearest alternative school. If the admission number is exceeded within any other criterion priority will be given to those who live closest to the school. This will be measured by the NCC’s GIS.
