Allocation of places

When there are more applications than places available, priority will be given to those children who live closest to the school. Distance will be measured on a straight-line basis from the address point of the child’s home to the address point of the school, using Northamptonshire County Council’s geographical information system (GIS).


Random allocation will be used where two or more applications cannot otherwise be separated.
