Places will be allocated to pupils who have an Education, Health and Care (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:
- Looked after children and all previously looked after children
- Children of staff at the school where the member of staff has been employed at the school for two or more years at the time at which the application is made, and/or is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is demonstrable skill shortage as indicated on the school website.
- Pupils who live in the linked area (see criterion 4), who have an older brother or sister continuing at Campion School at the time of admission of the younger child.
- Pupils who live in the linked area associated with the school: Astcote, Banbury Lane, Brington, Brockhall, Bugbrooke, Cold Higham, Dalscote, Eastcote, Flore, Fosters Booth, Gayton, Grimscote, Harpole, Kislingbury, Lower Heyford, Milton Malsor, Nether Heyford, Nobottle, Pattishall, Pineham Barns, Rothersthorpe, Upper Heyford, Whilton, Whilton Locks, Upton Meadows (South of Weedon Road, West of Upton Way).
- Pupils who do not live in the linked area who have an older brother or sister continuing at Campion School at the time of admission of the younger child.
- Pupils attending the designated contributory Primary Schools and continuing in attendance until the final offer of places is made: Brington Primary School, Bugbrooke Community Primary School, Flore CE Primary School, Gayton CE Primary School, Harpole Primary School, Kislingbury CE Primary School, Milton Parochial Primary School, Pattishall CE Primary School, Rothersthorpe CE Primary School, The Bliss Charity School and Upton Meadows Primary School.

If the admission number is exceeded within criterion 4, priority will be given to those who live furthest from the nearest alternative school. If the admission number is exceeded in any other criterion, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school.
If the distance tiebreak is equal in 2 or more cases, random allocation will be applied. Distance is measured on a straight line basis from the child’s address to the address point of the school using WNC’s Geographical Information System.
A sibling is defined as a child’s brother or sister. A sibling must be living at the same permanent address and as part of the same family unit (one or two parents plus children) to qualify under this criterion. For School Admissions purposes, the term sibling includes:
- half-brothers and half-sisters
- step-brothers and step-sisters
- adopted children
- children in foster care
- children living in the same family unit, even if they are not biological brothers and sisters – for example when the parents are not married/in a civil relationship.
Cousins are not regarded as siblings.
The child’s home address is defined as the address at which the child normally resides with their parent/carer at the time of application. If a child lives with parents who are separated, the home address will be treated as the place where the child sleeps for most of the school week (i.e. Sunday night to Thursday night inclusive). If the child spends equal amounts of time at two addresses, the parents must agree which address they wish to be the child’s main address before we can process the application. If equal time spent at both addresses, then the child will be considered under criterion 4 if one of the two addresses is in the linked area.
Documentary evidence of ownership or rental agreement may be required together with proof of actual permanent residence at the property concerned.
