Children with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan which names the school as appropriate provision will be admitted.
In the event that more applications are received than there are places available, the following oversubscription criteria will be applied in the order set out below, to determine which children to admit:
- Looked after children and all previously looked after children
- Children with a sibling at the school or the linked Junior school. This includes children who are siblings by virtue of a shared biological parent or step siblings or foster siblings or adopted siblings, who will be attending either Millbrook Infant School or Millbrook Junior School at the time of the applicant’s admission to Millbrook Infant School.
- Other children with those living nearer the school being accorded the higher priority
Distances are measured in a straight line from the child's address to the address point of the school. In the case of separated families, the distance measurement of the closest address, where the child lives for some part of each week, will be used to determine the distance measurement.
If two or more applications cannot otherwise be separated and there is only one place available, a random allocation process will be used to determine who should be allocated the place.
Multiple birth siblings
Where the last available place is allocated to a child who is one of a multiple birth group, all children within the group will be allocated a school place. Children of multiple births allocated under these circumstances will be regarded as ‘excepted pupils’ for the time they are in an infant class or until class numbers fall back to the infant class size limit.
