Millbrook Junior School

Churchill Way
Kettering
NN15 5DP

Places will be allocated to pupils who have an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan that names the school as appropriate provision.

Oversubscription criteria

Where there are more applications for places than places available, places will be allocated in the following order of priority:

  1. Looked after children and previously looked after children
  2. Children of staff at Millbrook Junior School
  3. Children who live on the Ise Lodge Estate (map available from the school office) who have a sibling attending Millbrook Junior School. The sibling must still be attending Millbrook Junior School when the child is admitted to the Millbrook Junior School
  4. Children who live on the Ise Lodge Estate, who attend Millbrook Infant School
  5. Children who live on the Ise Lodge Estate, who have a sibling attending Millbrook Infant School. The sibling must still be attending the Infant School when the child is admitted to Millbrook Junior School
  6. Children who do not live on the Ise Lodge Estate, who have a sibling attending Millbrook Junior School. The sibling must still be attending Millbrook Junior School when the child is admitted to Millbrook Junior School
  7. Children who do not live on the Ise Lodge Estate, who attend Millbrook Infant School
  8. Children who do not live on the Ise Lodge Estate, who have a sibling attending Millbrook Infant School. The sibling must still be attending the Infant School when the child is admitted to Millbrook Junior School
  9. Children living on the Ise Lodge Estate
  10. Other children

Tie-breaker

If the admission number for the school is exceeded within any criterion, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school. Distances are measured on a straight line basis from the address point of the child’s home to the address point of the School, using a geographical information system. 

In the case where there are multiple applications from the same shared dwelling (e.g. flats) or where there are two homes where the distance from the address point of the home to the address point of the school (using the system referred to above) is identical, random allocation, supervised by a suitable independent person, will be used to decide the priority in which applicants are selected.

Definition of child’s home address or residence

The child’s home address means the permanent residence of the child at the time of application. Parents or carers may be asked to provide proof of a claim of residence at any time during the admission process. The address must be the child’s only or main residence that is either:

  • Owned by the child’s parent(s) or carer(s)
  • Leased to or rented by the child’s parent(s) or carer(s) under a lease or written rental agreement of not less than 6 months’ duration. The property leased must be where the family lives.

Definition of sibling

A brother or sister living at the same address as the applicant (i.e. within a family unit) including:

  • a brother or sister sharing the same parents
  • a half-brother or half-sister where two children share one common parent
  • a step brother or step sister, where two children are related by a parents’ marriage or civil partnership
  • a child who has been adopted or is fostered by parents or carers who have other children.

Separated parents

If a child lives with separated parents, 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 an equal amount of time at 2 addresses, the parents must decide which address they wish to use as the child’s main address for the application.
