  2. Children who are residents within the school’s defined catchment area (see map from school).
  3. Children who have a sibling currently attending the school. 
  4. Where there are medical grounds (supported by a doctor’s certificate) why it is essential that the child attends this particular school. Where the member of teaching and non-teaching staff has been employed at the school for two or more years, at the time of which the application for admission to the school is made and/or the member of teaching and non-teaching staff is recruited to fill a vacant post, for which there is a demonstrable skills shortage.

Where there is more than one applicant at the relevant distance, then the tie breaker will be random allocation. The random allocation process will be independently supervised.
