Admissions Criteria for Hatton Hill Primary

After the admission of pupils with an Education, Health and Care Plan which names the school and where there are more applications than places available, the following admissions criteria will be applied in order to allocate places.

  1. A 'looked after child' or a child who was previously looked after and ceased to be so because they were adopted, (or became subject to an adoption, residence, or special guardianship order). A child who appears to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be so as a result of being adopted. *
  2. Sibling - Children who have a brother or sister living in the same house who already attends the primary school of their choice, provided they will still be in attendance at the school in September. Sibling is defined in these arrangements as step-children, foster children and half-brothers and sisters, adopted brothers and sisters or children of the parent/carer’s partner, living in the same family unit at the same address. (1)
  3. Distance - Children in order of proximity of their home to school, measured as per the tie breaker clause shown below. (1)

Tie Breaker Clause (1) If it is not possible to offer places for all applications within any criteria then priority will be given to those living closest to the school measured by the shortest walking distance from the child’s home. We will measure from the property’s address point, to the nearest school gate (using recognised routes known to the Local Authority at the time of measurement).
