Admissions Criteria for Branfil Primary School

If there are more applications than there are places available at the School, the admissions team will use the following criteria, in priority order, for deciding which applications to accept.

1. Looked After Children and Children who were Looked After, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order).
2. Exceptional medical or exceptional social grounds (supporting medical or other evidence must be provided at the time of application).
3. The attendance in September at the School of a brother or sister.
4. The distance of the home address from the School, as measured by a straight line from the School, those pupils living nearer the School being given higher priority.

If, because of over subscription in any of the categories 1-3 above, it is necessary to distinguish between applicants, the distance of the applicant’s home address from the School, as measured by a straight line from the School, will be used with those pupils living nearer the School being given higher priority.

The number of pupils to be admitted to the Reception age group is 90.
