Admission arrangements for Kirklees community and voluntary controlled schools.
If there are fewer applicants than there are places available, everyone who applies will be offered a place. When there are more applicants than there are places available there has to be a way of deciding which children are offered places. This is done by having admission criteria, also known as oversubscription criteria, which are considered in order. The approved Kirklees admission criteria for community and voluntary controlled schools are:
1. children in public care (looked after children) or a child who was previously looked after;
2. children who live in the school’s Priority Admission Area (PAA) who have a brother or sister attending from the same address at the date of admission (the sibling rule);
3. children who live in the school’s PAA;
4. children who live outside the school’s PAA who have a brother or sister attending from the same address at the date of admission (the sibling rule);
5. children who live outside the school’s PAA.
Community and controlled schools will admit a child with a Statement of Special Educational Needs where the school is named on the statement
Prospective parents/carers requesting admission should contact school in person or by telephone. Following discussion, arrangements can be made to introduce pupil(s) and parents/carers to the school prior to admission.
