Reception Places 2018

For details of our admission criteria, please see the information below. Families are more than welcome to come and tour our school, by contacting the school to book an appointment.

Pineham Barns Primary School Determined Criteria

Places will be allocated to pupils with a Statement of Special Educational Needs or EHC Plan that names the school as appropriate provision. When there are more applications for places than there are places available priority will be given in the following order:

Oversubscription Criteria

i. Pupils in public care or previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, or a child arrangements order or special guardianship order

ii. Pupils living within the area defined below* with an older brother or sister** continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child.

iii. Children of qualified teaching staff where the member of staff has been employed at the school for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made.

iv. Pupils who live closest to the preferred school within the defined area.*

v. Pupils with an older brother or sister **continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child.

vi. Other Pupils

*The defined area is from Junction 15A of the M1 to the A4500/A5076 roundabout in Upton. From the A4500/A5076 roundabout in Upton to Upton Valley Way North. Upton Valley Way North is used as a boundary to define the area until it merges with Nectar Way. Nectar Way is defined as the boundary until it merges with Cob Drive, which leads to Swan Valley Way. Swan Valley Way reconnects the defined area to Junction 15A of the M1 via the A43.

Tiebreaker

If the admission number is exceeded within any criterion, bar criterion iii, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school. In criterion iii places will be allocated by random selection. In criterion iii pupils names will be placed in alphabetical order and numbered. These numbers are then put into random order using an electronic randomiser and this will then denote the order these pupils will be allocated within the criterion.

Where two or more children share a priority for a place eg where two children live equidistant from the school, these places will be allocated using random selection undertaken by an independent body as described above.

However , if children of multiple births are tied for the final place those siblings will be admitted over PAN as admitted by infant class size rules.

Distances are measured from the address point of your home to the address point of the school on a straight line basis, using a geographical information system. Each address has a unique address point established by the most valuable elements from the National Land and Property Gazeteer (NPLG), Ordnance Survey Master Map, Royal Mail Postal Address File and The Valuation Office Agency. The address point for a property does not change.

**Sibling

A Brother or sister (sibling) is defined in these arrangements as children who live as brother or sister in the same house, (within a family unit) including natural brothers or sisters, adopted siblings, stepbrothers or sisters and foster brothers and sisters. The sibling must be in the school at the time of application and continuing at the school at the proposed date of admission.
