In the event of oversubscription for places, the following criteria will be applied

Loatlands Primary School

The published total admission number for the school is 420.

For each Reception intake from September the admission number is 60.

Places will be allocated to pupils who have a statement of SEN or an EHC Plan that names the school as the appropriate provision. When there are more applications for places than there are places available, priority will be given in the following order:

 1. Looked After Children and all previously Looked After Children (see paragraph 6.1 for definition of ‘Looked After Children’).

2. Children who live in the linked area of Braybrooke.

3. Children with a sibling link (see paragraph 6.3 for definition of ‘sibling’) continuing at the school at the time of the admission of the younger child.

4. Children who live closer to the preferred school than any other school.

5. Other children.

 

Distance Tiebreaker

If the admission number is exceeded within criterion 3, priority will be given to those who live furthest from the nearest alternative school.

If the admission number is exceeded within any other criterion, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school.

Measurements are carried out in a straight line basis from the child’s home address to the address point of the school.

In the case where multiple applications for the same shared dwelling occurs (eg. Flats), a randomiser will be used to decide the priority in which the pupils within the shared dwelling are selected in the event of a tie. The random allocation process will be subject to independent verification.

 

Loatlands Nursery

The published total admission number for the Nursery is 39 per session.

Places will be allocated to pupils who have been registered with the School Office. Parents are able to register their child from the July following their child’s first birthday. The allocations will be made on a first come, first served basis for the first 74 children although the session preference stated by parents at the time of registration may not always be available. These places will be allocated in the term prior to them joining. The remaining 4 places will be reserved until the end of the summer term in case pupils are referred by outside agencies. When there are more applications for places than there are places available, priority will be given in the following order:

1. Looked After Children and all previously Looked After Children (see paragraph 6.1 for definition of ‘Looked After Children’).

2. Date of registration of the pupil

3. Children who live in Desborough.

4. Other children.

 

Distance Tiebreaker

If the admission number is exceeded within any criteria, priority will be given to those closest to the school. Measurements are carried out in a straight line basis from the child’s home address to the address point of the school.

In the case where multiple applications for the same shared dwelling occurs (eg. Flats), a randomiser will be used to decide the priority in which the pupils within the shared dwelling are selected in the event of a tie. The random allocation process will be subject to independent verification.

 

Appeals Process

If you have applied and been refused a place at our school (in any year group), you are entitled to appeal against that decision.

Appeals for Loatlands Primary School are administered by Northamptonshire County Council Admissions Team.
