If there are more applications for places than there are places available, the Authority will give preference to children living nearest to the school, according to the following rules which can be found on the Norfolk County Council Website, link at bottom of page.
If there are more applications for places than there are places available, we will give preference to children living nearest to the school, according to the following rules in this order of priority:
Children who are due to start school and:
If all children within any of the above rules cannot be offered a place, the highest priority will be given to children living nearest to the school within that rule. To determine who lives nearest, distance will be measured on a straight line ‘crow fly’ basis, using Ordnance Survey data. The address will be measured from the post office address point on the property.
In the unlikely event that distance does not separate the final two or more pupils seeking the last remaining place, a random allocation will be used to determine who is offered the final place.
NOTE: Criteria 7 only applies to schools which have a Specialist Resource Base on site.
Feeder school priority will only apply in the first year of entry to the school.
