In Year Admissions

We currently have spaces in Reception. There is a waiting list in place at present for all year groups. If you have any queries regarding admissions to our school please contact the School Office on 01908 373640 or via [email protected]

Please note that Holne Chase Primary School is shrinking from a one and a half form entry to a single form entry school. Therefore some class sizes are smaller than others.

Tie Break Criteria

If the admission number is exceeded within criterion (2-6), priority will be given to those who are closest to the school on a straight-line basis.  A representative of the Academy Trust will undertake measurements on the school’s behalf for In-year applications. Initial Year R applications are dealt with entirely by Milton Keynes Council.

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.

Where two or more children share a priority for a place in any criterion e.g. where two children live equidistant from the school, these places will be allocated using random allocation undertaken by an independent body.  However, if children of multiple births are tied for the final place those siblings will be admitted over PAN as permitted by infant class size rules

**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.
