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

Admissions Criteria

HOLNE CHASE PRIMARY DETERMINED CRITERIA

Places will be allocated to pupils who have an EHC Plan that names the school as appropriate provision.

Summary of oversubscription criteria

When there are more applications for places than there are places available priority will be given in the following order:

  1. Children who are looked after (LAC) and all previously looked after children (PLAC) including those children who appear (to the admission authority) to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted (IAPLAC).
  2. Siblings of children who are attending the school at the time allocations are made and are expected to be on roll at the school at the time of the proposed admission and the place of residence is within the catchment area of the school*.
  3.  The child’s place of residence is within the catchment area* of the school and there is no sibling.
  4. Siblings of children who are attending the school at the time allocations are made and are expected to be on roll at the school at the time of the proposed admission and the place of residence is outside of the catchment area* of the school.
  5. Children of staff at the school 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, and /or the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.
  6. “Distance” from the school to the place of residence

*Catchment area as defined in the composite prospectus:

The catchment area is the area of Bletchley bounded by the branch railway line to the south, Newton Road ( odd numbers) and Shenley Road ( even number 2 18 ) to the West, then along Church Green Road ( even numbers) and Buckingham Road to the junction with the main railway line plus Bletchley Park which is shared with Rickley Park Primary school. This area includes Alford Place, Colossus Way, Enigma Place, Faulkner Drive, Hinsley Walk, Turing End, Turing Gate and Ultra Avenue.

Tiebreaker

In the event of there being more applicants meeting any of the criteria above, places will be allocated in distance order using the distance between the child’s normal home address and the school’s main entrance, measured in a straight line, using the council’s computerised measuring system with those living closest to the school receiving the higher priority. In the unlikely event of joint oversubscription, having exhausted distance, random allocation will be used as the ultimate tiebreaker. For applicants living in flats, the distance will be measured from the school’s main entrance to the front door of the ground floor flat underneath the applicant’s main residence. Where two or more pupils live at the same distance, the tiebreaker will be random allocation

**Sibling

A brother or sister (sibling) is defined in these arrangements as children who live as brothers or sisters 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.

The criteria have been the subject of appropriate consultation and scrutiny and determined by the Academy Trust.
