Disley Primary School Admissions Policy 2021/22 and going forward until further notice
Our Admission Policy is based on Cheshire East Council policy. As an academy, we are now our own Admission authority. Our full Admission Policy is below where you will find information about admissions and how to apply. A copy of this policy is also avaliable in the policies section. A copy of our Appeal form is also below.
ADMISSIONS POLICY: As an Academy, Disley Primary School is fully responsible for its own admissions, within national law on admissions. Where possible we do seek to work closely with Cheshire East School Admissions and co-ordinate key elements of admissions procedure and policy.
CHILDREN WITH EDUCATION HEALTH CARE PLANS: The Children and Families Act 2014 requires the governing bodies of all maintained schools to admit a child with an Education Health Care Plan that names their school.
PUBLISHED ADMISSION NUMBER: Our agreed published admission number (PAN) is 40..
OVERSUBSCRIPTION CRITERIA: Where more applications are received than there are places available (PAN), after Children with Education Health Care Plans, priority for admission will be based on the Disley Primary School published oversubscription criteria as follows:
Please see, School Admissions Code 2021
1. ‘Cared for Children’ and Children who were previously ‘Cared for’ –
2. Siblings - Pupils with brothers or sisters, step-brothers or step-sisters, foster brothers or foster sisters, half-brothers or half-sisters, adopted brothers or adopted sisters living together as part of one household, already attending the preferred school (in years Reception through to Year 5) and expected to continue at the school in the following school year. (i.e. at the time of admission).
3. Children resident within the designated catchment area of the school - Children will be classed within this criterion if they and their parents/carers are resident within the area served by the school.
4. Pupils living nearest to the school (Distance) - measured using the National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG) which measures straight line
distances in miles from the address point of the school to the address point
of the place of residence.
Notes: Where a school cannot accommodate all pupils qualifying under one of the criteria stated above, the next criteria will also be applied to determine priority for admission.
