  1. Children in public care or previously in public care but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence/child arrangements order or special guardianship order.
  2.  Pupils with a brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the child.
  3.  Pupils who live closer to the preferred school than any other school.
  4. Other pupils. 


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