Boughton Primary School: admissions information

​Boughton Primary School, Moulton Lane, Boughton, NN2 8RG

​Oversubscription criteria

Following the allocation of places to pupils who have a statement of Special Educational Needs which names the school as appropriate provision, when there are more applications for places than there are places available, priority will be given in the following order:

  1. Looked after children and previously looked after children*
  2. Children who live in the linked area and have an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child
  3. Children who live in the linked area
  4. Children who live outside of the linked area and have an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child
  5. Other children
*LAC (Looked After Children). Also known as children in public care. A looked after child or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence or special guardianship order. A looked after child is a child who is (a) in the care of a local authority, or (b) being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions (see the definition in Section 22(1) of the Children Act 1989).

​Tiebreaker

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

The distance used in a tiebreaker for any oversubscribed criterion will be a straight line distance from the address point of the child’s home to the address point of the school. Distances will be determined by the Local Authority measured on a straight line basis using a geographical information system.
