Danetre and Southbrook Learning Village: admissions information

​Danetre and Southbrook Learning Village, Hawke Road, Southbrook Estate, Daventry, Northants NN11 4LJ

Oversubscription criteria

Places will be allocated to pupils who have a statement of special educational needs or an EHC Plan which name the academy as appropriate provision. When there are more applications for admission than places available, priority will be given in the following order:
  1. Looked after children and children who were ‘previously looked after’, but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence, or special guardianship order.
  2. Children of staff employed at DSLV academy in excess of 2 years.    
  3. Where there will be an older sibling* in attendance at DSLV at the date of admission. Sibling refers to brother or sister, half brother or sister, adopted brother or sister, step brother or sister, or the child of the parent or carer’s partner where the children live at the same address.      ​
  4. Exceptional social or medical needs. If you believe that your child has exceptional medical or social needs you will need to provide evidence of this from an appropriate professional. The needs must relate to your child and the evidence must detail how the needs of your child can only be met at DSLV. Information on exceptional medical needs should be sent directly to the academy.
  5. Pupils who live in the linked area associated with the academy: Daventry, Norton, Badby, Everdon, Fawsley, Byfield, Newnham, Weedon Bec, Stowe IX Churches, Upper Stowe, Woodford Halse, Charwelton, Canons Ashby, Eydon, Little Preston, Preston Capes, West Farndon, Dodford.     
  6. Pupils attending the designated contributory primary schools (Badby, Byfield, Newnham, Weedon Bec, Woodford Halse) and continuing in attendance until the final offer of places is made.
  7. Other pupils.

​Distance tiebreaker

If the admission number is exceeded within any of the above criteria, priority will be given to those who live closest to the academy. Distances are measured from the property to the address point of the school. It is measured on a straight-line basis, using a geographical information system.

The point from which your property is measured is known as the ‘address point’. Each address has a unique address point established by the Ordnance Survey and the Royal Mail address files. The address point for a property does not change. In the case of multiple applications from the same shared dwelling (e.g. flats), random allocation will be used to decide the priority given to each of the pupils within the shared dwelling.

Please note that DSLV is a 3-19 academy and not 4-19, because we also have a Nursery which takes from age 3.
