  1. ‘Looked After Children’ and children who were previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption residence, child arrangements, or special guardianship order
  2. Children who live in Barby and Onley.
  3. Children who have an older sibling who will be continuing to attend the school at the time of admission of the younger child.
  4. Children, one of whose parents attended Barby C.E. Primary School, or who lived in Barby or Onley for at least 5 years since 2001.
  5. Other children.

Within any other criterion, applications will be prioritised on the distance from the child’s home to school (priority being given to the children who live closer to the school). Distances are provided by the Local Authority and are measured on a straight-line basis using a geographical information system.
