Oversubscription criteria

The governors will admit all pupils with a statement of Special Educational Needs which names the school.

  1. The governors will admit 'looked after children', or previously 'looked after children' but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence or special guardianship order.
  2. The governors will admit children on social or medical grounds, where professionals have clearly identified that the school will best meet the needs of the child. These applications must be accompanied by documentary evidence from appropriate professionals within the Health or Social services* (see below).
  3. Children who have a sibling attending the school at the time of admission (see sibling definition below).
  4. Children of worshipping members of any Church which is located in the ecclesiastical parish of St. Peter’s, Weston Favell and is a member of Churches Together in England. These applications must be accompanied by form SIF/A available from the school. The completed SIF/A will then be sent to the minister with form SIF/B to verify church allegiance.
  5. Children living with their parent(s)/legal guardian(s) in the ecclesiastical parish of St. Peter’s, Weston Favell (see residence definition below).

  7. Children of parent(s)/legal guardian(s) of other faiths, or none, who wish their child to be educated in this church school and Christian environment.

Tiebreaker

Where there are more applications in any one category, applications will be prioritised on the distance from the address point of the child’s home to the address point of the school. Distances are measured on a straight line basis, using a geographical information system.

*Social/medical need: definition/evidence required

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 your preferred school. This can be sent in a sealed envelope if you prefer. If accompanied by a professional’s letter, they MUST demonstrate in their judgement why Weston Favell CE Primary School can meet your child’s needs, and also demonstrate why other local schools cannot meet your child’s needs. It is not sufficient for a professional to say in their judgement only Weston Favell CE Primary can meet your child’s needs, they must state why schools B or C cannot meet the needs. The evidence is considered by the Admission Panel of governors.

Definition of residency

The child’s place of residence is the address of the parent or legal guardian with whom the child spends the majority of time during the school week (parent(s)/legal guardian(s) may be asked to produce evidence of residency/home address at any time during the admissions process.)

Definition of siblings

The definition of a brother or sister (sometimes referred to as a sibling):

  • a brother or sister sharing the same parents
  • a half brother or half sister where 2 children share one common parent
  • a step-brother or step sister, where two children are related by a parent’s marriage/partnership
  • adopted children

A brother or sister must be living at the same address when the application is made.

Worshipping member

For your information, our guidance on the term "worshipping member" is as follows:

At least one of the parents or guardians of the child is regarded by the priest/minister/worship leader as part of the worshipping community at the church/worship centre. This would not necessarily mean that the parent is a "member" in a technical sense (e.g. through baptism, confirmation or electoral roll) but would imply a pattern of attendance at worship (on Sunday or at other times) that is on average once a month for a twelve month period.
