Isham Church of England Primary School: admissions information

​Isham Church of England Primary School, Church Street, Isham, Wellingborough, NN14 1HD

The governing body are the admission authority in this Voluntary Aided school and are therefore responsible for all admissions. When there are more applications than there are places available, the governors will admit pupils according to the following criteria which are listed in order of priority. The governors will admit all children with a statement of Special Educational Needs which names the school.

Oversubscription criteria

 

  1. ‘Looked after children’ - that is children in local authority care or previously in public care but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence or special guardianship order
  2. The governors will admit one pupil 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
  3. Children living with their parent(s)/legal guardian(s) in the ecclesiastical parish of St. Peter’s, Isham (*see residence definition below).
  4. Children who have a sibling attending the school at the time of admission (**see sibling definition below)
  5. Children of worshipping members of any church that is a member of Churches Together in England (this includes the Church of 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
  6. Any other child

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 will be determined by the Local Authority, measured on a straight line basis, using a geographical information system.)

*Definition of residency


The child’s place of residence is the address of the parent(s)/legal guardian(s) 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 two 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.
