Weavers Academy: admissions information

​Weavers Academy, Brickhill Road, Wellingborough, Northants NN8 3JH

Oversubscription criteria

Following the allocation of places to pupils who have a statement of special educational needs/EHC Plan, when there are more applications than places available, priority will be given in the following order:

  1. Children in public care (‘looked after’ children) or previously in public care.
  2. The governors will carefully consider other admission requests based on 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 Weavers Academy. Information on exceptional medical or social needs should be sent directly to the school and will be considered by a designated group of governors.
  3. The presence of an elder brother or sister at Weavers Academy at the time of the pupils intended admission.  
  4. Attendance at a Primary School that has traditional and geographic links to Weavers Academy. These are: Freemans Endowed CE Junior, Olympic Primary School, Ruskin Junior, Croyland Primary, Our Lady’s Roman Catholic Junior, Redwell Junior, Park Junior, Wilby CE Primary, Earls Barton Junior, Mears Ashby CE Endowed Primary, Ecton Primary and Little Harrowden Community Primary School.
  5. Other students.

Distance tiebreaker

In the event of over subscription within any of the above criteria, the general tiebreaker will be the proximity of the child’s residence to the school, with priority given to those pupils who have to travel furthest to their nearest alternative school. Measurements will be done on straight line distances, door to door using satellite navigation software.
