  2. Children who live in the linked area and have an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child.
  3. Children of staff - where that member of staff has been employed at the school for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made, and / or the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage in the area.
  4. Children who live in the linked area - Boughton
  5. Children who live outside of the linked area and have an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child.
  6. Other children.

​Tiebreaker

If the admission number is exceeded within any of these criterion, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school.

The distance used in a tiebreaker for any oversubscribed criterion will be a straight line 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.
