Corby Primary Academy: admissions information

​Corby Primary Academy, Butland Road, Corby, Northamptonshire, NN18 8QA

Oversubscription criteria

The Corby Primary Academy will first accept all pupils with a statutory right to a place at the Academy through an Education Health and Care Plan naming the Academy. After the admission of these pupils, criteria will be applied for the remaining places in the order in which they are set out below:

  1. Looked after children or previously looked after children.
  2. Children who live in the linked area and who have a sibling on roll at the academy at the time of application.
  3. Other children who live in the linked area.
  4. Other children who do not live in the linked area and who have a sibling on roll at the academy at the time of application.
  5. Other children.

Tiebreaker

Where there are more applications in any one category, priority will be given to those living furthest from the nearest alternative school.

Distances will be taken from the address point of the child’s home to the address point of the nearest alternative school (using the Local Authority standard method as described in the published information to parents).

If two children are tied for the last place, after the above distance tie-break has been applied, then a process of random allocation, undertaken by someone independent of the academy, will determine who is allocated the last place.
