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

If the admission number is exceeded within any of the above criterion, priority will be given to those who live closest to the Academy. Distances are measured from the property to the address point of the Academy. It is measured on a straight line basis using a geographical information system. Each address has a unique address point established by the Ordnance Survey and the Royal Mail address files. The address point for a property does not change.

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.
