Danesholme Junior Academy: admission information

​Danesholme County Junior School, Motala Close, Corby, Northamptonshire NN18 9DT

Oversubscription criteria September 2019 entry

Following the allocation of places to pupils who have an EHC Plan which names the school as appropriate provision, when there are more applications for places than there are places available, priority will be given in the following order:

  1. Looked After or previously Looked After children.
  2. Children already attending the Danesholme Infant School.
  3. Children already living on the Danesholme estate. A map showing the boundaries of the estate is available from the Academy office.
  4.  Children with a sibling* currently attending the Academy at the time of admission.
  5.  Where there are medical grounds (supported by a Doctor’s certificate) for admitting the child. Parents must provide evidence from an appropriate professional detailing why only this school can provide for the needs of the child and why other local / alternative schools cannot. Evidence for these applications will be considered by the Principal.
  6. Proximity of the child’s home to the Academy, those living nearest being accorded the higher priority.

Tiebreaker 

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

Oversubscription criteria 2018 to 2019 (in-year applications)

The Danesholme Junior Academy will first accept all pupils with a statutory right to a place at the Academy through a Statement of Special Educational Needs or 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 or previously looked after children.
  2. Children already attending the Danesholme Infant School.
  3. Children already living on the Danesholme estate. A map showing the boundaries of the estate is available from the Academy office.
  4. Children with a sibling currently attending the Academy at the time of admission.
  5. Where there are medical grounds (supported by a Doctor’s certificate) for admitting the child. Parents must provide evidence from an appropriate professional detailing why only this school can provide for the needs of the child and why other local or alternative schools cannot. Evidence for these applications will be considered by the Principal.
  6. Proximity of the child’s home to the Academy, those living nearest being accorded the higher priority.

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.
