Danesholme Infant School admission information

Oversubscription criteria: September 2018 entry

The Danesholme Infant 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 with a sibling attending the Academy or the linked Danesholme Junior Academy at the time of admission.
  3. Children who live closer to the preferred school than any other school.
  4. Other children.


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.

Definition of siblings

A sibling is defined as children who live as brother or sister in the same house, including natural brothers or sisters, adopted siblings, stepbrothers or sisters and foster brothers and sisters or another child normally living for the majority of term time in the same household, where an adult in the household has parental responsibility as defined by the Children Act 1989, or any child in the household where an adult in the household is defined as a parent for the purposes of Section 576 of the Education Act 1996. This could include a person who is not a parent, but who has responsibility for them.
