Millbrook Junior School: admissions information

​Millbrook Infant School, Churchill Way, Kettering, Northamptonshire, NN15 5BZ

Oversubscription criteria

Places will be allocated to pupils who have an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan that names the school as appropriate provision. Where there are more applications for places than places available, places will be allocated in the following order of priority:

  1. Children in public care or previously in public care. Children previously in public care are children who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a child arrangements order or special guardianship order).
  2. Children of staff at Millbrook Junior School.
  3. Children who live on the Ise Lodge Estate, (see map held in the school office) who have a sibling attending Millbrook Junior School. The sibling must still be attending Millbrook Junior School when the child is admitted to the Millbrook Junior School.
  4. Children who live on the Ise Lodge Estate, who attend Millbrook Infant School.
  5. Children who live on the Ise Lodge Estate, who have a sibling attending Millbrook Infant School. The sibling must still be attending the Infant School when the child is admitted to Millbrook Junior School.
  6. Children who do not live on the Ise Lodge Estate, who have a sibling attending Millbrook Junior School. The sibling must still be attending Millbrook Junior School when the child is admitted to Millbrook Junior School.
  7. Children who do not live on the Ise Lodge Estate, who attend Millbrook Infant School.
  8. Children who do not live on the Ise Lodge Estate, who have a sibling attending Millbrook Infant School. The sibling must still be attending the Infant School when the child is admitted to Millbrook Junior School.
  9. Children living on the Ise Lodge Estate.
  10. Other children.

Tiebreaker

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

Distance measurements

Measured on a straight line basis from the address point of the child’s home to the address point of the School, using a geographical information system. Each address has a unique address point established by the most valuable elements from the National Land and Property Gazeteer (NPLG), Ordnance Survey Master Map, Royal Mail Postal Address File and The Valuation Office Agency. The address point for a property does not change.

In the case where there are multiple applications from the same shared dwelling (e.g. flats) or where there are two homes where the distance from the address point of the home to the address point of the school (using the system referred to above) is identical, random allocation, supervised by a suitable independent person, will be used to decide the priority in which applicants are selected in the event of a tiebreaker.

Definition of sibling

A brother or sister living at the same address as the applicant (i.e. within a family unit) including:

  • a brother or sister sharing the same parents
  • a half-brother or half-sister where two children share one common parent
  • a step brother or step sister, where two children are related by a parents’ marriage or civil partnership
  • a child who has been adopted or is fostered by parents/carers who have other children
