Admissions Criteria

Park Road Academy Nursery Admissions Criteria

The nursery school will apply the following criteria as determined by Park Road Academy Primary School governing body:

 

  1. ‘Looked after’ children including previously looked after children. A looked after child is a child who is (a) in the care of a local authority, or (b) being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions (see the definition in section 22 (1) of the Children Act 1989). A previously looked after child is a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, child arrangement orders or special guardianship order.
     
  2. Those children who live in the catchment area of Park Road Academy Primary School who will have a sibling attending Park Road Academy Primary School at the time of the applicant’s proposed admission (including half/step/adopted/foster brothers or sisters, and any other children who are living at the same address as part of the same family unit).
     
  3. Children who live outside the catchment area of Park Road Academy Primary School, with a sibling attending Park Road Academy Primary School at the time of the applicant’s proposed admission (including half/step/adopted/foster brothers or sisters, and any other children, who are living at the same address as part of the same family unit).
     
  4. Those children who live in the catchment area of Park Road Academy Primary School.
     
  5. Children who live nearest to the School, calculated in a direct straight line from the child’s permanent place of residence to the school.

 

Oversubscription Criteria:

 

If demand exceeds supply in any of the criteria the highest priority in each category will be given to the children living nearest the nursery. This distance will be measured on a straight line ‘crow fly’ basis, using Ordnance Survey data. The address will be measured from the post office address point on the property.

 

Proof of residency will need to be submitted to the school office on the acceptance of a place. Details of the proof required will be outlined in the offer letter. 

 

If you are given a place in the Park Road Academy Nursery, it does not mean your child will automatically have an admission place in the Primary School. You will have to apply separately for a place for your child in the Reception Class.
