However, parents/carers may find it helpful to know that, if there are insufficient places available to meet demand, places will be allocated to children in accordance with the following list of priorities:
- Children in the care of the local authority (looked after children), or previously looked after children;
- Children with strong medical or other exceptional reasons for attending the school;
- Children who currently have an elder brother or sister at the school, providing the family home is within the catchment area for the school;
- Children living within the catchment area for the school;
- Other children.
If it should be necessary to decide between children within any of these priority groups, the local authority will use an electronic random allocation system to decide which of the children within that priority should be offered the available places. This system will be independently monitored.
