Admissions

The new School Admissions Code 2021 comes into force on 1 September 2021 and all admission authorities are required to comply with the mandatory requirements of the Code.

In order to comply with the new requirements, Larkfields Junior School Governors as the admission authority has varied its arrangements for 2022-2023. 

Please note that the Larkfields Junior School PAN (Published Admission Number) is 60.

 

In the event of over-subscription, Larkfields Junior School Governors use the following set of criteria:

  • Children looked after by a local authority and previously looked after children.
  • Children who attend the linked infant school at the closing date for applications and who, at the time of admission, will have a brother or sister attending the school or the linked infant school.
  • Other children who attend the linked infant school at the closing date for applications.
  • Children who live in the catchment area at the closing date for applications, who do not attend the linked infant school but who, at the time of admission, will have a brother or sister attending the school or the linked infant school.
  • Other children who live in the catchment area at the closing date for applications and do not attend the linked infant school
  • Children who live outside the catchment area and who do not attend the linked infant school but who, at the time of admission, will have a brother or sister attending the school or the linked infant school.
  • Children who live outside the catchment area.

Within each of the criteria, priority will be given to children who live nearest to the school as the crow flies (by straight line). Distances are measured from the main administrative point at the school campus to an address point (using eastings and northings as defined by Ordnance Survey) to the child’s home using the local authority’s computerised distance measuring software.
