Our School Aims state that;
“We believe that all children have the potential to become successful learners and we aim to prepare them for the future. We strive to provide a secure, happy and stimulating environment which will help children to learn and grow into confident, caring and thoughtful individuals.”
Northumberland County Council is obliged to admit all applicants to a school provided these do not exceed the school’s Published Admission Number (PAN). The Published Admission Number of each school for entry each September is published in the Admissions Handbook; our PAN is currently set at 30 per year group. If applications for places at a particular school exceed the Admission Number, priority is given in accordance with the criteria set out below.
Children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs that names a school on the statement must be given admission to that school before other applicants. Children with such a statement have no further rights under the School Admissions Code of Practice or this Admission Policy. However, it should be noted that where it is known before the allocation of places that one or more children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs have a school named on that Statement, this will reduce accordingly the number of places remaining available at that school.
A child in care (“looked after child”) is a child who is in the care of a Local Authority or who is provided with accommodation by that authority and is resident or will be resident in Northumberland by the appropriate admission date. Admission authorities must give highest priority to children in care in their over subscription criteria.
The priority order for considering applications is as follows:
