Letter from
Councillor Kevin Gillott
The information contained in this guide relates to the
admission of children to reception classes for the
2014/15 academic year. It also applies to children
who will transfer from infant school to junior school in
September 2014.
Enhanced-resource schools are mainstream schools
with additional resources, such as extra staff, for
certain children with Statements of Special Educational
Needs. Pupils are not generally taught separately and
are included in the mainstream classes.
Starting school is a huge step for any child.
Nursery schools generally cater for children between
the ages of three and four.
Special schools are attended by children with Statements
of Special Educational Needs. Special schools provide
for pupils whose disability requires a more comprehensive
approach than a mainstream school or an enhancedresource school can provide. Some experience of
mainstream school may be possible. The council
handles admissions for all special schools.
By now you’l| have had some thoughts about the
school you’d like your child to attend. This guide is
designed to help you through the process so it’s as
simple as possible.
Junior schools cater for pupils aged between seven
and 11.
Community and voluntary controlled schools are
funded by Derbyshire County Council with the
headteacher and governing body responsible for
running the school. The admissions policy is
determined and administered by the county council.
Foundation schools are funded by Derbyshire
County Council but responsibility for running the
school rests with the headteacher and governing
body. The admissions policy is determined and
administered by the governing body.
Academies are funded directly by central government
and responsibility for running the school rests with the
headteacher and academy trust. The admissions policy
is determined and administered by the academy trust.
If you don’t have internet access Call Derbyshire on
01629 533190 to make a telephone application.
Paper forms are also available, if you prefer, by
calling 01629 537499 or emailing
[email protected]
We’re keen to make sure that starting school is a
positive experience for your child, and lays firm
foundations for a bright future for them.
We hope this guide is useful. lf you need further
information visit derbyshire.gov.uk/admissions or call
our admissions and appeals team on 01629 537479.
l wish you the very best and hope your family enjoys
taking this next step together.
We use the word parent throughout the guide. It
means anyone who has a parental responsibility in
accordance with the terms of the Children Act 1989.
A few children with special educational needs require
a detailed assessment by us. This is called a statutory
assessment of special educational needs. The child’s
requirements are set out in a document called a
Statement of Special Educational Needs.
LIST OF SCHOOLS
Voluntary aided schools are jointly funded by
Derbyshire County Council and a voluntary organisation,
usually a church diocesan board. The headteacher and
governing body run the school. The admissions policy
is determined and administered by the governing body.
Catholic schools are voluntary aided schools.
If you consider your child Catholic, it means he or she
is also resident in the normal area of a Catholic school.
If you are unsure about your child’s status regarding
the Catholic school serving your area, contact the
diocese for advice. The number is on page 4.
It’s easiest to apply for a school place online at
derbyshire.gov.uk/admissions where you’|l find
information, support and advice.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Primary schools generally cater for pupils aged
between five and 11. However, if the school has a
nursery unit, it will cater for pupils aged between
three and 11.
The normal area is a defined geographical area, made
up of the area around the school, which the school
serves. You will be advised of your normal area school
if you apply online or by phone. Alternatively, you can
enter your postcode into an interactive tool on our
website, www.derbyshire.gov.uk/admissions to find
out what your normal area school is. You can also find
out from the Admissions and Appeals Team by emailing
[email protected] or ringing the Admissions
and Appeals Team on 01629 537479. School normal
area maps can be viewed via Search for a School at
www.derbyshire.gov.uk/education/schools_colleges
As a parent you play a vital part in helping your son or
daughter adjust to this important milestone in their
educational journey.
APPLYING FOR A PLACE
Infant schools generally cater for pupils aged
between five and seven. However, if the school has a
nursery unit, it will cater for pupils aged between
three and seven.

You fill in one application only, no matter how many schools
you want to apply for. There is no need to fill out a separate
application for each school. Only make one application
online, by phone or paper – not one of each. Derbyshire
County Council acts as a clearing house for admitting all
Derbyshire pupils to primary, infant and junior schools.
If you are a parent living in Derbyshire, excluding Derby city, the
information contained in this guide explains how you can apply
for a primary school place for your child – whether that school is
in or outside Derbyshire. If you are requesting a place at a school
outside Derbyshire we will send the form to the neighbouring
council for consideration and liaise with them through the
process. The decision on whether the child can be offered a
place will be taken by the council which runs the school, or the
governing body if it is a voluntary aided, academy or foundation
school. You may want to check with the school’s home council
how places are allocated in that area. This does not include
independent schools. Similarly, if you live outside Derbyshire but
want your child to attend a Derbyshire school you should make
the application through your home council who will liaise with us.
We invite you to state preferences for any three
schools and give your reasons.
We would prefer you to apply online. It’s quick and it’s
free. See www.derbyshire.gov.uk/admissions
If you cannot access the internet you can apply by
phone. Ring Call Derbyshire on 01629 533190.
The call centre is open between 8am and 8pm,
Monday to Friday, and Saturdays 9.30am to 4pm.
You may prefer to fill in a paper application form
available from the Admissions and Appeals Team on
01629 537499. You can fill in your preferences and
hand the form in to a Derbyshire primary school by
school closing time on 15 January 2014. Or post it to:
The Admissions and Appeals Team,
St Helena Centre, Sheffield Road,
Chesterfield, Derbyshire S41 7LU
Transfer from infant to junior school
When children are due to leave infant school and need
to move to a different school for their junior education,
parents must make an application. A place in a
particular infant school does not guarantee a place at
the associated junior school. Similarly, a place at a
particular junior or primary school does not guarantee
a place at a particular secondary school.
The closing date for parents to return forms is midnight
on 15 January 2014. Applications are needed from all
parents, including those who want their child to attend
their normal area school.
Supplementary Forms
Some voluntary aided, academy and foundation
schools may want you to fill in supplementary forms
or provide documentation in addition to an application
you make to us. Look at the school’s brochure to see
if this is the case. This is so that they can apply their
own admission criteria. For example, they might want
proof of your address or proof that your child has
been baptised. Supplementary forms are available
from the relevant school and also from Derbyshire
County Council, including online. Any additional
paperwork of this type should be returned to the
school by the closing date. This supplementary
paperwork is not instead of our application form.
You will still need to make an application to us.

Please read all the information contained in the
guide before making an application. The council is
not presently able to write to parents reminding
them of when their child should start school.
Even if you have already approached a school or feel you
have put your child’s name down at a school – that is not
a formal application. A formal application can only be
made by following the process explained in this guide.

Important points
• Don’t name the same school more than once as a preference – this
will not increase your chances of a place.
• Think about listing your normal area school.
You may want to consider including the normal area school as one of
your preferences, though it does not have to be your first preference.
If you do not include the normal area school as one of your preferences,
it may fill up with pupils who have said they would prefer to go to that
school. This could mean the only school with available places may be
further away and could mean you have to pay for transport to a
distant school.
shown in the list at the back of the guide) which takes
account of the amount of accommodation available.
In community schools and voluntary controlled
schools, Derbyshire County Council decides the
rules for getting places.
In the case of offers for places in schools in
neighbouring councils, they make the decision and
we make the offer on their behalf.
In voluntary aided Church of England, Catholic and
Methodist schools, as well as foundation and academy
schools the governors decide admission rules for their school.
Admissions criteria
The rules are known as ‘admissions criteria’.
Under the 1996 Education Act, you have a legal right
to express a preference for which school you want
your child to attend. The county council and school
governors have a general duty to meet this preference
– as long as it does not “prejudice the provision of
efficient education or the efficient use of resources” or
the council or governors are required to take extra
measures under the Key Stage 1 class size legislation.
Even if your child attends a nursery class at a school
or co-located children’s centre you must make a new
application for a reception place. Children do not
transfer automatically. Similarly, a new application
must be made for transfer from infant to junior school.
Parents should be aware that some junior schools
do not have sufficient places to admit all pupils
from the local infant school.
Attendance at a particular nursery gives no priority for
a place at an infant or primary school. Similarly,
attendance at a particular infant school gives no priority
for admission to a particular junior or primary school,
except in Eckington.
In law there is no automatic right to a place
in any particular school.
• Only make one application online, by phone or on paper.
We will offer you one place at the highest priority
school possible.
• Late applications received after the closing date will be included only if
the reason for the delay is considered exceptional and appropriate evidence
has been provided. Other late applications will not be considered until after
applications received by the closing date have been dealt with.
Where we cannot offer a place at any of your chosen
schools your child will be allocated a place at the
normal area school – if places are still available – or
the next nearest school with places available.
You should bear in mind that school admissions for
children starting school for the first time and for children
transferring from infant schools to junior education are
considered on an annual basis – so it is not possible
to confirm that a place is available at a school before
16 April in the year before your child will join.
Each year primary schools have to admit eligible pupils
on request up to their published admission number (as
Page 10
Community and voluntary controlled schools
Individual pupils who have a Statement of Special
Educational Needs which names the school will be admitted.
In deciding on admissions to all community and
voluntary controlled schools in Derbyshire, the
following order of priority will be adopted. Different rules
apply in Eckington and part of the Long Eaton area.
These rules are set out separately on the next page
together with a list of the schools to which they apply.
1. Looked after children and children who were
looked after but ceased to be so because they were
adopted (or became subject to a residence order or
special guardianship order).
2. Children living in the normal area* served by the
school at the time of application and admission who
have brothers or sisters attending the school at the
time of application and admission.
3. Children living in the normal area served by the
school at the time of application and admission.
4. Children not living in the normal area served by the
school but who have brothers or sisters** attending
the school at the time of application and admission.
5. In the case of voluntary controlled church schools, children
whose parents request a place on religious grounds.***
LIST OF SCHOOLS
• Consider how your child will get to school when making your preferences.
You are responsible for getting your child to school. If your child gets a
place at a distant school, this could mean that you pay transport costs.
Details of the transport policy are on page 16. Read these carefully
before deciding your preferences.
Who decides the rules?
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
• If you do not make an application you cannot assume your child
will get an automatic place at your normal area school.
We will first offer places to those who have expressed a preference.
If you do not make an application we will only be able to give your child
a place at your normal area school if places are still available. If your
normal area school is full we will give your child a place in the nearest
school which has room. This could mean you paying transport costs to
a distant school.

Definitions
*“Living in the normal area”, is defined as the child
having settled residence in a property which is the child’s
only or main residence. Documentary evidence including
proof of residence at the property concerned may be
required e.g. council tax/utility bills, sale/rental agreements.
The County Council reserves the right to withdraw any
offer of a school place which has been obtained as a
result of misleading or fraudulent information.
The county council reserves the right to withdraw any
offer of a school place which has been obtained as a
result of misleading or fraudulent information.
Please note a place cannot be guaranteed for any child,
even those living in a school’s normal area (or, in the
Eckington area, attending a contributory primary school).
**The term brother or sister includes:
(a) a half-brother and/or a half-sister
(b) a legally adopted child being regarded as a brother
or sister
(c) a step-brother and/or step-sister residing in the
same family unit
***Parents seeking a place at a voluntary
controlled school on religious grounds should obtain
a letter of support from a Minister, Priest or Pastor or
Religious leader if the child is a member of another
Christian Church or World Faith, who knows the
family and can confirm regular attendance at public
worship. [Regular worship is defined as attendance at
public worship at least once a month.] This must be
included with the application. Where appropriate
baptismal certificates should also be supplied.
Exceptional circumstances will be considered if
explained in writing by the relevant religious leader.
****Route Measurement The Children and Younger Adults
Department has a Geographic Information System (GIS)
to measure the nearest available route. It is measured by a
standard walking distance calculated to within two
metres. This measurement is taken from the postal
address file, normally the house front door. For schools
the grid reference is taken from the postal address file and
will normally be the centre of the school. Footpaths that
are known and assessed as suitable by the Council when
places are allocated will be used in distance calculations.
Please note that not all footpaths are recorded on the
GIS system, and not every route is assessed as suitable.
If you are seeking to rely on a minor footpath or a newly
developed route as your nearest available route, you may
wish to check that the route is one recognised by the
County Council for school admission purposes. Routes
brought to the attention of the Council will be added to
the GIS system if they are assessed as suitable. However,
new routes recognised after school places have been
allocated during a normal admissions round will not be
taken into account during the same admissions round.
Residence – in all categories
The home address used for school admission
Where an application includes more than one address due to
shared parental responsibility, we will use the address where
the child resides for the majority of the school week (where
they usually or mainly sleep between Monday and Friday).
Parents and carers are required to submit full details
with supporting information to enable us to determine
which address to use for the purpose of admission.
Where parents provide evidence that the child resides
equally at both addresses during the school week, and
we are unable to reach a decision based on the
information received, parents will be asked to notify
the Council of the mutually agreed address to be used
for the purpose of school admissions. Please note the
same address will be used in the assessment of
eligibility for home to school transport assistance.
Where the county council has reasonable grounds for
believing the home address is not the child’s only or
main residence it reserves the right to carry out
investigations which may include visits to the property.
What to do if both parents cannot agree on the
school(s) to be applied for
Parents are expected to consult with each other and agree
on the school(s) for which they wish to express a preference.
The Council is unable to investigate whether applications
have been agreed, or to resolve disagreements between
parents. In the absence of agreement between parents the
Council will process the preference of the parent who has
care of the child for the greater part of the school week (see
definition of residence). In cases where the Council is unable
to determine the home address (see definition of residence),
and/or there is no parental agreement or Court Order,
the Council will be unable to process the application further
until the matter has been resolved. Parents are encouraged
to resolve disagreements as soon as possible, as delays
may affect the availability of places at preferred schools.
Once a school place has been offered, any
disagreement on the child’s placement will be a
matter for parents to resolve.
Voluntary aided, academy and foundation schools
The criteria for admissions to aided, academy and
foundation schools are decided by each school’s governing
body and are listed briefly on pages 54 to 69 of this guide.
Full details can be obtained directly from the school.
Withdrawing an offer
For admission procedures to be fair it is important
that all the information you provide is accurate. If we
find that any information provided by parents is
misleading or fraudulent, the county council reserves
the right to withdraw any offer of a school place.
Children of multiple births
Where the final place to be allocated within the
Published Admission Number would separate children
of multiple births a place(s) will also normally be
offered to the other child/children.
What to do if…
I have changed my mind
about the school I want my
child to attend
You can change your mind easily – as long as it is
before the deadline on 15 January 2014.
If you have made an online application just log on and
amend your form.
If you have made an application by telephone you
must contact Call Derbyshire on 01629 533190.
If you have made an application on paper you should call
the Admissions and Appeals Team on 01629 537479.
But if you change your mind after the deadline preference
changes will only be accepted where the council agrees
there is good reason for doing so, for example a change
of address. Supporting evidence may be required.
You should be aware that whilst a change in your
preference order may be accepted by the council,
dependent on the point it is received in the allocation
process it may not be possible to action the change
until after the offfer date, particularly if the change
involves a school(s) in other council areas and
preference information has already been exchanged.
You should also bear in mind that if you wish to add a new
school to your preferences this may be treated as late.
If you do change your mind after the deadline you
must either email the Admissions and Appeals Team

You may want to apply for your child to change schools
other than when they are due to start primary, junior or
secondary education. This could be because of a change
of address. These are known as in-year admissions.
Changing a child’s school is a very important step to
take; it can affect your child in many ways. Guidance
notes are provided by the council to help you through
the in-year application process. It is important to read
the notes before completing an application.
lf you want to apply for a place at a school in another
council area you should contact the council where the
school is located in the first instance. Contact details
are on page 70 of this guide.
For children with statements of special educational
need parents should contact the SEN Section at
County Hall on 01629 536539 or email
[email protected]
The Council operates a Fair Access Protocol
(available at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/admissions) to
ensure that children without a school place who find
themselves in challenging circumstances are admitted
to school as quickly as possible.
Do schools have waiting lists?
For primary and junior transfer applications, waiting lists
will be maintained by Derbyshire County Council for
oversubscribed Derbyshire schools. Waiting lists will be
set up on 16 April 2014 and maintained until
20 December 2014. Children’s names will automatically
be placed on these lists where it has not been possible to
offer a place and they have given this preference a higher
priority than the school at which they have been offered a
place. A vacancy arises only when the number of offers
to a particular school falls below the published admission
number (PAN) or, in cases where an admission authority
has offered places above the PAN, when offers fall below
the revised number. (This excludes places secured
through the appeals process). Priority on the waiting list is
determined according to the published admission criteria.
This means that a child’s position on the list is not fixed
and can go up or down the list as vacancies arise and/or
further applications are received. The date of application
does not affect waiting list order.
Some voluntary aided, foundation and academy
schools may maintain waiting lists beyond this date.
Page 14
A list of neighbouring councils is given on page 70.
Appeals
When parents are unable to obtain a place for their child
at the school they want, they can appeal against the
decision to an appeal panel independent of the council
and the school. Appeals in the primary and junior
transfer round will normally be heard by 24 July 2014
and for in-year admissions will be held within 30 school
days of the appeal being lodged.
You can get more information and make your appeal
online at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/admissions.
Alternatively you can contact the Admissions and Appeals
Team by emailing [email protected] or ring
01629 537499.
Admissions authorities can refuse to admit a child if
to do so would require the school to take action such
as employ an extra teacher or build an extra
classroom to keep infant classes at 30 or less.
Parents can appeal in this situation but the appeal panel
can only uphold an appeal in limited circumstances.
The panel must dismiss the appeal where:
a) it finds that the admission arrangements complied
with admissions law and were correctly and
impartially applied; or
b) it finds that the admission arrangements did not
comply with admissions law or were not correctly
and impartially applied but that, if they had complied
and had been correctly and impartially applied, the
child would not have been offered a place;
and it finds that the decision to refuse admission was one
which a reasonable admission authority could have made.
The threshold for finding that an admission authority’s
decision to refuse admission was not one that a
reasonable authority would have made is high. The panel
will need to be satisfied that the decision to refuse to
admit the child was ‘perverse in the light of the admission
arrangements’ i.e. it was ‘beyond the range of responses
open to a reasonable decision maker’ or ‘a decision which
is so outrageous in its defiance of logic or of accepted
moral standards that no sensible person who had applied
his mind to the question could have arrived at it’.
LIST OF SCHOOLS
Alternatively, some schools in Derbyshire will
accept approaches direct, but may still require you
to complete the council’s application form. Please
note schools are required to notify the council of
all applications and their outcomes.
You are invited to name 3 schools at which you wish
your child to be considered for a place. You should
think very carefully about your choice of school(s);
these should then be listed in priority order (i.e.
beginning with your most preferred school). It is
advisable to consider including your child’s normal area
school as one of your preferences though it does not
have to be your first preference.
The Council does not maintain waiting lists for in-year
admissions for community and controlled schools.
Some voluntary aided, academy and foundation
schools in Derbyshire and schools in other council
areas may maintain waiting lists for in-year admissions
and if your application is refused you should contact
the school to place your child’s name on the waiting
list. If you wish to place your child’s name on the list for
a Derbyshire school for the next academic year you will
need to make a new application in the term preceding
the new academic year to update their application
details and confirm your continuing interest. Priority on
the waiting list is determined according to the school’s
oversubscription criteria.
Infant (Key Stage 1 and Foundation) Appeals
By law, subject to certain limited exceptions, no infant
class may contain more than 30 pupils. Infant classes
are those in which the majority of pupils will reach the
age of five, six or seven during the school year.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
If you want to apply for a place at a school in
Derbyshire you can do this online at
www.derbyshire.gov.uk/admissions
If you cannot access the internet you can apply by
phone by ringing Call Derbyshire on 01629 533190.
Internet access is available at all Derbyshire libraries,
Children’s Centres and some schools may also let you

application form. To obtain a paper form, email
[email protected] or phone the

ask for an in-year application form.
The law enables parents of children seeking a school
place to express preferences. Parents should note that
admission authorities cannot necessarily guarantee a
place for any child, even where they move into the
school’s normal area. In law there is no automatic
right to a place in any particular school.
Please check with the school concerned. Some
neighbouring councils have different rules on waiting
lists. Please check with them if applicable.

We provide assistance with transport for full-time
infant, junior and primary school pupils who do not live
within two miles walking distance of their normal area
school. It is measured by the shortest available route.
There may be exceptions to the transport rules if we
agree that the route to the normal area school is
hazardous for a child, accompanied if necessary, to
undertake on foot.
Transport to faith schools
Parents choosing a voluntary aided faith school on
religious grounds may be eligible to receive
assistance with transport if the chosen school is the
normal area voluntary school (in most cases the
nearest voluntary school) and the school is outside
the walking distance as explained above.
The Council introduced charges for faith school
transport with effect from September 2011. The
decision was taken to phase in the charges,
commencing with new transport users only and
protecting existing recipients.
Children who currently have free transport can
continue with the arrangements whilst they remain
unchanged. A new transport user is a child starting at
a new school or changing school or address,
requiring a new transport application. In this way a

Transport to other schools
Parents who send their children to a school which is

transport will be provided when a child attends a
school, other than the normal area school, which is
beyond the two mile limit but is closer to the child’s
home than the normal area school.

Sustainable modes of travel
As part of our Sustainable Modes of Travel Strategy
the authority is actively supporting all schools in
encouraging children and parents to make less use of
the car for the journey to and from school and to
consider walking, cycling and use of public transport
as viable alternatives. School travel plans have now
been adopted by all schools in Derbyshire and, through
their implementation, the authority will continue to
provide this support. For more information visit

By law, you must arrange for your child to start school
full-time at the beginning of the term* (in this context,
a term is as defined in legislation, see below) after his
or her fifth birthday – unless you make arrangements
to educate your child otherwise than at school.
All children are eligible for a full-time place in the
September following their fourth birthday.
Foundation, academy and voluntary aided schools
decide their own admission arrangements.

Many schools now offer before and after school
activities for which there is a small charge. This can
either be delivered by the school or by a partner
organisation. For further details of which schools
offer out of school childcare please contact
Call Derbyshire on 01629 533190.
On the offer of a place you have the right to defer
admission until your child reaches statutory school
age, provided the place is taken up within the same
academic year.
You should bear in mind that if you do not take up a
reception place in the academic year and choose to

Providers of nursery education should adopt an
inclusive approach, promoting equality of opportunity,
particularly to the most disadvantaged, children in
care and children with a disability or special need.
A place in a school’s nursery class or co-located

Derbyshire has 54 children’s centres across the
county. These provide a range of services to children

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Parents may choose their free early years provision
from a range of council-run, private, voluntary or
independent educational settings or a combination of
these. Some parts of Derbyshire provide council-run
nursery schools or classes. Children may be
considered for a place on a part-time basis of up to
15 hours per week, but usually they cannot join until
the start of the term following their third birthday.
If a child cannot be admitted to a nursery class at
their parents’ preferred school they should make
representations to the headteacher in the first instance.
Children who have received early years provision or
attended a council run nursery school or class will
normally go into full-time infant education in September

Figures for the 2013/14 academic year include
allocations for Derbyshire children offered places in
out county schools as a result of full co-ordination
between local authorities for Reception and Junior
intake applications.
This information is provided as a guide only for
2014/15 admissions. It must be stressed that the
position does vary from year to year. The fact that
children may have been admitted in the 2013/14
academic year does not mean that children in the
same category will be admitted in subsequent years.
This information about community and controlled
schools was correct at 30 April 2013. Similar
information about foundation, academy and voluntary
aided schools is available from the school concerned.
It was not possible to offer reception places to all
normal area children without a sibling connection or
any out of area children at the following schools:

Outline of admission policies
Please note – parents are advised to obtain full details direct from the relevant school.
Oversubscription Criteria
Where schools have more applications than places,
Governors will apply the following criteria in the order listed.
Children who have a Statement of Special Educational
Needs which names the school will be admitted. This will
reduce the number of places available. See “How to Apply
for a Place at Primary School – a Guide for Parents” for
further details about special needs provision.
1. Catholic looked after or previously looked after children.
(See Notes 1 and 2).
Catholic Voluntary Aided Primary Schools in Derbyshire
(Nottingham Diocese)
2. Catholic (see Note 2) children living in the parishes served
by the school who will have a sibling attending the school at
the time of admission. (See Note 4)
3. Catholic (see Note 2) children living in the parish(es) served
by the school.

4. Catholic (see Note 2) children living outside these parishes
who will have a sibling attending the school at the time of
admission. (See Note 4)
6. Other children who are classed as looked after or
previously looked after. (See Note 1).
7. Children who are baptised or dedicated members of other
churches as recognised by Churches Together in England
(see Note 3) who will have a sibling attending the school at

or Faith evidence has been received who will have a sibling
attending the school at the time of admission. (See Note 4)
10. Other children and those for whom no Supplementary
Form or Faith evidence has been received.
Tie Breakers
If any of the above categories are oversubscribed, (after
sibling priority) preference will be given to children who live
nearest to the school. The county council has a Geographic
Information System (GIS) to measure the nearest available
route. It is measured by a standard walking distance
calculated to within two metres. This measurement is taken
from the postal address file, normally the house front door.
For schools the grid reference is again taken from the postal
address file and will be the centre of the school. The distance
will be measured by the local authority and that data will be
supplied to the governors.
In a very few cases, it may not be possible to decide
between the applications of those pupils who are the final
qualifiers for a place (eg children who live at the same
address or have the same distance measurement). In this
exceptional situation, if there is no other way of separating
the applications then the governors will admit the additional
child above the planned admissions number. If however,
admission would result in the legal limit of 30 children being
exceeded, then the place will be allocated by drawing lots.

Denby Free CE Voluntary
Aided Primary
Oversubscription Criteria
1. Children in Public Care.
Looked after children are those who are either looked after
by the local authority or children who were looked after but
cease to be so because they were adopted (or became
subject to a residence or special guardianship order).
2. Children with a sibling already on the school roll at the
time of application and admission. For the reasons of clarity
a definition of sibling is as follows:
• A brother and/or sister
• A half-brother and/or half-sister
• A legally adopted child regarded as a brother or sister
• A step-brother and/or step-sister residing in the same family unit
3. Children who live within the ecclesiastical parish of

4. Children whose parents/guardians have requested a Christian
education. A letter of support from a priest, minister or pastor,
who knows the family and can confirm *regular attendance at
public worship, must be included with the application.
5. Other children whose parents request a place and who
can be accommodated within the admission number.
The order of applicants within any of the above criteria will
be determined by their proximity to the school. This will be
by the nearest available route. The LA has introduced a GIS
system to assist where it is necessary to measure by the
nearest available route. It is anticipated that this will be
available to measure by a standard walking distance
calculated to within 2 metres. This measurement is taken
from the postal address file, normally the house front door.
For schools the grid reference is again taken from the postal
address file and will be the centre of the school.
*Regular Church attendance for at least a year prior to the
date starting school for a parent or carer. It is not necessary
for the child to attend with the adult to meet this
requirement. They would need to attend at least once a
month. The Churchwarden would monitor this as different
clergy come each week to take services. The school would
need to inform the church if this was needed.
Oversubscription Criteria
A pupil with a Statement of SEN which specifies the school

In the event of the school being oversubscribed in any of the
above criteria the distance tie-breaker will be applied:
1. Children who are either looked after by the local authority
or children who were looked after but cease to be so
because they were adopted (or became subject to a
residence or special guardianship order).
Distance will be measured from the front door of the child’s
home address to the main entrance of the school (using the
Local Authority’s computerised measuring system). Those
living closer to the school receive the higher priority.
2. Siblings, including half brothers and sisters or adopted/foster
brothers and sisters of pupils already in the school and living at
the same address at the time of the proposed admission.
If the distance between two or more children’s homes and
the school is the same, the allocation of the place will be
made by the drawing of lots.
3. Children of whom at least one parent or carer has
regularly worshipped at a Christian church, which is a
member of Churches Together in England, for a period of at
least 6 months prior to the date of the application.
In cases where the last available place pertains to a single place
of residence from which two or more applications have been
received (twins, triplets, etc.) the statutory limit may be exceeded.
• Regular attendance means an average attendance of at
least once per month.
• Church attendance must be verified by a letter from the
relevant priest, minister or churchwarden.
4. Residence in the ecclesiastical parish of Dronfield with
Holmesfield, the normal catchment area of the school. A
map of the ecclesiastical parish is available in school.
5. Other children whose parents have requested a place.

remaining places available, the shortest walking distance
from home to school will be used as the final determinant.
Distance will be measured by the shortest walking route
from the front door of the child’s home address (including
flats) to the main entrance of the school. The current Local
Authority system for measuring this will always be used.

Redhill Primary (Foundation),
Ockbrook
Oversubscription Criteria
Parents are advised that priority is given to pupils who live in
Ockbrook but this in itself does not guarantee a place.
Where applications for admission into the school exceed the
number of places available, the following criteria will be
applied in the order set out below, to decide which children
to admit. Where after the application of any criterion, there is
still a case of oversubscription, the next criterion in the list
shall be applied. If after application of all criteria set out in
the list there is still oversubscription, then the remaining
places available shall be determined by the drawing of lots.
All children whose Statement of Special Educational Needs
names the school will be admitted.
1. Children in care or a child who was previously in care but
5. Children of staff at the school where the member of staff
has been employed for two or more years at the time at

admission given to children who live nearest to the school as
provided to the school by the Derbyshire County Council
Geographic Information System, with those having the
shortest distance taking the highest priority, (see note
below). Should Derbyshire County Council not provide this
information then the proximity shall be measured by the
distance as the crow flies from the entrance to the School
reception to the front door of the child’s home with those
having the shortest distance taking the highest priority.
Note
The County Council has a Geographic Information System (GIS) to
measure the nearest available route. It is measured by a standard
walking distance calculated to within two metres. This measurement
is taken from the postal address, normally the house front door. For
schools, the grid reference will be the centre of the school.

needs would be better met at Redhill Primary than elsewhere.
In the event of governors having to make a choice between
candidates with cases of equal strength, preference will be given
to families who live nearest to school, as measured by the
nearest available route. This will be done according to the
County’s Geographical Information System and will measure the
walking distance from the front door to the centre of the school.

5. Proximity of the child’s home to the school measured by the
local authority computer generated measuring system (information
on this is available on request) with those living nearest being
given priority. Proximity will also be used as a tiebreaker in the
event of oversubscription in any of the above criteria.
The order of applicants within any of the above criteria will be
determined by their proximity to the school. This will be by the
nearest available route. The LA has introduced a GIS system to
assist where it is necessary to measure by the nearest available
route. It is anticipated that this will be available to measure by a
standard walking distance calculated to within 2 metres. This
measurement is taken from the postal address file, normally the
house front door. For schools the grid reference is again taken
from the postal address file and will be the centre of the school.
