Procedures where London Academy is oversubscribed

If the Academy is oversubscribed after the admission of pupils with a Statement of Special Educational Needs or Education, Health and Care Plan where the Academy is named in the Statement or Plan, priority for admission will be given to those children who meet the criteria set out below, in order:

a). Children who are ‘looked after’ and children who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted or became subject to a child arrangements order or special  guardianship order under the provision of the Children Act 1989.

b). Siblings at the Academy (siblings would include half, step, adoptive and foster siblings provided they also live at the same address as the applicant). It will also include siblings of former students provided they completed their education at the end of year 11 or in Sixth Form.

c). Children attending another AIM Academy Trust school.

d). Children who are in receipt of the Pupil Premium or early years premium at date of application.

e).Students whose parent has been employed at the Academy for two or more years at the time at which the application is made and children of staff who have been employed to fill a post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.

f).Remaining places will be allocated on a geographical basis (the distance from the academy). Distance will be measured in a straight line from the address point for the child’s home to the entrance of the Secondary Principal’s office using the London Borough of Barnet’s computerised geographical information system with those living closest being given priority.

g). Distance will be used as a tie breaker in each category.
