Beanfield Primary School: admission Information

Beanfield Primary School​, Farmstead Road, Corby, NN18 0LJ

Oversubscription admission criteria - September 2016 entry  

Places will be allocated to pupils who have a statement of SEN or EHC Plan that names the school as appropriate provision. When there are more applications than there are places available, priority will be given in the following order:

  1. Children in public care or previously in public care but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence/child arrangements order or special guardianship order
  2. Pupils with an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child
  3. Children of staff where that member  has been employed at the school for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made, and/or the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is demonstrable skill shortage in the area
  4. Pupils who live within the area defined as Beanfield. This area encompasses all houses within the bordering area of A6003, A427, Jubilee Road and Gainsborough Road; including all roads leading from Tower Hill
  5. Other pupils

Tiebreaker  

If the admission number is exceeded within any criteria, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school. Measurements are carried out in a straight line from the home address to the address point of the school. In the case where multiple applications for the same shared dwelling occurs (eg. flats), a randomiser will be used to decide the priority in which the pupils within the shared dwelling are selected in the event of a tiebreaker.

Definition of sibling

For administration purposes, the Trust considers a sibling connection to relate to any of the following:

  • A brother or sister living at the same address, who shares the same parents
  • A half-brother or half-sister living at the same address, where two children share one common parent
  • A step brother or step sister living at the same address, where two children are related by a parent’s marriage
  • Adopted or fostered children living in the same household under the terms of a Residence Order.

The Trust does not consider there to be a sibling connection in respect to the following:

  • Cousins or other family relationships not included above
  • Where the claimed sibling link will not be a registered pupil at the Academy at the start of the new academic year
  • Where the siblings do not live at the same address

For the sibling link to apply, one of the siblings must be a registered pupil at the named academy. It would not be sufficient, for example, if the sibling had been a pupil in the past.

Additional sibling link information:

Although the definition of “sibling” does not specify whether the sibling should be younger or older, it should be noted that the sibling link only applies to pupils with an older sibling at the named academy at the point of application and expected to be on roll at the point of admission.

Definition of home address

The home address is defined as the address of the adult with parental responsibility with whom the child normally lives and which applies at the time of application. A fraudulent claim to an address may lead us to withdraw an offer of a school place. Applications based on future addresses can only be considered up to 6 teaching weeks before the child is expected to take up the place and upon confirmation of a minimum of six month tenancy agreement or exchange of contracts.
