Oversubscription criteria

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

  1. Children in public care (looked after children) or previously in public care
  2. Pupils who will have an older brother or sister continuing at Abbeyfield School at the time of admission of the younger child
  3. Pupils who live closer to Abbeyfield School than any other school
  4. Other pupils 

Distance tiebreaker

If the admission number is exceeded within criterion (3), priority will be given to those who live furthest from the nearest alternative school. If the admission number is exceeded within any other criterion, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school using Northamptonshire County Council's geographical information system.
 
If this school receives more applications than there are places available, the policy of fair banding is applied.
