    [1] These children are Looked After by or provided with accommodation in the exercise of its functions (see the Children Act 1989 section 22(1)) by a local authority. [2] An adoption order is an order under the Adoption Act 1976 (see Section 12 adoption orders) and children who were adopted under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 (see Section 46 adoption orders). A ‘child arrangements order’ is an order settling the arrangements to be made as to the person with whom the child is to live under Section 8 of the Children Act 1989 as amended by Section 14 of the Children and Families Act 2014. Section 14A of the Children Act 1989 defines a ‘special guardianship order’ as an order appointing one or more individuals to be a child’s special guardian (or special guardians). [3] To request this priority, the application must be accompanied by a completed Supplementary Information Form for Exceptional Need which will include evidence, from a medical specialist or social worker of the need and why the child must attend this school rather than any other, based on those needs. If evidence is not submitted to the with the application, exceptional need cannot be considered. [4] Children whose home lies on the boundary line will be considered to be in the catchment. [5] ‘Sibling’ means a natural brother or sister, a half brother or sister, a legally adopted brother or sister or half-brother or sister, a step brother or sister or other child living in the same household as part of a single-family unit at the date of their application for a place. Siblings are those on roll in Reception to Year 6 or with a formal offer of admission to those year groups. [6] To regularly attend, either the parent or child attends church services on at least a monthly basis, and for a minimum period of two years immediately prior to the application being made. In the event that during the period specified for attendance at worship the church has been closed for public worship and has not provided alternative premises for that worship, the requirements of these [admissions] arrangements in relation to attendance will only apply to the period when the church or alternative premises have been available for public worship. [7] A church which subscribes to the doctrine of the Holy Trinity or a church recognised by Churches Together in England. [8] This will be any salaried person employed at this school when the application is made. Where the duties of a member of staff are undertaken at different schools in a federation or chain of schools, there will be admissions priority only at one school. This will be at the member of staff’s base school. Where that can’t be identified, priority will be at the school where he or she expects to work for most of the time in the current academic year. [9] To be eligible, children must attend for at least half of their free Early Years Entitlement. There is no additional priority with regard to sessions other than those funded by the Early Years Entitlement. We welcome applications for children regardless of where their Early Years provision has been.
