Admissions criteria

The timetable for primary school admissions, including appeal dates, can be found on the Middlesbrough Council Website.  All documentation is available from the school office on request. 

Parents/carers are able to make online applications for admission via the Middlesbrough Council web site – www.middlesbrough.gov.uk

Where more parents/carers have expressed a preference for a particular school than the admission number, the Local Authority must apply its over-subscription criteria in deciding which parents/carers preferences can be met. After the admission of pupils with statements of special educational needs where a particular school is named in the EHCP, the over-subscription criteria for primary schools will be applied as follows;

  • ‘Children looked after’, in public care, for whom the school has been expressed as a preference.
  • Pupils permanently resident in the Admission Zone, i.e. the address at which the child is registered for child benefit, who express a preference for that school (proof of address may be required).
  • Pupils who will have a brother and/or step brother and/or sister and/or step sister or the child of the parent/carer’s partner living at the same address attending the school in the September of admission.
  • Pupils with social and/or medical reasons for attending the school, which in the latter circumstances are substantiated by the LA medical advisors.
  • Pupils who attend the nursery of the school they wish to attend in reception.
  • Pupils who reside closest to a particular school, measured in a straight line. The measure will be taken from the front door of the pupils’ home to the main entrance of the school.

When distinguishing between pupils within the same criteria the pupil with the highest second criteria will be admitted i.e. a pupil living within the admission zone who has a brother or sister attending the school in the September of admission will have a higher criteria than a pupil who lives in the admission zone but does not have a brother or sister attending the school.
