Havelock Infant School

Oversubscription Criteria

The published total admission number for the school is 270. For each reception intake from September the admission number is 90.

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

  1. Looked After Children and all previously Looked After Children (see paragraph 6.1 for definition of ‘Looked After Children’).
  2. Children with a sibling link (see paragraph 6.3 for definition of ‘sibling’) continuing at the school or the linked Junior School at the time of the admission of the younger child.
  3. Children who live closer to the preferred school than any other school
  4. Other children.

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 the school.

If the admission number is exceeded within any other criterion, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school.

Measurements are carried out in a straight line basis from the child’s 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 tie. The random allocation process will be subject to independent verification.

Key Stage 2 Results & School Performance Tables


School Curriculum

The school’s policy is to provide a broad, balanced education which is delivered through a knowledge and skills-based creative curriculum, ensuring that equal opportunities are given to all children. We follow the programmes of study as laid down in the National Curriculum. Full details about our themed approach to lessons across the different year groups can be found in our Prospectus.

A copy of our most recent Prospectus can be downloaded from the side bar of this page.


Pupil Behaviour

Our Behaviour and Anti-Bullying Policy will advise you on how we manage discipline and behaviour at our School.

Please see the link in our sidebar for all of our Statutory Policies.


Pupil Premium and Sports Premium

The pupil premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to underachievement. The three identified groups are: pupils who are entitled to free school meals, pupils who have a parent working for the armed services and those children in local authority care. 

The funding received by Havelock Schools has been used in a variety of ways in order to improve attainment and progress and to help overcome barriers to learning.

We know that children learn best when they are happy, secure, confident, valued, and fully included in school life. Our use of pupil premium funding takes account of wide considerations. We believe that raising standards is best achieved by ensuring that children have reasonable access to all that a school has to offer.
