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.
