Admissions Policy Consultation

Norton Infant School are consulting for a 6 week period from Monday 19th October 2020 until Monday 30th November to change their AdmissionsPolicy from September 2022. The proposed change is to the oversubscription criteria as follows, see blue:

Where the school receives more applications than it has places available, the criteria listed below will apply, after the admission of children with a statement of Special Educational Needs which names Norton Infant School, the oversubscription criteria will be:

  1. A ‘looked after child’ or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence, or special guardianship order. A looked after child is a child who is (a) in the care of a local authority, or (b) being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions (see the definition in Section 22(1) of the Children Act 1989).
  2. Children who have been on roll at the Norton Infant School Nursery at the time of application.
