Oversubscription criteria

If the academy receives more applications that meet the selection criteria above than there are available places, priority for admission will be in line with the oversubscription criteria set out below:

1. Looked after children and those who were previously looked after but immediately after being looked after was adopted or became subject to a child arrangements order or special guardianship order. A looked after child is a child who is in the care of a local authority, or being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions (definition used is in Section 22(1) of the Children Act 1989).

2. Children with a sibling, as defined in 2.1 above, already at the academy at the time of admission.

3. Children in the academy catchment area. If applications exceed the numbers in any one category, the highest priority will be given to children living nearest the academy, as defined in 2.1 above.

4. Distance will be used as the last criterion for families who don’t fit into 1, 2 or 3 above.

In-year admissions

Applications for in-year admissions are considered in the same way as those made at the beginning of the academic year. We will also consider whether it is appropriate to place a student in the class late based on the learning that has been missed. If the student is transferring from another sixth form and was doing an equivalent course this will be taken into account in deciding whether a place can be offered.

In-year admissions forms can be obtained from the Sixth Form, please contact sixthform@ormistonvictoryacademy.co.uk to arrange a meeting.

If the academy refuses entry, the local authority may request a direction from the Education Funding Agency (on behalf of the Secretary of State). The decision of the Secretary of State will be binding upon the academy.

Unsuccessful applications

The academy will inform the child’s parent if a decision has been made to refuse their child a place at the academy for which they have applied, this will include the reason why admission was refused, information about the right to appeal, deadlines and contact details.
