Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools:

During the Autumn Term of 2023, consultation took place to propose changes to the admission arrangements for Lancashire’s Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools, relating to September 2025 admissions.

Upon determination by Cabinet in February 2024, the following change was agreed.  For all C&VC schools, category 3 will now give priority to

Children eligible for Services Premium.

This becomes effective for September 2025 admissions.

 

For schools without a Geographical Priority Area, the admission arrangements for September 2025 onwards will be:~

When a school is oversubscribed on parental preferences, then the following priorities apply in order:

  1. Looked after children or a child who was previously looked after, but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, child arrangement order, or special guardianship order or those children who appear to the school to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted, then
  2. Children for whom the Local Authority accepts that there are exceptional medical social or welfare reasons which are directly relevant to the school concerned, then
  3. Children eligible for Services Premium, then
  4. Children with older brothers and sisters attending the school when the younger child will start, then
  5. Remaining places are allocated according to where a child lives. Those living nearest to the preferred school by a straight line (radial) measure will have priority, below.

The distance criterion will be used as the tie breaker if there is oversubscription within any of the admission criteria; it is a straight line (radial) measure.

If the Local Authority is unable to distinguish between applicants using the published criteria (e.g. siblings, those living the same distance from home to school, or families residing in the same block of flats) places will be offered via a random draw.

The distance measure is a straight line measurement (radial) between the applicant’s home address points and the address point of the school (co-ordinates provided by ordnance survey data).
