We use Hertfordshire County Council's oversubscription criteria which are as follows :




Rule 1: Children looked after and children who were previously looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a child arrangements order or a special guardianship order).

Rule 2: Medical or social 

Children for whom it can be demonstrated that they have a particular medical or social need to go to the school. A panel of officers will determine whether the evidence provided is sufficiently compelling to meet the requirements for this rule. The evidence must relate specifically to the school applied for under Rule 2 and must clearly demonstrate why it is the only school that can meet the child’s needs.

Rule 3: Linked School 

(This rule only applies to pupils who are currently attending an infant school which has a linked junior school.)
In the case of junior schools, children who attend the linked infant school at the time of their application.

Rule 4: Sibling

Children who have a sibling on the roll of the school or linked school at the time of application*. This applies to reception through to Year 5 in infant, junior and primary schools; and from reception through to Year 3 in first schools; and from Year 5 to Year 7 in middle schools.

Rule 5: Nearest school

Children for whom it is their nearest community or voluntary-controlled school or an own admitting school or academy2 using Hertfordshire County Council’s admission rules.

Rule 6: Distance

Children who live nearest to the school.

Children not considered under rule 5 will be considered under rule 6.

These rules are applied in the order they are printed above. If more children qualify under a particular rule than there are places available, a tie break will be used by applying the next rule to those children.
