2) Sibling - Children who have a brother or sister living in the same house who attends the, provided they will still be in attendance at the school in September 2017. Sibling is defined in these arrangements as step-children, foster children and half-brothers and sisters, adopted brothers and sisters or children of the parent/carer’s partner, living in the same family unit at the same address, who attend the school in question, as long as they will be at the school in September 2017.

Tie Breaker Clause (¹) If it is not possible to offer places for all applications within any criteria then priority will be given to those living closest to the school measured by the shortest walking distance from the child’s home. We will measure from the property’s address point, to the nearest school gate (using recognised routes known to the Local Authority at the time of measurement).
