Children with SEND follow the same procedure as other pupils applying for places at the school. However, if additional staff, resource, support or changes to the fabric of the school are needed for the child to access the full curriculum, then these additions will need to be in place before the child is admitted.

Proposed Admission Arrangements 2019
Places will be allocated to pupils who have an EHC plan that names the school as appropriate provision. When there are more applications for places than there are places available, priority will be given in the following order:
i. Children in public care or previously in public care but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence/child arrangements order or special guardianship order.
ii. Pupils with a sibling at the school at the time of admission of the younger child. Siblings are a brother or sister living at the same address as the applicant (within a family unit) including adopted children, step-brothers, step-sisters and children in foster care.
iii. Pupils who live closer to the school than any other school.
iv. Other pupils.
If the admission number is exceeded within criterion (iii) priority will be given to those who live further from the nearest alternative school. If the admission number is exceeded within any other criterion, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school.
The distance used in a ‘tiebreaker’ for any oversubscribed criterion will be a straight line distance from the address point of the child’s home to the address point of the school. Distances will be determined by the Local Authority measured on a straight line basis using a geographical information system.
Where it is necessary to choose between two or more applicants with a criterion for a final place, the tiebreaker will be distance, with the child who resides the nearest to Towcester CE Primary School being given the place. Where there is more than one applicant at the relevant distance, then the tiebreaker will be random allocation. The random allocation process will be independently supervised.
In line with the consultation process, please see our policy for 2018 and 2019:
