Oversubscription Criteria

Places cannot be guaranteed.  If there are more applications than places available according to the school’s Published Admission Number (PAN*) applications within each Admissions Policy category are ordered on the basis of straight-line distance from the school, starting with the shortest and places will then be allocated up to the PAN* of the school.  Distance is measured using the Council’s computerised measuring system.   There are however regulations in place which means that places must initially be provided for pupils with a Statement of Special Educational Needs who names the school.  Also Children in Care must be given the highest priority in Admissions Policy oversubscription criteria.

*Priestnall School’s Published Admission Number (PAN) for the academic years 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 is 255
