Admission Arrangements for Blofield Primary School
To apply for a place at Blofield Primary.
If there are more applications for places than there are places available, Norfolk County Council will give preference to children living nearest to the school, according to the following rules in this order of priority:
Children who are due to start school and
- where a member of staff has been employed at the school for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made and/or
- the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for there is a demonstrable skill shortage
- live outside the area served by the school
If all children within any of the above rules cannot be offered a place, the highest priority will be given to children living nearest to the school within that rule.
To determine who lives nearest, distance will be measured on a straight line 'as the crow flies' basis, using Ordnance Survey data. The address will be measured from the post office address point on the property. In the unlikely event that distance does not separate the final two or more pupils seeking the last remaining place, a random allocation will be used to determine who is offered the final place.
NOTE: Criteria 7 only applies to schools which have a Specialist Resource Base on site. Feeder school priority willl only apply in the first year of entry to the school.
