Admissions policy 2020 to 2023

Introduction

Our revised admissions policy applies to all primary and secondary community and voluntary-controlled (VC) schools in Stockton-on-Tees.

All governing bodies are required by Section 37 of the Children and Families Act 2014 to admit to the school a child with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan that names the school. This is not an oversubscription criterion. This relates only to children who have undergone statutory assessment and for whom a final EHC Plan has been issued.

Where there are more applications for a school than there are places available, places will be allocated in order using the oversubscription criteria. 

For primary schools, attendance at a school nursery does not guarantee a place in the reception class of that school.
