Some schools in the borough may be over-subscribed. The following information outlines our process when this is the case.
If places become available in an over-subscribed school, after parents have been informed of the allocation of places, all applicants for that school will be considered and the available places will be allocated in accordance with the authority's published over-subscription criteria.
If parents have not been successful in gaining a place at their preferred school, their child's name is placed on a waiting list. Should places become available, they will be allocated in accordance with the over-subscription criteria. Waiting lists will be maintained until the end of the Autumn term 2021.
