Admissions

Bridgend County Borough Council Admission Policy

Yr 7 Application for Secondary School - October 2020

 ADMISSIONS AND TRANSFERS

 The entry of children into schools is controlled and administered by an ‘Admissions Authority’ which in the case of Llangynwyd Primary School is Bridgend County Borough Council. Each parent is asked to complete an online form to apply for a place at school or contact Pupil Services within Bridgend County Borough Council.

 

Applications to school for admission need to be made at the following stages of your child’s education:

  • Prenursery
  • Nursery
  • Reception
  • Primary/Secondary school transfer

 

 

Where the number of applications exceeds the number of places available, Bridgend County Borough Council ( The Local Authority) will apply the following oversubscription criteria, in order of priority, to allocate the places available:

 

  1. Children who are looked after or previously looked after.
  2. Children whose place of ordinary residence is within the school’s defined catchment area.
     
    Where a school is oversubscribed under this criterion, the local authority will allocate the places in the following order of priority:
     
  • Children with siblings attending the school in the academic year 2020-2021.

         A sibling is classified as a half or full brother/sister; a step-brother/sister, an adopted

         brother/sister; or a child living in the same household.  

         When allocating places, if the last place is offered to a multiple birth child (eg a twin

         or triplet), the local authority will also admit the other sibling/s.
 

  • Proximity to school, as measured by the nearest available safe walking route(from home to the main school gate).The Council uses software to measure all distances that takes into account assessed safe routes to the school/s.

 

 

3. Children not currently ordinarily resident within the school’s defined catchment area whose parents/carers have satisfied the local authority, by the published closing date for submission of the relevant school admission applications, that the child will be ordinarily resident within the defined catchment area by the commencement of the school term to which the application relates.

 

Where a school is oversubscribed under this criterion, the local authority will

allocate the places in the following order of priority:

 

  • Children with siblings attending the school in the academic year 2020-2021.A sibling is classified as a half or full brother/sister; a step-brother/sister, an adopted brother/sister; or a child living in the same household.

        When allocating places, if the last place is offered to a multiple birth child (eg a

        twin or triplet), the local authority will also admit the other sibling/s.

 

  • Proximity to school, as measured by the nearest available safe walking route(from home to the main school gate). The local authority uses software to measure all distances that takes into account assessed safe routes to the school/s.

 

4. Children recommended for placement for medical, psychological, or social reasons, eg young carers.

 

To satisfy this criterion, parents/carers must provide supporting evidence from a

registered health professional. It is expected that the parents/carers provide this

evidence at the time the application is submitted. Where there are good reasons

why this is not possible, the evidence must be provided prior to the allocation and

offer of places. The evidence must set out in detail why the named school is the

most suitable school and what difficulties would arise if the child had to attend

another school.

 

5. Children living outside the school’s defined catchment area will be considered for

any remaining places in the order of priority set out below:

 

  • Children with siblings attending the school in the academic year 2020-2021.A sibling is classified as a half or full brother/sister; a step-brother/sister, an adopted brother/sister; or a child living in the same household. When allocating places, if the last place is offered to a multiple birth child (eg a twin or triplet), the local authority will also admit the other sibling/s.
  • Proximity to school, as measured by the nearest available safe walking route (from home to the main school gate). The local authority uses software to measure all distances that takes into account assessed safe routes to the school/s.
