New admission priorities for community and voluntary controlled schools in East Sussex 2023-2024

Click here to visit the ESCC admissions page

1. Looked after children and children who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or subject to residence orders or special guardianship orders) immediately following being looked after.

An explanation of who falls into this criterion can be found in the 'Explanation of words and phrases' set out at: Apply for a school place 2023 to 2024/East Sussex County Council.

2. Children who will have a brother or sister at the school (or linked junior school) at the time of admission and who live at the same address, within the pre-defined community area*.

3. Other children living within a predefined community area.   

4. Children who will have a brother or sister at the school (or linked junior school) at the time of admission who live at the same address, outside the predefined community area.            

5. Other children.

Siblings

Children are 'siblings' if they are full, half, adoptive or foster brother or sister living in the same houshold including siblings attending sixth forms.

Tiebreaker

  • In the event of oversubscription within any priority, place allocation will be decided by prioritising applications on the basis of home to school distance measured in a straight line.  This will be measured from the address point in the school (supplied by Ordnance Survey) to the address point in the family home.  For split site schools, we will measure to the site where the child will attend for the majority of lessons at the point of entry.
  • In the event that applicants cannot be prioritised using the tie-breaker because the distance measurements are the same, the Authority will use random allocation to decide which children will be offered the remaining places. This will be done electronically using the Authority‚Äôs admissions software.

Applications for admission out of year group

Arrangements for requesting a delayed reception start can be found at: Admissions for summer-born children/East Sussex County Council.
