Danesholme Junior Academy: admission information

​Danesholme County Junior School, Motala Close, Corby, Northamptonshire, NN18 9DT

 Oversubscription criteria

Following the allocation of places to pupils who have a statement of Special Educational Needs which names the school as appropriate provision, when there are more applications for places than there are places available, priority will be given in the following order:

  1. Children defined in the code of practice guidelines as ‘looked after children’ or previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence or special guardianship order.
  2. Where children already attend Danesholme Infant School.
  3. Where children already live on the Danesholme estate. A map showing the boundaries of the estate is available from the school office.
  4. Where a child already has a brother or sister currently attending the school at the time of the admission.
  5. Where there are medical grounds (supported by a doctor’s certificate) for admitting the child. Parents must provide evidence from an appropriate professional detailing why only this school can provide for the needs of the child and why other local/alternative schools cannot. Evidence for these applications will be considered by the Head teacher and Chair of Governors.
  6. Proximity of the child’s home to the school, those living nearest being accorded the higher priority.

In the event of oversubscription within any criterion, places will be allocated on the basis of proximity: this will be determined by the local authority using their standard method.
