ADMISSION TO THE SCHOOL
Sheffield LEA links infant schools to designated junior schools. Following a decision made by the Office of the School Adjudicator in July 2002, Nether Green Junior School has two designated linked Infant Schools; Nether Green Infant Community School and Broomhill Foundation School. The school has a standard number of 90 children per year group. Details of the LEA’s admission policy are set out in the booklet “A Guide for Parents” which will be sent to all parents/carers of Y2 children as part of the transfer process. For more information about applying for a place at Nether Green Juniors or another Sheffield school, please visit Sheffield City Council School Pupil Admissions.
Nether Green Junior School is traditionally oversubscribed.
Nether Green Infant School Admission Limit 75
Broomhill Infant School Admission Limit 39
Average number of applications 114
It is clear that there can be no guarantee of a place even if a child attends a designated linked infant school. There are potentially around 114 applications for 90 places not including newcomers to the area. In the event of oversubscription to the relevant year group, places are offered in the following order of priority:
1 Special Educational Needs & Looked After Children
This category is only prioritised if a specific school is named in the statement or individual care plan.
2 Attendance at Linked Infant School
This category applies to the transfer from Year 2 to Year 3 between separate Infant and Junior Schools. Priority will be afforded for places at the Junior School to children who have attended the designated linked infant school. In the event of oversubscription from the linked infant school(s), normal admission priorities (i.e. those at points 3, 4, 5 and 6) would be applied.
3 Catchment Area
Children resident in the defined school catchment area. Check the school catchment area at www.sheffield.gov.uk.
A sibling is a child who permanently or usually lives at the same address and who will attend the preferred school at the point of entry.
5 All other applicants
If a full category cannot be accommodated, the tie-breaker will be distance from home to school, measured as the crow flies.
All parents/carers of children who are initially unsuccessful in their application will receive further details about the statutory appeals process from the Local Authority.
ADMISSION TO THE SCHOOL'S INTEGRATED RESOURCE
Our Integrated Resource is for Statemented children with significant learning difficulties and complex needs. It is funded by the Local Authority who decide which children are allocated a place. To find out about admissions to the Integrated Resource, please contact the school.
