Places will be allocated to those children whose families have expressed a preference for that school by submission of an application form to their home Local Authority by 31 October 2018. If there are more preferences expressed than available places, they will be allocated in accordance with the following criteria in order of priority:
1.Children who are, Looked After Children (LAC), to qualify for this criteria, currently looked after and previously looked after children are defined as:
- Children who are in the care of a local authority, or being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions in accordance with Section 22 of the Children Act 1989, at the time an application for a school is made;
- Children who were previously looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (under the Adoption Act 1976 or Adoption and Children’s Act 2002), or became subject to a child arrangements order or special guardianship order.
2. Children who have an exceptional medical or social need requiring attendance at Hampton High rather than any other school. Such needs must be supported, at the time of application, by reports or letters from suitable professionals such as GPs, consultants or social workers. Circumstances cannot be taken into account unless information is provided at the time of application and failure to provide such information at that stage may therefore affect whether or not the children are allocated places at the preferred schools. All information submitted will be regarded as confidential.
3. Children who have siblings (by which is meant full, step-, half- and adopted siblings living in the same household) at the school in years 7 – 11 at the point of admission.
4. Students (by which is meant full, step-, half- and adopted siblings living in the same household) of staff directly employed by Hampton High School for two years or more before the admission application and employed at the point of admission.
1. Any offer of a place on the grounds of proximity is conditional on the child being resident at the address provided at the closing date for application. A business address, a childminder’s address, or any address other than the child’s permanent home will not be accepted. Proof of address will be sought and may be the subject of further investigation. Temporary addresses will not be used for the purpose of administering applications.
2. Children with an Education and Health Care Plan that specifies Hampton High as the placement school will be allocated a place through a separate procedure, in accordance with the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice.
3. Applications made under criterion one must be accompanied by details of circumstance and professionally supported evidence (e.g. from a social worker); Evidence will be verified by the LA before applications are passed to schools. If a school receives an application directly, please ensure the status of a LAC or Previously LAC is verified.
4. The Authority’s Fair Access Panel may make placements, over the admission number if the school is full.
