    Admissions Criteria

    Priority will be given to children in the following order:
    First Priority: A ‘looked after child’ or a child who was previously looked after.
    Second Priority: Children who have a brother or sister (including step-children, foster-children and half- brothers and sisters, adopted brothers or sisters or children of the parent/carer’s partner) living in the same house who already attend the school, as long as they will still be at the school in September 2017 (see note [1] below).
    Third Priority: Children who, at the start of the Spring Term 2017, are on the rolls of Bedford Primary School and Christ Church C of E Primary School (see note [1] below).
    Fourth Priority: Other requests that name the school as a preference (see note [1] below).
    Note [1]: If it is not possible to offer places for all applications within any criteria then priority will be given to those living closest to the school measured by the shortest walking distance from the child’s home. We will measure from the property’s address point, to the nearest school gate (using recognised routes known to the Authority at the time of measurement). If you require an explanation of how the distance from your home to school has been measured, please contact the Admissions Team.
