HOW ARE PLACES OFFERED AT EARLSFIELD?

APPENDIX 1 – HOW ARE PLACES OFFERED?

Step 1 Admission groups

Earlsfield applies the guidance provided by Wandsworth and must consider nursery applications in group order starting with Group A and finishing with Group E. Please refer to ‘Choosing nursery education in Wandsworth.’

Step 2 - Admission criteria

If there are more nursery applications than places within the admission group that the school has reached, the school’s admission criteria will be used to decide which children can be offered a place within that group.

  1. Children looked after, or who have an allocated social worker who has provided written support of the application or children who are the subject of adoption and special guardianship orders who were previously looked after by the Local Authority.
  2. Children who are recommended for a place at that school following an action plan agreed by a multidisciplinary group* (for example Team around the Child (TAC).
  3. Children with a brother or sister currently attending the school and who will still be at the school when the child is admitted.
  4. Children who live nearest to the school by a straight line between your home and the centre of the school site calculated by Wandsworth Council’s Geographical Information System.

Full-time places

Having applied the criteria to determine eligibility for a Nursery place, the Governors of Earlsfield Primary School have agreed that the following criteria be applied (in numerical order) in respect of full-time places.

  1. Children looked after, or who have an allocated social worker who has provided written support of the application or children who are the subject of adoption and special guardianship orders who were previously looked after by the Local Authority.
  2. Children who are recommended for a place at that school following an action plan agreed by a multidisciplinary group* (for example Team Around the Child (TAC).

Once the above have been administered 30-hour places will be allocated provisionally on the basis that:

  • each parent (or the sole parent in a single-parent family) will need to earn, on average, the equivalent of 16 hours on the national minimum wage per week, and no more than £100,000 per year.
  • A family with an annual household income of £199,998 would be eligible if each parent earns just under £100,000.
  • Self-employed parents and parents on zero-hours contracts will be eligible if they meet the average earnings threshold.

After checks on the HMRC website, the provisional offer will be withdrawn if parents do not meet the above criteria.

If there are more applicants than places available, places will be offered on the following basis:

  1. Children with a brother or sister currently attending the school and who will still be at the school when the child is admitted. Where the number of fulltime applications exceed the number of places, places will be allocated by age, with priority given to the oldest applicant within the sibling group.
  2. Children who live nearest to the school by a straight line between your home and the centre of the school site calculated by Wandsworth Council’s Geographical Information System.

*****When deciding whether a child has an educational, medical or social need, the Headteacher will consider the child’s needs or circumstances, supporting evidence from other professionals, and the availability of nursery classes in neighbouring schools.
