After the allocation of children with an EHC plan, the admission criteria will be applied in the following order of priority: 1. Looked After Children (LAC), including those that have ceased to be so because they were adopted, became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order. 2. Children who, at the time of their proposed admission to the School, will have a sibling (that is a brother, sister, half brother or sister, step or adopted brother or sister or the child of the parent/carer’s partner) attending Greenford High School. In every case, the child should be living within the same family unit at the same address. Independent verification may be required to prove that a sibling relationship exists, for example birth certificates.
