The Edward Betham Church of England Primary School Notes Note 1. A parent/guardian is any person who has parental responsibility for or is the legal guardian of the child. Where our policy refers to parents/guardians attending church, it is sufficient for just one parent/guardian to attend. Family members include only parents/guardians, as defined above, and siblings. Note 2. The Governors regard attendance at worship on a regular weekly basis as a sign of Church of England practice. A similar degree of commitment to other churches or faiths is expected. Less frequent attendance may be considered where supporting evidence is provided by a Minister or Religious Leader. Note 3. The address provided on the Supplementary Information Form will be used for ranking purposes. Where a child spends part of a week with one parent and part with another, the address provided must be the address at which the child spends the majority of the week. Note 4. Information concerning whether an applicant’s address falls within one of the named parishes can be obtained by using the postcode search at www.achurchnearyou.com Note 5. In all categories, if after applying the criteria, two or more children have equal priority, the child who lives nearest the school will be given priority. The distance from home to school is measured by a straight-line, from a point in the property to a point in the school determined by the grid references for the centre of the school’s postcode, as calculated by the Ealing Local Authority [The measuring system is an integral part of the admission software produced by Tribal Technology Ltd. It uses Ordnance Survey maps and is accurate to 1 metre.] How places were offered in 2017 Admissions criteria Offers made on national offer day Criteria 1 to 5 All applicants offered Criteria 6a Distance of last child to be offered: 0.470 of a mile Waiting lists Applicants who are unsuccessful in obtaining a place will automatically be placed on a waiting list (also in accordance with the criteria below).
