WHEN RECEPTION IS OVER-SUBSCRIBED PRIORITY IS GIVEN TO:
- children in public care
- children with a serious medical or social need, supported by a professional such as a social worker, psychologist or doctor
- children whose brother or sister already attends Kelvin Grove at the time of the closing date for applications and will be on the roll at the time of admission
- children for whom it is the nearest community school (measured in a straight line from home to school)
Please note that having a place in the nursery does not guarantee a place in reception; a new application must be made.
