Admissions - 2013
In accordance with The Education and Skills Act 2008 the Governors of Jack Hunt School consulted about the proposed admissions arrangements for the Academic Year commencing in September 2013.
The governors will give priority to children with a statement of special educational needs which names the school on the statement. Parents must visit the school, by arrangement, before naming Jack Hunt on the statement, so that they are confident that the school has the facilities and resources to meet their child’s needs.
1. Looked after children (children in public care) and children who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order).
2. Students with professionally verified medical needs (certified by a doctor or psychologist); including those who require access to the school’s specialist units for physical and hearing impairment and for whom a statutory assessment is currently being undertaken.
3. Children living in the following catchment areas for primary schools:-
Gladstone Primary School, Highlees Primary School, Longthorpe Primary School, Middleton Primary School, Ravensthorpe Primary School, Thorpe Primary School and West Town Primary School. This includes children living within the above catchments who may be attending Sacred Heart Primary School and other primary schools.
4. Where the child has a brother or sister attending the school at the time of admission (the definition of brother or sister is contained in the local authority admissions booklet issued by your primary school).
5. Any other applicant.
Where the number of applicants exceeds the number of places within any of the above criteria priority will be given to those living nearest the school measured in a straight line between the centre of the home address and the centre of the school site.
The published admission number for Year 7 to 11 in 2013 will be 300.
The application procedures and timescales for Year 7 are described in the coordinated scheme for secondary schools admissions set out in Peterborough City Council’s admissions booklet.
Late applications for Year 7 will be allocated a place if possible, but if there are no places available they will be offered a place by Peterborough City Council at the nearest school to their home address at which there is a place available, measured by a straight line from their home. Parents will be required to complete an application form and details will be sent to the nearest school for consideration. If the parent wants their child to be added to the list for Jack Hunt School they will be added to the list in criteria order.
