Admission rules for St Michael's C of E VA Primary School (St Albans)

This is a voluntary aided mixed-sex primary school. 

RULE 1. Children in public care (‘Children Looked After’) and previously looked after. 

RULE 2. Children with a sibling in the school at the time of admission, or with a sibling who has previously attended the school provided that they still live within the designated area. 

RULE 3. Children whose home address is within the area of countryside which is bounded to the north by Punch Bowl Lane and to the south by Hemel Hempstead Road.

RULE 4. Children who at the time of application have their home address in the designated area (see list below)*. In the event of over-subscription in this category, the following priority order will be applied:

a) Children whose parents/carers worship regularly at St Michael’s Church, or the daughter Church of St Mary, Childwick Green, and whose application is accompanied by the school's SIF signed by the parish priest or minister verifying the required level of attendance.

b) Children whose parents/carers worship regularly at another Christian Church and whose application is accompanied by the school's SIF signed by the parish priest or minister verifying the required level of attendance.

c) Children whose home address is closest to Top School using the straight line distance measurement provided by HCC.

RULE 5. Children who live within the areas of Potters Crouch, King Harry Lane, Verulam Road and Goldsmiths Way.

RULE 6. Children whose home address is not in the designated area within the Parish but whose parents/carers worship regularly at St Michael’s Church or the daughter Church of St Mary, Childwick Green and whose application is accompanied by the school's SIF signed by the parish priest or minister verifying the required level of attendance.

RULE 7. Children of parents/carers who worship regularly at any other Christian Church, and whose application is accompanied by the school's SIF signed by the parish priest or minister verifying the required level of attendance.

RULE 8. All other children.

Tiebreaker: In the event of over-subscription in each of the criteria 1 to 7 priority will apply to children whose home address is closest to Top School. Where there is a need for a tie-breaker where two different addresses measure the same distance from the school, in the case of a block of flats for example, the lower door number will be deemed to be nearest as logically this will be on the ground floor and therefore closer. If there are two identical addresses of separate applicants, the tie break will be random.
