If you would be considered under Rule 7, please read the notes that pop up when you get your report.
A. FOUNDATION places will be offered to children who live in the Ecclesiastical Parish of Digswell and whose parents/carers play an active part in the life and worship of St John the Evangelist Church, Monks Rise, or Christ the King Church, Haldens, or Digswell Village Church. In the event of there being more than 5 applications for Foundation places, Children Looked After will be given priority. Thereafter, geographical proximity will be used to determine the offer of places. Any unsuccessful Foundation applications will be included with the non-Foundation applications. If less than 5 applications for Foundation places are received, the number of Non-Foundation places will be increased accordingly.
B. In the event of there being more applications for NON-FOUNDATION places than there are spaces available, the Governors will apply the following criteria in the order of priority of the categories listed below (with Category 1 having the highest priority, and so on):
RULE 1. Children Looked After or previously Looked After.
RULE 2. Siblings of pupils attending the school at the time of entry.
RULE 3. Children who live in Zone A on the map provided by the school.
RULE 4. Children who live in the Ecclesiastical Parish of Digswell and whose parents /carers play an active part in the life and worship of St John the Evangelist Church, Monks Rise, or Christ the King, Haldens, or Digswell Village Church.
RULE 5. Children who live outside the Ecclesiastical Parish of Digswell but whose parents/carers play an active part in the life and worship of St John the Evangelist Church, Monks Rise, Christ the King Church, Haldens, or Digswell Village Church .
RULE 6. Children not in the above categories who live within the Ecclesiastical Parish of Digswell.
RULE 7. Any other children.
Tiebreaker: If over-subscription arises within one of the above categories, the places available in that category will offered on the basis of geographical proximity, straight line distance measurement provided by Hertfordshire County Council. Where there is a need for a tiebreaker 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.
In addition to our online or paper form, please complete a supplementary information form (SIF) for this school. SIFs are available from the school and at www.hertsdirect.org
