We are a non-selective and fully-inclusive community school. Pupils with an Education, Health and Care Plan will be given special consideration based on their Plan, and Looked After children will also have priority admission.
Following these children, priority will be given to siblings of current pupils, and then children on the basis of straight line distance.
The school uses the eastings and northings linked to an applicant’s address to calculate a straight-line distance measurement to the main school entrance.
If a child lives in a block of flats where a communal entrance is used, the school will use the grid references for the block, not for the individual flat. When dealing with multiple applications from a block of flats to the same community school, lower door numbers will take priority.
All applicants refused a place have a right of appeal to an independent appeal panel constituted and operated in accordance with the School Admission Appeals Code.
Appellants should appeal to the Admissions Officer (Appeals) at Lyndhurst Primary School within 20 school days, counting from the day after the date of the letter confirming that their application was unsuccessful.
Any parent/carer wishing to know of their child’s ranking on the waiting list and the criteria that applies to them has the right to be informed should they request this information.
