Admissions

The academy will follow the admissions arrangements of Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council as agreed in the Admissions Annex of the Rossington All Saints Academy Funding Agreement.  The admission number for 2017-2018 is 150 and children will be admitted during the Autumn term prior to their 12th birthday.

Applications to the academy's year of entry should be made in accordance with the relevant CAS (Co-ordinated Admission Scheme).  Applications should be submitted by 31st October 2017.

Criteria for Admission

Where children have a statement of special educational need and the academy is named as the most appropriate educational setting, the child will be admitted.

Oversubscription Criteria

Where there are more applications for admission than the published admission number, the Governing Body/Admissions Committee will apply the following criteria in strict order of priority:

  1. Looked after or previously looked after children.
  2. The children of parents/carers who are resident in the catchment area of the Rossington pyramid of primary schools, in particular those schools within the boundaries of St Michael's Rossington and St Luke's New Rossington (a map is available from the academy).
  3. The children of parents/carers who are resident outside the catchment area of Rossington pyramid primary schools, in particular the schools located within the boundaries of the parishes of St Michael's Rossington and St Luke's New Rossington and whose parents/carers and whose child/children (in order of priority): 
  • Regularly and frequently attend the parish churches of St Michael's or St Luke's and will have an elder brother or sister in the academy at the anticipated time of admission. (clarity on frequency of attendance can be gained from the academy).
  • Regularly and frequently attend the parish churches of St Michael's or St Luke's at the anticipated time of admission.
  • Regularly and frequently attend another Church of England Church and will have an older brother or sister within the academy at the time of admission.
  • Regularly and frequently attend another Church of England Church at the anticipated time of admission.    
  • Regularly and frequently attend another Christian Church participating in the 'Churches Together in England' (details available from the academy) and will have an elder brother or sister at the academy at the anticipated time of admission.
  • Regularly and frequently attend another Christian Church participating in the 'Churches Together in England' (details available from the academy).
  • Parents/carers with an existing child in the academy at the anticipated time of admission.
  • Other children.

Should the admission number be reached mid category, applications in that category will be prioritised on the shortest distance measured in a straight line from the front door of the student's home address (including flats) to the main entrance of the academy, using the Local Authority's computerised measuring system, with those living closer to the academy receiving higher priority.

Tie Break    

In the event of two or more students living equidistant from the academy, the place will be decided by drawing lots.  The first name being drawn will be offered the place.
