Plumstead Manor School Admissions Statement
First priority will go to children with an education, health and care (EHC) plan naming the school.
Remaining places will be given in the following order:
Looked after children and previously looked after children, including those children who appear to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted.
Children or their immediate family member with a chronic medical condition or social care need that can only be met if a child attends a particular school.
Children who have a sibling (brother or sister) living at the same address who will be attending the school at the time of the child’s admission.
Other children based on home to school distance.
Distance from home to school is measured as a straight line from the centre of the home address to the centre of the school site. In the event that two or more applicants have equal right to a place under any of the above criteria, priority will be given to those who live nearest to the school. Should two or more applicants live an equal distance from the school, including instances where more than one applicant lives in a multi-occupancy building, the offer of a place will be decided by random allocation. Attendance at a school's sixth form, children of staff, work commitments and childcare arrangements are not part of the decision making process.
If your child’s application for a place at the school is unsuccessful parents may appeal against the decision. You can find details of the RBGs appeal process here.
