Determined Admission Arrangements for entry from September 2019

Oversubscription criteria – how we offer school places

Following the formal consultation between 5 December 2017 and 31 January 2018  the Trustee Board of the Learning in Harmony Multi Academy Trust have adopted the London Borough of Newham Determined Arrangements for entry into school from September 2019. 


The main changes for 2019 admissions are: 

  • A single document for infant, junior, primary and secondary school admissions.
  • Removal of catchment areas and the associated catchment area priority for infant, junior and primary schools. This change was introduced to remove a barrier to admission at the most geographically local schools, due to the local set historic boundaries of a catchment areas. 
  • Inclusion of ‘School staff children’ as an oversubscription priority group. This is to assist local schools in recruiting and retaining staff by prioritising admission of staff children to their schools and will help ensure we have no barriers to recruitment especially where there is a demonstrable skills shortage, such as maths and science. 
  • Inclusion of ‘Service children’ as an oversubscription priority group. This change complements the council’s Cabinet approved housing allocations policy which prioritises Service children whose parent/carers have previously served, or are currently serving the country.
