In the event of over subscription we will offer places to applicants in this order:

Category 1.

Children in public care (looked after children) and all previously looked after children And then


Category 2.

Children who have a sibling at Broomfield School who is on our school roll at the time of the proposed admission.


And then

Category 3.

Children for whom Broomfield School is appropriate on exceptional medical grounds.

Applications under this criterion will only be considered if they are supported by an attached written statement from a doctor. This must demonstrate that there is a very specific connection between the child’s medical need and the school.

And then

Category 4.    Children whose parent is a member of staff who has been employed at the school concerned for two or more years at the time of application and/or children of a member of staff who has been recruited to fill a vacancy for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.

And then

Category 5.    Other children Children living nearest to the school measured ‘as the crow flies’ that is in a straight line from the child’s permanent home address to the main entrance of the school (travel by private car or public transport not taken into account). ***

*** Permanent home address is the address where the child usually lives. When parents live separately, the home address will be where the child spends the majority of the school week.

If a child lives equally with both parents at different addresses, the home address will be the address of the main parent eligible to receive child benefit for the child.

Appeals against non-admission are dealt with by an independent panel. Details of admission and appeal arrangements are published each year. Broomfield school is committed to the co-ordinated approach to admissions administered by the London Borough of Enfield.
