Thurlton Primary School Admissions Policy

At Thurlton Primary, we follow the Norfolk Admissions Policy. Further information can be obtained by following this link.

In the event of too many children applying for the places available in the school, the LEA will give preference to children living nearest the school, according to the following rules in this order of priority.
  1. Children with a statement of educational needs naming that school
  2. Children in public care who live in the area served by the school
  3. Children who live within the catchment area and have a brother or sister attending the school at the time of admission
  4. Children who live within the catchment area and have no brother or sister connection with that school
  5. Children who live outside the catchment area and have a brother or sister attending the school at the time of admission
  6. Children who live outside the catchment area and have no brother or sister connection with that school
In the event of over-subscription in any of these criteria, then those living closest to the school will be given priority. To determine who lives closest, the LEA will measure distance door-to-door using Ordnance Survey data.
