hello, our LEA states that for community schools SEN/Looked after children get priority then siblings, then distance.
our dd has been offered a place and starts reception this jan 2011 at a one form entry school nearby, however we are hoping sell up next year and upgrade from our 2 bed flat to a house in the area as we have a ds who is currently 9 months old.
we hope to move within walking distance of the school, but not necessary within their 800m catchment cut off, my question is, would this affect entry for our ds in a few years to come?
we're going to call our LE but if anyone has been in this situation please share, thanks so much
I think at the moment in most LEAs you would get a place, but I know that some LEAs are thinking of getting rid of the sibling criterion in Secondary schools at least. You need to talk to the LEA to get chapter and verse.
