Early Years Oversubscription Criteria

Places will be allocated up to the funded setting number and if more applications are received than places available the following oversubscription criteria will be used to allocate the places:

  • Pupils with a statement of special education needs, which names a specific pre-school setting which the child should attend because their needs can be best met by that particular pre-school setting and its facilities, will be automatically allocated a place.

  • Looked after or previously looked after children (Evidence of a previously looked after child will be required to accompany the application form)

  • The nearest setting to child's normal place of residence, with a sibling attending the setting at the time the child will commence at the setting. If a setting is sited within a school campus, consideration will be given, if possible, if a sibling is attending the school when the child commences at the setting, provided the normal place or residence is in the catchment area of the school.

  • The nearest setting to the child's normal place of residence.

  • Residing outside the catchment area of the setting with a sibling attending the setting at the time the child will commence at the setting.  If a setting is sited within a school campus, consideration will be given, if possible, if a sibling is attending the school when the child commences at the setting. 

  • Residing outside the catchment area of the setting

  •  

Whilst consideration will be given to children who attend full-day care at a setting, or attend a Flying Start Setting at the time of application, there is no guarantee that those children will secure a place at that setting for Early Years Funded Education Provision.  If the authority is unable to offer a child session/s in their preferred setting/s, an alternative provision will be offered.
