Admission Arrangements for Harold Wood Primary School


Children with an Education Health and Care Plan are processed outside of the normal admissions arrangements.


When the demand exceeds the number of places available at the School, places are allocated by applying the following criteria in descending order of priority to applicants who have expressed any preference for the School.


1. Looked after children and children who were previously looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a child arrangements order or special guardianship order).

2. Exceptional social or exceptional medical grounds.

3. The attendance in September 2017 at the School of a sibling;

4. The distance of the home address from the School, as measured by a straight line from the School, those pupils living nearer the school being given higher priority.


If, because of over-subscription in any of the categories 1) to 3) above, it is necessary to distinguish between applicants, the distance of the applicant’s home address from the School, as measured by a straight line from the school, will be used with those pupils living nearer the School being given higher priority.

Determined Admissions


Havering Council (the Local Authority) is the admission authority for all community and voluntary controlled schools in the London Borough of Havering. This means that the Council sets the over-subscription criteria and makes the decisions as to which pupils are admitted to these schools.

The determined admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled infant, junior, primary and secondary schools in the borough can be viewed on the following page:
