Published admission number : 150 places
Where the number of applications is less than the published admission number all applicants will be offered a place .
Where the number of applications is greater than the published admission number ; after the allocation of children with an EHC plan , the admission criteria will be applied in the following order of priority :
1 . Children who are Looked After or Previously Looked After and those who immediately after being looked after became subject to adoption , a child arrangement order , or special guardianship order . Including children who appear ( to the admission authority ) to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted .
2 . Children with a sibling already on-roll at Ealing Fields High School when they apply . A sibling relation does not apply when the child currently on roll will leave the school before the sibling starts .
3 . 15 places for children showing an aptitude for music . Places will be allocated in order of ranked assessment score .
4 . The remaining places will be allocated in accordance with the Tie Breaker arrangements ( see below ).
Tie breaks Distance will be used as the first ‘ tie-breaker ’ if two or more applicants are equally qualified for a place within the oversubscription criteria .
Distance is measured in a straight line from the unique address point for the applicants ’ home address to the site for Ealing Fields High School which is , Little Ealing Lane , W5 4EJ , using the Local Authority ’ s computerised mapping system based on ordnance survey data .
In cases where applicants live equidistant from the school , the available place will be allocated using a random computer selection by Ealing Local Authority .
Multiple birth and same year siblings
Where applications are received from twins , triplets or other multiple birth siblings and one child is selected for a place , Ealing Fields will admit over the published admission number ( PAN ) in order to support the family . This will only apply where one sibling would be within the PAN and the other sibling ( s ) would be above the PAN ( i . e . where the 150th place is offered to a multiple-birth sibling ).
