School admissions and oversubscription 2019

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Haringey Borough Council,

Please could you provide me with the following information relating to school admissions for every state school or state school site within your local authority on national offer day 2019:

1. The name of the school or school site

2. The DfE number or URN of the school

3. The Published Admissions Number of the school in that year

4. The total number of times the school was listed as a preference

5. The total number of offers made

6. The number of offers made to siblings of existing pupils

7. The number of offers made under any proximity, distance or “other children” oversubscription criterion

8. The name of the admission criterion under which the last successful applicant was admitted, e.g. "Distance"

9. The home-to-school distance and unit of measurement (and whether this measurement was straight line or walking distance) of the last successful applicant, where distance was used to prioritise this last place

10. Whether the school was oversubscribed in that year

Please always list the school or site, even if there is little admission information available.

As I understand it, this information is normally recorded as a dataset, so it would be great if your response could include the data in an electronic, reusable format such as Excel or CSV, as required by section 102 of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012.

I am asking for this in order to supplement a website I have created to help parents find out more about schools near them, in particular admission results. You can see it here: http://admissionsday.co.uk.

Please do email me or call me on the number below if you wish to discuss this request, particularly if there are any issues or complications that could lead to a refusal.

Thanks in advance for your time in putting this together.

Yours faithfully,

Mike Thompson

Please find below the information requested for each mainstream state
