Dear Pranal Rai,

 

I refer to your Freedom of Information requests dated 11 March 2016 for
admissions data for each of the last 3 academic years (i.e. 2013, 2014 and
2015) for the following schools:

 

Park Road Primary, Sale

Brooklands Primary School, Sale

Stamford Park School, Altrincham

 

Springfield Primary School, Sale

Tyntesfield Primary School, Sale

Lime Tree Primary School Sale

 

It is not entirely clear what you mean from your request (i.e. "with no
sibling") however the information provided is on the basis of the last
category (oversubscription criteria) in which a place was awarded at each
school in each of the academic years. For information purposes I have
attached the 2015 Starting Primary Schools introduction booklet (I can, if
required, also provide the 2014 and 2013 booklets). However, the
oversubscription categories (Page 8 of the booklet) were similar in each
year. I think you wanted either Category 3 or Category 5 (no siblings).

 

*The distance is calculated in a direct straight line from the child’s
permanent place of residence to the school measured using property
co-ordinates provided through a combination of the Trafford Local Land and
Property Gazetteer (BS7666) and Royal Mail Postal Address Information. In
the case of a child living in a block of flats, the distance will be
measured in the same way.

Dear Byrom, Steven,

Thanks for providing the information. In my request, I mean, the the distance last admission was taken place for the student not falling in special category and also not having any sibling in school already. I presume this is Category 3.

I was also looking for 2016 data, if you can provide, specially for Park Road Primary School, Sale.

Yours sincerely,

Pranal Rai
