In the event that there are more applicants than places and after admitting pupils with a statement of Special Educational Needs, naming the school, the Governing Body of Nutgrove Methodist Primary School will allocate places using the following criteria:

1. Children in public care or previously in public care.
2. Children with siblings at the school at the time of admission.
3. Other children 


In the event of oversubscription in the number of applications made under any of the categories above, then the admissions committee will offer places to children whose family home is nearest to the school. The measurement shall be done by the local authority in a straight line using a Geographical Information System (GIS) based on local land and Property Gazetteer (LLPG) Data and the National Grid co-ordinates for the family home and the school.
