There are a set number of school places available in Barnet. When we receive more applications for school places than we can offer, we will decide who gets a school place based on order of priority.
The priority order is based on over subscription criteria with 1 being the highest. An applicant who meets criteria 1 will be offered a school place first.
The primary schools guide has detailed information about the school admissions criteria (PDF)
