Starting School – September 2013

Allocation Statement for The Steiner Academy Frome

As The Steiner Academy Fromewas oversubscribed, the over-subscription criteria published in the booklet “Starting School in September 2013 – A Guide for Parents”, have been applied to determine which pupils can be offered places. Unfortunately, it has not been possible to offer your child a place.

36 preferences (1st, 2nd & 3rd) were received for The Steiner Academy Frome, which has a Published Admission Number of 26. Places have been offered up to this limit.  

How the initial Allocation of Places was made:

The 26 places have been offered to pupils under the following criteria:  


Number of places offered



Looked After Children



The child or children of a Founder of the Academy Trust named in the Funding Agreement



Children whose sibling(s) are on roll at the Academy and will remain so on the date of admission. Siblings include not only natural brothers and sisters but also step brothers/sisters or brothers/sisters who have been legally adopted, so long as they are living at the same address as the family unit. However, cousins or other relatives at the same address will not be given priority



Children living nearest to the Academy (proposed site), measured as a straight line distance using a GPS system between the front door of the child’s home and the main gate of the Academy (proposed site), Victoria Hospital, Park Road, Frome



Children not satisfying a higher criterion


The Published Admission Number was reached in criterion 4. The furthest distance from the school for a place offered in criterion 4 is 0.619 miles measured in a straight line.       


This information was correct as at 19 April 2013. Please note that adjustments may take place prior to September as late applications are received.
