    • the key dates
    • a search tool to see if your home address gives any higher priority for admission to any school(s)
    • an explanation about how places are offered if there are more applications than spaces (oversubscribed)
    • the online application portal - apply online and you’ll be sent your offer by email
    • a summary of each school’s individual admission policy criteria
    • data about who got a place in the last 3 years - this will help you work out if there is a reasonable chance of your child qualifying for a place.
    • Information about applying under a specific admission criteria (such as your child being previously looked after). It is really important to ensure you submit all supporting evidence by the deadline to show you meet any such criteria.
