We are already fully subscribed for September and have just received an application for a place from a family that have only just moved into the area.
The daughter has an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan which names our school because they live close by. The year group is already full and meeting her additional needs will put considerable strain on the class and teacher.
Can we refuse her application? There is a school in the town centre that I know does have spaces in that year group.
