  • Children who have a sibling attending the school in Reception or Years 1 to 10
  • Children who live closest to the school
  • Places will next be given to children of members of staff at The Hessle Academy

Applications received relating to children with statements of special educational needs will be dealt with in accordance with the National code of Practice on Special Educational Needs. Where a school is named in a child’s statement of educational special needs, the school has a duty to admit the child.
