b'Scoring systemFor applications to be considered on faith grounds under criterion 2, information must be provided by anauthorisedChurchOfficer,usuallytheParishPriest/MinisterorChurchWarden/Elder/PCC Secretary/Child Protection Co-ordinator etc.Points are awarded according to each criterion and when the total has been calculated for each child, the Governors will allocate places to those children reaching the appropriate qualifying score.This is the point at which 300 pupils can be admitted.This score varies from year to year as it is dependent upon the number of applications received and the natureoftheChurchaffiliationoftheyearsapplicants,soitcannotbedeterminedbeforeall applications have been processed.Points are allocated as follows to the information in Section B of the supplementary application form provided by the Clergy:Question 2:Child from 0 to 270 points; Parent from 0 to 270 points.Maximum 540 points. (One point for each week of weekly attendance at worship (up to a maximum points allocation of 45 per year) for each of Parent and Child over a six year period) When the total has been calculated for each child, the governors will provide their rank order to Bolton Local Authority who will make offers according to expression of parental preference.Should a situation occur where offering places to all of a group of applicants on a particular point score takes us over our published admissions number, then criteria 3 to 8 will be used as initial tie-breakers, with the highest priority for admission within that point score being given to applicants at that point score who also meet criterion 3, followed by those who also meet criterion 4, followed by those who also meet criterion 5 and so on until the places are all allocated, with distance from home to school and random allocation used as further and final tie-breakers, where necessary, as described below.If the intake is not yet full, candidates who have zero points and those not seeking places on faith grounds will be considered under criteria 3 to 8. Should a situation occur within criteria 3 to 8 where offering places to all of a group of applicants takes us over our published admission number, then priority will be given to those living nearest to the school. If two or more equal applicants for the final available place live the same distance from the school, random allocation will be used as the final tie-breaker. This will be supervised by someone independent of the school.The above process will also apply to mid-year applications if we have more applications than places available.Once all sections of the application form have been completed, the parent should send it to the Headteacher at the schools address.Waiting ListAll applications received before the schools admission closing date will be ranked in accordance with the published oversubscription criteria.Applications that do not receive an offer will be held on a waiting list in rank order.As offers are declined the next ranked application on the waiting list will receive an offer.Any late application, received after the schools admission closing date will be ranked following offers day and then placed in rank order on the waiting list.'
