    1. Looked after children and all previously looked after children. A 'looked after child' is a child who is (a) in the care of a local authority, or (b) being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions (see the definition in Section 22(1) of the Children Act 1989) at the time of making an application to a school. Previously looked after children are children who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a child arrangements order or special guardianship order) .
    2. A child with exceptional medical or social grounds . Applicants will only be considered under this heading if the parent/carer or their representative can demonstrate that only the preferred school can meet the exceptional medical or social needs of the child. This can be in the form of a testimony from a medical practitioner, social worker or other professional who can support the application on an 'exceptional' basis. Exceptional medical or social grounds could include, for example: a serious medical condition, which can be supported by medical evidence or a significant caring role for the child which can be supported by evidence from social services.
    3. Children with a sibling already attending the school at the time of admission . Children will be classed as siblings if they live in the same household in a single family unit. This includes for example, full, half, step, or adoptive brothers or sisters.
    4. Children whose parent/carer is a member of staff employed on a permanent contract directly by the school for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made or where the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage evidenced by completion of the staff supplementary information form 1 . (This covers staff working at the school to which the application relates but does not include staff who work on the school site for other employers) .
    Other children not shown in higher oversubscription criteria.
