Priority 3

Pupils who have a brother or sister permanently living at the same address, who are still at the school when the pupil begins. This criteria only applies to siblings who are of compulsory school age, not younger siblings who attend a nursery setting attached to a school (primary applications only).

A brother of sister is defined as a brother, sister, stepbrother, stepsister, adopted brother or sister, or children of partners who are permanently living at the same address as a family unit. In all cases, the parent who receives the Child Benefit for those children must permanently live at that address with the children.

We will consider brothers or sisters who live in separate households because the parents are separated and have shared responsibility for the children under conditions covering exceptional social or medical reasons. This does not include separate families living together in the same property.

If there are other family situations where there are different carers such as aunts, uncles or grandparents, each case will be considered individually.
