Sibling links at junior schools

A ‘sibling link’ is where your child already has an older sibling at your chosen school. In this case, your school place application is considered a higher priority than those without siblings attending the school.

For junior schools, this includes any brothers or sisters (including 'half' and 'step' brothers or sisters) living in the same house as their primary place of residence, who attend your preferred junior school in Years 3 to 5 at the time you make your application.
