    I am assuming this questions relates to oversubscription.

    The answer to your question is yes, if the standard admission arrangements apply.

    If a child or young person has an EHCp then s43 CFA2014 applies:


    If the placement named in section I of an EHCp is covered by the statute then:

    "The governing body, proprietor or principal of the school or other institution must admit the child or young person for whom the plan is maintained"
