The reasons for agreeing these freedoms are listed below:</p><ul><li>Permission to prioritise admission of children of staff without having to meet the two-year qualification set out in the Admissions Code: granted to enable free schools to recruit good quality staff quickly, to benefit all pupils.</li><li>Permission to prioritise admission of pupils eligible for the pupil premium: granted prior to the Secretary of State extending that freedom to all academies and free schools.</li><li>Permission has been granted for three UTCs to adopt two admission numbers for entry, in order to balance entry to each of their distinct technical specialisms to recognise the availability of specialised provision.</li><li>Permission to prioritise admission of founders’ children: granted only to schools where individual founders have played a material role in setting up the free school and where they continue to be involved in the running of the school.</li><li>Meridian Angel Primary School was permitted to admit a group of displaced children who were being taught as a temporary measure in the local primary school’s annex.</li></ul>
