  2. Adequate physical accommodation is not available for the applicant.
  3. A decision to enrol would constitute a risk to the health and safety of other students enrolled.
  4. The school programme is unsuitable to the educational needs of the student and alternative suitable arrangements for an appropriate programme cannot reasonably be made at the school.
  5. A decision to enrol would clearly have a demonstrable impact on the capacity of the school to deliver programmes to other students and alternative arrangements cannot reasonably be made at the school.
  6. It is not satisfied that it has sufficient information to make an informed decision on the educational needs of the student.
