The Local Governing Body will now consider any comments received and will determine the policy at the next meeting of the LGB before 21st April.

In our proposed policy for 2016-2017 we have removed some paragraphs which are no longer relevant and made some compliance changes. We believe that this new version is a lot simpler for parents to understand and more streamlined.  

The main changes are as follows: 

  • Removal of paragraphs relating to the change from being an independent school e.g. reference to Junior school changed to Primary Phase etc. and about where ‘the school is building to full capacity’
  • Our new admission number for Y7 (150) and Reception (60)
  • A statement of how we tie-break when we have two or more candidates with the same MFL aptitude test score
  • Slight change to the wording of the sibling criterion to make clear that an older sibling cannot give the sibling priority to a younger sibling until after the older one has started at the school. 

The following are the compliance changes to comply with the School Admissions Code and recent guidance from the Department for Education:

  • Reflection of new guidance from DfE that adopted children should be considered as all children adopted from care and not only those adopted under Section 46 of the Adoption and Children Act 2002
  • Revisions reflecting changes to the role of the Schools Adjudicator
  • Changes to frequency of consultation and consultees
  • Removal of the requirement to consult on our PAN
