Consultation on Admission Arrangements for 2019/2020
Between 19 December 2017 and 31 January 2018, the Governors consulted on admission arrangements for the academic year 2019/20. They were consulting on a proposed change to the oversubscription criteria, which is a set of criteria that will determine how places will be allocated in the event that there are more applications than places available for admission to reception class or for casual and in-year admissions to other year groups.
The proposed change was as follows -
To introduce an additional oversubscription criterion which gives priority to children of teaching staff of the school where the member of staff has been employed at the school for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made and will be in employment as a teacher at the school when the child starts school.
All the responses to our consultation were strongly supportive of the proposed change, stating that you felt it would aid teacher recruitment and retention.
With your support, we have amended our oversubscription criteria to introduce this new criterion which will give priority to children of teaching staff of the school. This will apply for admissions from 1 September 2019.
