Result of Consultation on Admission Arrangements for 2020/2021

Between 30 November 2018 and 11 January 2019 the Governors or Rimon Jewish Primary School consulted on proposed changes to the admissions policy oversubscription criteria. All Barnet primary schools, neighbouring local authorities, local synagogues, local nurseries, members of Golders Green Shul and the Rimon School community were notified of the consultation and given the opportunity to provide feedback.

Two changes and one addition were under consultation.

Change 1: To allocate open places before allocating faith places.

Change 2: To offer attendees of Alei Tzion Synagogue the opportunity to collect Certificates of Religious Practice that will give them priority over attendees of “any other synagogue”, except for Golders Green Synagogue which will remain at the top of the faith band for the over subscription criteria.

Addition 1: To include a clause about going above PAN (30 students) when the additional child(ren) is a sibling of a twin or multiple birth as required by the Admissions Code.

At this time the Governors of Rimon Jewish Primary School have agreed to Change 1 and Addition 1, which will be reflected in the admissions oversubscription criteria for the 2019-2021 academic year.

Any person or body who considers that any maintained school or academy’s determined arrangements are unlawful or not in compliance with the School Admissions Code or law relating to admissions can make an objection to the Schools Adjudicator.
