Consultation of Draft Admissions Policy 2023/24

We are consulting on our Admissions Arrangements for 2023/24. This consultation will commence at 9am Wednesday 10 November 2021 and will close at 5pm on Friday 7 January 2022. To take part in the consultation, please email your comments to Lisa Breeden, Admissions Officer, using the following email address: school@bansteadinfant.co.uk

Our Admissions Arrangements for 2023/24 are available here Draft-Admissions-Policy-2023-24.pdf  in full. Anyone wishing to participate in the consultation is encouraged to read these in detail.

The key changes to our admissions arrangements are as follows:

  1. The removal of the ‘social/medical’ oversubscription criteria as our school aspire to support any child whatever their needs.
  2. The removal of the ‘nearest school’ oversubscription criteria. This follows guidance from the Schools’ Adjudicator that this criteria should not be used as it inadvertently creates a catchment area.

This consultation is taking place in accordance with the requirements as set out in the School Admissions Code School admissions code 2021 (publishing.service.gov.uk). The consultation must take place for six weeks and it is good practice that this six-week period excludes school holidays.

The GLF Trust Board is the Admissions Authority for our School. It will review all responses to the consultation prior to agreeing the final Admissions Arrangements for 2023/24. These will be published on our website no later than Tuesday 15 March 2022, in line with the statutory requirement.

Applying for an out of chronological year place

Surrey have recently provided further guidance on admitting children out of their chronological year group. In general, it is the view of the local authority that children should be educated in their chronological year group, with the curriculum differentiated as appropriate, and that they should only be educated out of their chronological year group in very limited circumstances. Each request will be considered according to the circumstances of the case and what is in the child’s best interests. This will not normally be for more than a single National Curriculum year. Please click on the link below to read the full document or contact the school for further information.
