Consultation: Admissions Arrangements for 2025/26
for Banstead Infant School
We are consulting on our Admissions Arrangements for 2025/26. This consultation commenced at 11am Wednesday 6th December 2023 and will close at 11am on Wednesday 31st January 2024. To take part in the consultation, please send your comments to Lisa Breeden, Admissions Officer, using the following email address: email@example.com
Our Admissions Arrangements for 2025/26 are available here Proposed Admission Arrangements for Banstead Infant School 2025-26 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:
- Changes to the Pupil Admission Number from 90 to 60 to reflect the falling number on roll that has arisen from the changing demographics in the area surrounding the school.
This consultation is taking place in accordance with the requirements as set out in the School Admissions Code (here). 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 2025/26. These will be published on our website no later than Wednesday 15 March 2024, in line with the statutory requirement.
Supplementary Form for Criterion iv of the Admission Arrangements. This form is only for staff at Banstead Infant School
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.
