Minutes:

Cllr Laura Mayes, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Children, Education and Skills presented a report which detailed the four elements of the School Admission Policy 2023/2024, as part of the statutory process for the determination of admission arrangements to maintained schools.

 

Cllr Mayes reported that one change being proposed for Voluntary Controlled, and Community Schools related to waiting lists. In previous years children refused a place at their preferred Voluntary Controlled or Community school were automatically placed on the waiting list. However, in the 2023/24 scheme, any parent who has been refused a place at one of these schools will now need to opt to go on the waiting list.

c)    the proposed admission arrangements for Voluntary Controlled & Community Secondary Schools for 2023/24.

Reason for Decision:

 

The Local Authority has a statutory duty to have a determined admission policy for 2023/24 in place on or before 28 February 2022.
