Determined Admission Arrangements 2020

2020 Determined Community and Voluntary Controlled School Admission Arrangements

The consultation period ran from 1 October 2018 to 7 December 2018. The Council proposed amendements to the priority for Looked After and Previously Looked After Children. One comment, supporting the proposal, was received.

The Council also proposed to combine the Templemoor/Moorlands/Worthington Catchment Areas.

Comments were received from four governing bodies:

  • Templemoor Infant School
  • Moorlands Junior School
  • Wellfield Infant School
  • Worthington Primary School

The Governing Bodies of Templemoor Infant School and Moorlands Junior School supported the proposal in principle, although they did seek reassurances from the LA that the proposal would not unduly disadvantage local residents or schools. The Governing Body of Worthington Primary School supported the proposal.The Governing Body of Wellfield Infant School did not comment on the proposal to combine the catchment area. Rather the Governing Body sought information about the possible expansion of schools in the area in the future. No other consultees responded.

The Executive determined the admission arrangements, as proposed, with effect from 12 February 2019.
