Admissions Consultation for Admission Arrangements 2022-20223
The letter (below) was sent out to all parents, prospective parents, local childminders, schools and the local admissions authority to display on their website and was also published on the school website on 12th October 2020. This was in relation to amending our admissions criteria to add a section (number 6) which would give a higher priority to children who attend our nursery, at the time of admission, than those who do not from the academic year 2022-2023. The admissions consultation period was between the 12th October and the 23rd of November 2020. All interested parties were invited to respond to the letter before 10am on 23rd November 2020.
The only response received was from the NCC Admissions Authority and they also offered advice on wording of the policy . The wording of the policy was amended in line with the recommendations from the admissions authority. The Autumn Full Governors Meeting on 25th November 2020 included a section (9.1 LGB/113/20 Admissions Consultation) where the headteacher outlined all points raised by the Admissions Authority. Each point was discussed and considered by the governors. Following the discussion the governors agreed to proceed with the proposed changes to the Admissions Policy 2022-2023 (add new criteria 6 . Other Children - who attend Peafield Lane Nursery at the time of application.)
Letter sent out to parents advising them of result of Admissions Consultation is also below.
