Surrey County Council would like your views on:

  • proposed changes to admission arrangements for some community and voluntary controlled schools for September 2020
  • the admission arrangements for all remaining community and voluntary controlled schools for September 2020
  • Surrey's relevant area - this is the area within which schools must consult on their admission arrangements.

The consultation on these proposals will run from Tuesday 9 October 2018 to Monday 19 November 2018.

Only response forms which are fully completed with the respondent's name and address will be accepted to help eliminate multiple responses and to assess the level of local interest in each proposal.

Why We Are Consulting

We have a statutory duty to consult on admission arrangements if we intend to make a change.

The changes being proposed are as follows:

  1. Furzefield Primary School – reduction in published admission number for Reception from 60 to 58
  2. Wallace Fields Junior School – change to the measuring points used to assess each child’s nearest school and home to school distance so these will be assessed according to the nearest gate for either Wallace Fields Infant or Wallace Fields Junior school rather than the nearest gate for Wallace Fields Junior School
  3. Criterion 2 for children with an exceptional social/medical need – provision for children previously in state care outside England to be given priority within this criterion
