Consultation on the admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools for September 2020

Closed 19 Nov 2018

Opened 8 Oct 2018

Overview

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.

A full summary of the changes and a copy of the proposed admission arrangements for all community and voluntary controlled schools are set out in the 'Related documents' below.

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   

 

What Happens Next

Thank you for taking the time to respond to the consultation on admission arrangements for 2020.

After the closing date, responses will be collated and presented to the County Council's decision making Cabinet on 29 January 2019. It will decide whether or not to proceed with the proposed changes as well as determining the admission arrangements for all community and voluntary controlled schools for which no changes are proposed. Cabinet’s decision will then need to be ratified by the full County Council on 5 February 2019. Once determined the final admission arrangements for all community and voluntary controlled schools will be placed on Surrey's website at www.surreycc.gov.uk/admissions
