Consultation on the admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools for September 2018

Closed 24 Nov 2016

Opened 14 Oct 2016

Overview

Surrey County Council would like your views on:

  • proposed changes to admission arrangements for some community and voluntary controlled schools for September 2018
  • the admission arrangements for all remaining community and voluntary controlled schools for September 2018
  • 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 Friday 14 October 2016 to Thursday 24 November 2016.

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. Stoughton Infant School – introduction of a sibling link with Northmead Junior
  2. St Andrew's CofE Infant Shool – decrease in reception published admission number from 40 to 30
  3. Walsh CofE Junior School - decrease in junior published admission number from 75 to 64  

We also have a statutory duty to consult on our Relevant Area every two years. This is the area within which schools must consult on their admission arrangements.

 

What Happens Next

Thank you for taking the time to respond to the consultation on admission arrangements for 2018.

After the closing date, responses will be collated and presented to the County Council's decision making Cabinet on 31 January 2017. 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 7 February 2017. 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
