Consultation on the proposed changes to admission arrangements for September 2017

Closed 14 Dec 2015

Opened 2 Nov 2015

Overview

Surrey County Council would like your views on:

  • the admission arrangements for all community and voluntary controlled schools for September 2017
  • proposed changes to admission arrangements for some community and voluntary controlled schools for September 2017
  • a proposed change to Surrey's coordinated scheme for primary admissions

The consultation on these proposals will run from Monday 2 November 2015 to Monday 14 December 2015.

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

The changes being proposed are as follows:

  1. Beacon Hill Primary School – introduction of admission criteria for entry at Year 3
  2. Chennestone Primary School – introduction of a feeder link from Beauclerc Infant School for entry at Year 3
  3. Cranleigh CofE Primary - reintroduction of admission criteria for entry at Year 3
  4. West Ewell Infant School - decrease in Reception intake from 90 to 60
  5. Change to the date from which parents can apply for a primary school place – proposal to change the date from which applicants can apply for a primary school place (Reception and Year 3) so that they will be invited to submit their applications from 31 October 2016 rather than 1 September 2016

 

What Happens Next

Thank you for taking the time to respond to the consultation on admission arrangements for 2017.

After the closing date, responses will be collated and presented to the County Council's decision making Cabinet on 2 February 2016. 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 9 February 2016. 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
