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. Children of Staff – adding priority for children of staff for all community and voluntary controlled schools
  2. Worplesdon Primary School – proposal to decrease the published admission number for Reception intake from 60 to 57
  3. Removal of ten schools from the list of schools that will be excluded when assessing each child's nearest school  proposal to remove St Joseph's Catholic Primary School - Epsom & Ewell; St Thomas of Canterbury Catholic Primary School - Guildford; St Anne's Catholic Primary School - Reigate & Banstead; St Joseph's Catholic Primary School - Reigate & Banstead; St Francis Catholic Primary School - Tandridge; St Cuthbert Mayne Catholic Primary School - Waverley; St Edmund's Catholic Primary School - Waverley; St Polycarp's Catholic Primary School - Waverley; Charters School - Windsor & Maidenhead; The Wavell - Hampshire 

 

What Happens Next

Thank you for taking the time to respond to the consultation on admission arrangements for 2021.

After the closing date, responses will be collated and presented to the County Council's decision making Cabinet on 28 January 2020. 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 4 February 2020. 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
