Consultation on school admission arrangements 2019 to 2020

Redbridge has undertaken a consultation on issues relating to school admissions, in order for the existing arrangements to be reviewed and updated.

The deadline for responses was 13 November 2017, but this was extended to 30 November 207 for those wishing to respond on the consultation on admission numbers.

The arrangements upon which the consultation was taking place were as follows: 

  • Introducing an oversubscription criterion to give priority to children of staff working at the school, up to one child per form of entry. 
  • Updates to the Fair Access Protocol to reduce the categories of children covered for placement
  • Reducing the admission number of South Park and Cleveland Road Primary Schools by 30 each, because of the oversupply of school places in that area of the borough. 

We apologise that it was not made clearer in the consultation that we were proposing to reduce the admission number at these schools because there were too many school places available in the local area.

There were 916 responses to the consultation, which are summarised in the following document: School Admission Arrangements 2019-20 Consultation Responses (PDF 146.28KB)

All observations made will be considered by the Authority's Cabinet at its meeting on Tuesday 6 February 2018 before it decides the final admission arrangements. 

Please note that Redbridge schools that are responsible for their own admissions, may also be consulting on admissions for their own schools if they propose any changes to their arrangements or have not consulted in the last 7 years. This includes all voluntary aided faith schools, foundation schools and academies, including free schools. Schools can only change their arrangements if they consult, so without consultation they must remain unchanged.
