Consultation on school admission arrangements 2019 to 2020

Local Authority’s Cabinet determination on 6 February 2018

We recently undertook a consultation on issues relating to school admissions, in order for the existing arrangements to be reviewed and updated.

All observations and comments received, as well as advice from officers, were considered by the Cabinet as part of the determination process.

Cabinet formally agreed the admission arrangements 2019-20 for community primary and secondary schools, which included the following: 

  • an oversubscription criterion to give priority to children of staff working at the school, up to one child per form of entry
  • reduction to the published admission numbers (PAN) for South Park to 90

They also formally agreed the following: 

  • the Fair Access Protocol for 2019-20, which reduced the categories of children covered for placement
  • the proposed Schemes for Primary and Secondary Co-ordination for 2019-20

Copies of the determined 2019-20 admission arrangements, the determined schemes for primary and secondary co-ordination and the determined policy for Fair access can be viewed on our Admission Arrangements 2019-20  page.
