Admission arrangements for September 2020

In accordance with Paragraph 1.42 of the School Admissions Code 2014, the Governors of St Barnabas’ Primary School wish to consult on our Admissions Policy for 2020-2021 and would welcome your views and/or comments.  As part of this consultation we are required to send it to all interested parties.

As determined by the revised School Admissions Code and The School Admissions (Admission Arrangements and Co-ordination of Admission Arrangements) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2014, we are required to consult on these arrangements for at least 6 weeks.  The consultation period commences today and ends on Monday 7 January 2019.

There have been some minor changes to the wording of the policy and the removal of one of the over subscription criteria.

If you have any comments on the proposed changes to our admission arrangements, please send them to our Admissions Secretary, Debbie Cullen at the school address below or by email by Monday 7 January 2019 so that we can determine our arrangements.  The Admissions Policy is below.
