Front Lawn Primary Academy Admissions Consultation 2022/23

Posted on 10th December 2020

Front Lawn Primary Academy has is proposing changes to the school’s admissions arrangements from September 2022.

In accordance with The School Admissions Code 2014, The Kemnal Academies Trust (TKAT), the admissions authority for Front Lawn Primary Academy, is seeking your view on the proposed changes during a 7 week public consultation commencing 10th December 2020 and concluding on 31st January 2021.

TKAT will then consider all feedback received throughout the consultation period and determine the final 2022/23 admissions arrangements by Sunday 28th February 2021. The final policy will then be published on the school’s website.

The proposed changes to admissions arrangements are set out below:

 The addition of a 6th oversubscription criterion giving priority to children in receipt of Early Years Pupil Premium attending the Academy pre-school setting.

 A change in the order of oversubscription criteria to give priority to siblings regardless of whether they live in the catchment area of the school.

 A change to the oversubscription category for children of staff removing the reference to a catchment area.

 A more specific definition of home address for avoidance of doubt.

 An amendment to the definition of sibling to include the children of co-habiting partners and clarify those not included in the category, such as niece, nephew and friends.

 A broader definition of the children of staff to include a co-habiting parent.

 Clarification that there is no automatic transfer from the nursery to reception classes at the school.

Any other non-substantive changes to the arrangements have been made as they are either no longer relevant or to ensure legal compliance with The School Admissions Code 2014.

In proposing these changes TKAT have assessed the impact on stakeholders and consider the substantive changes to have little or no impact on parental choice or pupil place planning locally.
