This consultation opens on 20 November 2017.

This consultation closes on 5 January 2018.

We’re proposing to make changes to the school admission arrangements for the school year 2019-20.

We propose the following changes to its admission arrangements for 2019/20:

  1. In the oversubscription criteria for first, infant, primary, junior and middle schools the wording and definition of ‘Rule 5 - Nearest School’ is amended to include all schools and academies (regardless of status) unless that school or academy allocates prioritises applications and allocates places on the basis of faith.
  2. Reference to the Shared Anti-Fraud Service is added to the definitions section in cases of fraudulent address verification.
  3. The Published Admission Number (PAN) at Watton-at-Stone Primary and Nursery School is reduced from 34 to 30.
