Hertfordshire County Council

We’re proposing to make changes to the school admission arrangements for the school year 2022-23.

Consultation start date: 26 October 2020

Consultation closing date: 6 December 2020

 

Hertfordshire County Council's proposed school admission arrangements for 2022-23

The county council proposes the following changes to its admission arrangements for 2022-23:

  1. to amend the wording and definition of Rule 5 to:

    Children for whom it is the nearest school or academy. This includes all schools except those which allocate places on the basis of faith (membership or practice) before allocating on the basis of distance/location.

  2. to clarify our policy on twins and multiple births by amending the definition to:

    Hertfordshire County Council (HCC), as the admission authority will admit over the school’s published admission number when a single twin/multiple birth child is allocated a place at a school.

  3. to reduce the published admission number at Markyate Village School and Nursery

  4. to maintain the existing relevant areas used for consultation purposes.

 

Further information about the proposals is included in the following documents:

 

The following arrangements have not been amended but are provided for information:

 

Please ensure that your response is received by 6 December 2020. As required by the School Admissions Code (December 2014), the county council will also be consulting the governing bodies of all community and voluntary controlled schools where the school’s published admission number (PAN) is proposed to remain the same or increase.

 

The following information is about consultations where Hertfordshire County Council is not the admitting authority. Any feedback should be provided direct to the school or local authority, as indicated.

Proposed admission arrangements for voluntary aided, foundation schools and academies for 2022/23

Take a look at the proposed admission arrangements for 2022/23 for academies, voluntary aided and foundation schools.

Contact the schools direct if you would like to make comments or respond to these proposed arrangements. Your responses will be taken into account by the school when determining their arrangements.

Schools and academies without proposed arrangements for 2022/23 will continue to use the same arrangements as determined for 2021/22. Whilst these schools are not proposing any changes that require a consultation, schools may increase their published admissions number (PAN) without consultation.

Check the school directory for information about a schools PAN for 2021/22.
