This consultation outlines the proposed admissions arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools from September 2018. It also sets out the proposed schemes for co-ordination for the normal years of entry.
You will also find the proposed admission criteria for Priory School, Lewes and Hailsham Community College which mirror the local authority's proposal.
We are proposing a minor change to the definition of 'looked after children' in the admissions criteria. We are also proposing to change the area for Eastbourne primary schools. We would particularly welcome your views on these aspects of our proposals although all comments are welcomed on any aspect of the arrangements.
Why We Are Consulting
This survey outlines the Authority's proposed admissions arrangements for the 2018-19 school year. Consultation begins on Monday 7 November 2016 and ends on Sunday 15 January 2017 which satisfies the duty to consult for at least six weeks.
We strongly recommend that you read the related documents with care to fully understand the proposals.
What Happens Next
Once we've consulted, the admission arrangements for primary and secondary community and voluntary controlled schools for the 2018-19 school year will be finalised and subsequently published in line with statutory guidelines.
