St Benedicts's Primary School

Reduction to Published Admission Number

Date: June 2017

Dear Parent/Carer,

St Benedict's Infant School Reduction to Published Admission Number for Reception Places in September 2017 and September 2018

I am writing to inform you about a proposed change to the published admission number at St Benedict's Infant School for entry to Reception in September 2017 and September 2018.

It has been considered by the Governing Body and the Leadership Team of the school, and supported by the Local Authority, that a reduction in the admission number from 150 to 90 for 2017 and from 150 to 60 for September 2018 should be sought from the Schools Adjudicator. The request for this change will help the school effectively manage their intake with a view to improve the overall education offer.

The change to the admission number from 150 to 90 will not affect the current pupils at the school or those with an offer for reception in September 2017.

The Local Authority will be consulting on the proposed changes of the admission number. The consultation will run from 12th June 2017 for six weeks to 21st July 2017.

We would like to give all current and future parents the opportunity to comment on the Local Authority's proposal to reduce the admission number and if you wish to you may do so through the following website:

Full details of the proposed change including information of alternative ways to make comments are detailed in the document below.

Following this consultation, all comments received will be forwarded along with the proposal to the Office of The School Adjudicator for a decision. We will notify you of the decision of the Adjudicator when this has been made.

A copy of the draft proposal is available to view or download from below.

Yours faithfully
