2020/21 Admissions Consultation

Consultation for changes to Admissions criteria for 2019/20 onwards

The Governing Body at Christ’s School would like to change the admissions criteria for entry into the School from 2020/21 onwards. The changes proposed to the criteria are detailed below.

1. The wording has been simplified to provide clarity of priority given to those applicants with Education Health and Care Plans, Looked After and Previously Looked After Children and those applying under Exceptional Social Medical criteria

2. The Oversubscription criteria has been amended to clarify that these criteria apply to both Christian Foundation (and all associated sub-categories) and Open applicants

3. The sibling definition has been amended to reflect the commonly used definition across Richmond Borough.

A copy of the proposed policy and supporting Supplementary Foundation Information and Ministerial Reference Forms can be found below. If you would like a paper copy, please email khindle@christs.richmond.sch.uk to request.

The consultation period is six weeks. If you would like to make a comment in support or against this proposal, please write to our Admissions Officer, Karen Hindle, at the school address or email khindle@christs.richmond.sch.uk by Thursday 31 January 2019, 5pm, which is the closing date for receipt of comments.

Following this date, the Governing Body will consider all comments and finalise the determined admissions arrangements for 2020/21.
