05/03/2018 - ADMISSION ARRANGEMENTS FOR COMMUNITY AND VOLUNTARY CONTROLLED PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS AND THE COORDINATED ADMISSION SCHEMES FOR 2019-2020
Councillor Bernie Mooney, Cabinet Member – Children and Families, said:
“Making sure your child gets into the right school is incredibly important for every family in the borough. It is important we have a fair, equitable policy to determine school admission arrangements.
This report provides the borough with a policy for the 2019/20 academic year”.
Councillor Bernie Mooney introduced a report, which invited the Cabinet to determine the Authority’s admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled primary and secondary schools and the co-ordinated schemes for 2019-2020.
The Authority was required to determine admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled primary and secondary schools. The New School Admissions (England) Regulations (2003) also required the Authority to have in place a coordinated scheme for admissions to all primary and secondary schools including Academy schools, in 2019-20. The proposed schemes were attached as appendices to the report along with proposed admission numbers for community and controlled schools.
RESOLVED: That the proposed admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools and the Wirral co-ordinated schemes for 2019-2020, be agreed.
