Local Authority School Admissions Consultation

posted 6 Jan 2012, 05:06 by Unknown user   [ updated 6 Jan 2012, 05:17 ]

Hertfordshire County Council is running a consultation on the proposed admissions arrangements for the school year 2013/14 and is seeking response from parents/cares, schools and community groups.  The main change proposed is to allow an increase in the number of preferences from three to four ie parents will be able to apply to four schools, as oppposed to only three currently.

Views are being sought on:
  1. A rule to prioritise children of school staff
  2. Amending the priority area rules and "nearest" school definitions
  3. Other proposals for the treatment of twins/multiple births, a single sec priority area and in year admissions.
The consultation period runs until 29 February 2012.  Please visit for more information and to respond online or call Mini Harish on 01992 555840 for a copy of the consultation document.
