Admission Policies and Consultation
Community/Voluntary Controlled Schools
Wakefield Council is consulting on its School Admissions Policy for all Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools within the Wakefield District.
There are no proposed changes to the School Admissions Policy and it is the Council's intention that the agreed School Admissions Policy for 2020/2021 will be 'rolled over' for 2021/2022 school year.
THIS CONSULTATION HAS NOW CLOSED
Proposed published admission numbers
Proposed changes to published admission numbers are attached to this page.
Academies and Voluntary Academies
The Governing Body of these schools are the Admission Authority and do not have to follow the Local Authority's Admissions Policy although a number of Trust Schools and Academies do adopt the Local Authority's Admissions Policy.
If an academy proposes any changes to its Admissions Policy the Governing Body will also have to undertake a six week consultation period that has to be finished by 31 January 2020.
Details of each academy's Admissions Policy and any changes they are making for 2021/2022 will be available on their website. The proposed Admission Policies for these schools will also be attached to this page as we receive them from each school.
Voluntary Aided (Church) Schools, Foundation School and the Education Ossett Community Trust Schools
These schools also set their own admission arrangements.
Any changes to their Admissions Policies will also have a six week consultation period that has to be finished by 31 January 2020.
Details of each school's admissions policy and any changes they are making for 2021/2022 will be available on the school's website.
You should respond to any proposed changes to the school itself by the date specified in their consultation notice.
Once the consultations are completed all admission authorities will determine their admission arrangements for 2021/2022 by 28 February 2020.
