Proposed Change to Admissions Criteria for Westdale Junior School 2025-2026

Every year schools and academies are required to review their admission arrangements. The aim is to ensure that the arrangements continue to be appropriate, and that they comply with all the relevant requirements.

It has been agreed that Westdale Junior School which is part of the NOVA Education Trust would consult on amending the existing admission arrangements.

The proposed changes would amend the oversubscription criteria to add the following point:

Children whose parent is an employee of Westdale Junior School and has been employed for two or more years at the time at which the application for submission to the school is made, or the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.

The consultation will run from 17th November 2023 until 29th December 2023. Parents and Carers are particularly welcome to comment on the proposed change to the admission arrangements for 2025/26. Please send your comments only relating to the changes in the section of the admission criteria detailed above to Miss R Kyle at the address above or email Responses will be considered with the final published admissions arrangements published by the 28th February.
