COVID-19 Pandemic Statement July 2020:

As for many church schools, regular attendance at public worship is part of our oversubscription criteria. Due to the unique circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, churches and other places of worship have been closed for public worship.  Following guidance from the Diocese of Chichester in conjunction with the Department for Education we have requested a variation to our Admissions Policy to clarify how church attendance will be considered.

This recommended statement has therefore been added to our Admissions Policy:

In the event that during the period specified for attendance at worship the church has been closed for public worship and has not provided alternative premises for that worship, the requirements of these admissions arrangements in relation to attendance will only apply to the period when the church or alternative premises have been available for public worship.

Admissions Consultation 2021 2022: 2nd December 2019 to 13th January 2020

This consultation has now ended. 

The Governing Body would like to thank everyone who responded for their positive support for the proposed changes.  We would confirm that the Admissions Policy, as consulted on, has been finalised and will come into effect from September 2021. 

We would also like to clarify that any suggested changes to wording were not taken forward because that would require another consultation – which would delay implementation of the updated oversubscription criteria by a year.  However, comments from this consultation will be held on record to feed into any future review.
