COVID-19 ADMISSIONS CHANGES
Due to the lockdown during the Coronavirus pandemic in 2020 a request has been filed with the Schools Adjudicator to approve the changing of the the church attendance requirement related to Foundation places.
The text of the proposed change is as follows:
"In the event that during the period specified for attendance at worship the church [or, in relation to those of other faiths, relevant place of worship] 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 in relation to those of other faiths, relevant place of worship] or alternative premises have been available for public worship."
As soon as this proposed amendment has been approved the published criteria and Supplementary Information Forms on this website will be updated accordingly.
Contingency Planning Covid-19
In line with the advice from the UK government on gatherings and social distancing, appeal hearings will take place remotely.
The general consensus is for Independent Admission Appeal Panels to consider all appeals based on the written evidence submitted by both parties in the absence of both parties (school and parent/carer).
Due to the restriction of public gatherings the following contingency plan has been put in place for the running of admission appeals:
- To review written cases from all parties.
- Should the occasion arise when the Panel require clarification on any point/s the clerk will contact either the school or parent/carer.
- The Panel will make decisions based on written evidence.
In order for the above to be effective, it is vital that all contact numbers either landline or mobile are current, and the relevant named person (applicant parent/carer) is available during the time of the scheduled hearing.
