CONSULTATION ON ADMISSIONS POLICY 2023-24
The Governing Body of Newlands CofE School Federation is formally consulting on proposed admissions arrangements for 2023 admission to Year 3 at Clandon CofE Primary School.
As a Voluntary Aided school, the Governors are the Admission Authority and have agreed with the Local Authority, a Published Admission Number (PAN) of 15 at Reception and a PAN of 2 at Year 3, with priority at Year 3 being given to children attending Shere CofE Infant School.
The PAN of 2 at Year 3 will be in addition to children already attending Clandon CofE Primary School in Year 2, who will be moving up to Year 3.
The reason for this proposed change is as follows:
Following federation with Shere CofE Infant School and Nursery in April 2021, parents of pupils in Year 2 at Shere would like the option to apply for a junior school place at Clandon CofE Primary School. This would provide the opportunity for children from Shere to continue their education in a similar small, village, Church of England school.
You will find below the Admissions Policy for 2023-24 and associated Supplementary Information Form, as well as the letter circulated with this consultation to interested parties.
