Admissions Consultation

Bure Valley School is consulting on proposed admission arrangements for the school from September 2019 and the criteria the school will follow. The consultation will close on Friday 9 February 2018. Following the consultation the agreed admission arrangements will be given to Norfolk County Council. The main change is the higher priority given to children with a brother or sister attending the school at the time of admission regardless of where they live.

The proposed admission arrangements are as follows;

  1. Children with an ECHP or statement of special educational needs naming the school.
  2. Children who are in public care or who have been adopted from public care who are due to transfer.
  3. Children with a brother or sister attending the school at the time of admission.   Our definition of siblings – ‘brother’ or ‘sister’ means: brothers or sisters living at the same address including adopted children, step-brothers, step-sisters and children in foster care within a family unit.
  4. Children who are eligible to transfer and live in the area served by the school who do not have a brother or sister at the school. The ‘area served by the school’ is defined as the area that makes up the catchment areas of the following schools and therefore The Aylsham Cluster of Schools:
    • John of Gaunt Infant and Nursery
    • St Michael’s CofE VC Nursery and Infant
  1. Children who attend one of the above but live outside the catchment.
  2. Children who live outside the catchment, based on proximity of the child’s home to each applicable school, with those living nearer being accorded the higher priority.

If all children within any of the above rules cannot be offered a place, the highest priority will be given to children living nearest to the applicable school within that rule.  To determine who lives nearest, distance will be measured on a straight line “crow fly” basis, using Ordnance Survey data.  The address will be measured from the post office address point on the property.  In the unlikely event that distance does not separate the final two or more pupils/students seeking the last remaining place, a random allocation will be used to determine who is offered the final place.

Parents/carers may appeal to the Admissions Authority against a decision not to admit a child.  As a Foundation school the Governing Board is the Admissions Authority.  The Governing Board will use the LA appeals procedure for any admissions appeal.

You should contact jtuttle@aylshamhigh.norfolk.sch.uk to make any response to the consultation or to ask any questions, or contact Jo Tuttle on 01263 733270.
