CONSULTATION ON PROPOSED CHANGE TO ADMISSION ARRANGEMENTS

FOR SAWLEY JUNIOR SCHOOL

 

The trustees of ONE Academy Trust are consulting on proposed changes to the admissions arrangements for Sawley Junior School.

The proposed changes would take effect for admissions in 2025/2026.

The changes to the policy are:

  1. The change of Admissions Authority to ONE Academy Trust due to the merger of the former Believe Academy Trust and the Willows Academy Trust and the associated name change to ONE Academy Trust.
  2. A reformatting of the admissions policy and arrangements to provide a common format across ONE Academy Trust schools and to ensure clarity of the statutory Fair Access Protocols that apply to admissions.      

All other criteria and priorities remain in line with the current published admissions arrangements for Sawley Junior School.

The admissions arrangements for Sawley Junior School are available here on our school website.  Copies are available on request.

The consultation will run from Monday 20th November 2023 to Monday 8th January 2024.

If you wish to comment on the proposed changes please contact: info@sawley-jun.derbyshire.sch.uk

After the consultation period, all responses will be considered by the Board of Trustees in their role as the admissions authority for the schools in ONE Academy Trust. 

The outcome of the consultation will be notified to all parents/carers and anyone who has submitted comments, and posted on the Sawley Junior School and ONE Academy Trust websites by the end of February 2024.
