George Pindar School is currently consulting on admission arrangements for 2023 – 24. The views of parent/carers, schools and other interested parties are being sought during this consultation.
All admission authorities must formally agree their admission arrangements every year, even if the arrangements have not changed from the previous year. When changes are proposed, a consultation has to take place, which will take the views of parents and other interested parties into account.
This year’s Admissions Consultation is being held between 8th December 2021 and 19th January 2022.
Any comments on these proposals should be addressed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Following the consultation, the admission authority (the Trust) will formally set (‘determine’) the admission arrangements for admission in 2023-24 by 28 February 2022. Determined policies will be on the school website and the Trust website by 15 March 2022 after which objections can be raised.
If you require a paper copy of the document you can request this from the school or Trust via email@example.com or 01904 560067.
The Local Authority will contact families of Year 5 children in June and provide you with information on how to apply for a secondary school place. In March of Year 6 you will be offered a place at a secondary school. At this point, George Pindar School will contact all families who have been offered a place with them for the following September.
George Pindar School usually feeds from a set catchment area that, as a general guide, includes children who live in areas served by the following schools:
