Grayswood Church of England (Aided) Primary School, Consultation on Admission Arrangements for 2018/2019

We are proposing two changes:
1. We intend to introduce a PAN of 2 for Admissions at Year 3. In the past, some children have left at the end of Year 2. Whereas this could be covered by In-Year applications for Year 3, we want to achieve maximum publicity for the availability of places in our Year 3.
2. We intend to change Criterion 3 on siblings. We are keen to encourage siblings applying to Grayswood but we believe that the priority should only be available if the siblings will be at Grayswood at the same time. In the 2017/18 policy, we say "children who have a brother or a sister at Grayswood school at the time of application to the school." We propose to change this in the 2018/19 policy to "children who will have at least one sibling on roll at Grayswood School at the time of admission". Furthermore, we reserve the right to withdraw the offer if the qualifying sibling is no longer on roll at the time of admission.
