Admissions Consultation for 2020/2021

Proposed Admission Arrangements and Admission Arrangements for the offer year 2020/2021

Proposal to change the admission rules and arrangements for the academic year 2020-2021. The River Learning Trust intends to:

  1. Insert a new rule 2 for children previously looked after outside England following a recommendation from the DfE to all Admission Authorities to adopt this rule.

  2. The catchment category has been changed so that it is not (a) siblings and (b) other catchments now. These have been separated and expanded to take account of children attending a partnership (feeder) school as well.

  3. The sibling category has been expanded for siblings + feeder and siblings only.

  4. Distance from school to home will be measured using a straight line from 2020/2021 with the end point being the main reception at Wheatley Park School.

  5. Finally, please note that the Admission Number remains at 180.

This consultation will run from the Monday 3rd December 2018 to Monday 14th January 2019. Should you wish to respond to this consultation please contact Maddy Pallant by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
