The Trustees of Elston Hall Learning Trust are consulting on changes to admissions arrangements for Wolverhampton and Walsall Schools. The consultation will run from 14 November 2022 and will conclude on 9 January 2023.
These arrangements will apply for pupils who will be starting primary school in September 2024, or those requesting admission to the schools in the Trust from September 2024 onwards.
The proposed arrangements includes changes to those agreed for previous academic years. These proposed arrangements include an amendment of the Trust’s oversubscription criteria to include:
Criteria 4 - Children of staff at the school
The Admissions code states that Admission authorities may give priority in their oversubscription criteria to children of staff in either or both of the following circumstances: a) where the member of staff has been employed at the school for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made; and/or b) the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post at the school for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.
The Trust intends to include this oversubscription criteria into its existing criteria. Please note this is the only amendment being proposed by the Trust to its admission arrangements.
In accordance with the Admissions Code, Elston Hall Learning Trust would like to hear the views of the parents, carers, local community and colleagues in Wolverhampton, Walsall, and neighbouring authorities.
