Why we are consulting
We have a statutory duty to consult on admission arrangements if we intend to make a change.
The change being proposed is as follows:
Children of members of staff in Hardwick Primary School are placed as 3rd on the list for over subscription criteria as follows:
1. Children who are looked after by a local authority, within the meaning of Part 1 of the Children and Families Act 2014 at the time of their application and previously looked after children. The term 'previously looked after children' refers only to children who were looked after but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a child arrangement order or special guardianship order).
2. Disabled children who need to be admitted to a school on the grounds of physical accessibility. The definition of disability is that contained within the Equalities Act 2010, Part 2.
3. Children of members of staff in Hardwick Primary School. In accordance with the Admissions Code of Practice, 2014, 1.39, the school defines 'staff' as full or part-time teaching members of staff with a minimum of 2 consecutive years working at the school, or a teacher recruited to fulfill a vacancy with a demonstrable skill shortage.
4. Children who live in the school's designated area. If there are more applicants than places in this category priority will be given in the following descending order: (following Oxfordshire County Council's order – see in full policy)
How can I respond to the consultation?
This consultation will run for 6 weeks from Monday 23rd November 2020 until Monday 18th January 2021. Responses may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Ferriston, Banbury, OX16 1XE
What happens next?
After the closing date, responses will be collated and presented to the GLF Trust Board. The Board will decide whether to proceed with the proposed changes and determine the admission arrangements for the school. Once approved, the admissions arrangements will be published on the school website www.hardwickschool.org
