Welton CE Academy is a Church of England academy within the David Ross Education Trust.
WELTON CE ACADEMY– ADMISSIONS POLICY FOR ACADEMIC YEAR 2021 – 2022 : ADMISSIONS POLICY CONSULTATION
Welton Church of England Academy is consulting on the Academy’s admission arrangements. These arrangements are for students who will be starting in September 2021.
The consultation is taking place for a period of six weeks, between Monday 11 November 2019 – Friday 20 December 2019.
Consultation will also be undertaken via Northamptonshire County Council’s (NCC) co-ordinated consultation process and will be on the NCC School Admissions Consultation website from the start of the consultation period.
Why are we consulting?
The Trust must set (‘determine’) admission arrangements annually. Where changes are proposed to admission arrangements, the Trust must first publicly consult on those arrangements. If no changes are made to admission arrangements, they must be consulted on at least once every 7 years.
Welton Church of England Academy is not proposing any changes to its admissions arrangements for 2021 however is consulting in accordance with the requirement to consult on a 7 year cycle.
You are invited to review the admission arrangements and to ask yourself the following questions:
are the arrangements reasonable?
are the arrangements clear?
are the arrangements objective?
do the arrangements comply with the school admissions code 2014 and the school admissions appeals code 2012, and the laws and regulations behind them?
will the arrangements cause disadvantage or discrimination?
could changes be made that would improve the arrangements?
Responses to this consultation should be sent to either DRETadmissions@dret.co.uk or submitted via Northamptonshire County Council School Admissions Consultation website. The closing data for responses is Friday 20 December 2019.
On conclusion of the Consultation all responses received will be collated and presented to the Trust Board in February 2020 for full consideration. The outcome of the Consultation will be posted on the Academy’s website along with the final admissions policy for 2021.
At present, Northamptonshire County Council is the Admissions Authority for the academy. NCC is responsible for accepting admission applications for all year groups via their website: www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/admissions
