Admission Arrangements for Community and Voluntary-Controlled Schools 2023/24

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Cornwall Council is the ‘admission authority’ for community and voluntary-controlled schools which means it is responsible for admissions to those schools. The Council must agree the admission arrangements for those schools annually by 28 February. This includes the oversubscription criteria (how places will be allocated if there are more applications than places available) and the Published Admission Number or PAN (the number of pupils that the school will admit).

Cornwall Council is undertaking statutory consultation, in line with the Admissions Code 2021, on the arrangements for community and voluntary-controlled schools for 2023/24. We are consulting with parents and carers, schools and other relevant parties.

Comments are invited on any aspect of the arrangements including the proposed changes which are explained here:

Change to oversubscription criteria – Richard Lander School

It is proposed to add children of paid staff to the oversubscription criteria for Richard Lander School. The oversubscription criteria is used to decide who should get places when there are more applications than places available. You can see where this would be added in the draft arrangements shared as part of this consultation.

Changes to Published Admission Numbers

A reduction in the Published Admission Numbers for two primary schools (the number of pupils that they will admit up to in reception for 2023 entry) is proposed. The reductions are to support more efficient class organisation and planning and are at the request of the schools, supported by the Local Authority.

  • Torpoint Infant and Nursery School - reduction from 120 to 100
  • Carbeile Junior School - reduction from 120 to 100

No other changes are proposed.

The draft arrangements can be viewed on our website (www.cornwall.gov.uk/admissions) or you can request a copy by emailing us (schooladmissions@cornwall.gov.uk) or by calling us (0300 1234 101).
