Consulting on proposed admission arrangements for 2025/2026

Northmead Junior School is formally consulting on its proposed admission arrangements for 2025/2026. Please find attached the proposed Admission Policy and Supplementary Information form for staff.

The changes being proposed are:

·       Addition of a staff priority (criterion 5 on new policy) including a supplementary form

·       Removal of criterion 5 (old policy) children living in the Stoughton Ward. This will be replaced with a new criterion 5 - Any other children, prioritised according to the distance they live from the school. All distances will be measured in a straight line from the home address to the school gate, using an ordnance survey tool.

·       Changes to criterion 3 (siblings) when an applicant is applying for a Year 3 place and the child has a sibling currently attending Year 6 but who will have left by the time the younger child starts, the younger child will be considered under the sibling criterion as part of the initial allocation (providing an application has been made for Year 3 at Northmead Junior School)

The consultation period will run for six weeks from Monday 11th December 2023 to Sunday 21st January 2024. Anyone wishing to submit their views should email the school to, marking their email subject as Admission Consultation. Alternatively, responses can be made in writing and posted to the address below.

 After the closing date, responses will be collated and presented to the Full Governing Body of the school for decision and ratification.
