Proposed admission arrangements academic year 2014-15 for all community and voluntary controlled schools in South Gloucestershire academic year 2014-15


This consultation is now complete and the determined scheme and criteria are available to read towards the bottom of this page.

South Gloucestershire Council is consulting on the admission to school arrangements which will apply in September 2014-15. 

These arrangements are likely to be of particular interest to parents/carers of children starting school for the first time in September 2014 or are moving from primary to secondary school at that time. 

  • Children born between 1 September 2009 and 31 August 2010 will be eligible to start school in September 2014.
  • Children born between 1 September 2002 and 31 August 2003 will be eligible to transfer from primary to secondary school in September 2014. 

The proposed school admission arrangements may also be of interest to pre-school groups and providers and to community groups involving parents and carers. 

Admission arrangements are particularly important in setting out the rules which will be followed in allocating school places if any school receives more applications than there are places available. 

The oversubscription criteria for 2014-15 for community and controlled primary and secondary schools remain substantively the same as those approved for 2013-14.

The deadline for any comments is 1 March 2013. 

The admission arrangements for schools in September 2014, when decided, will be published in the admission booklets for parents to be issued in September 2013.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
