Consultation on changes to the Admission Policy for 2020

The local advisory committee have consulted with stakeholders on proposals to change the oversubscription criteria for admission in 2020/2021.

The local advisory committee received three responses to the proposals, following careful consideration of the responses the local advisory committee resolved to adopt the proposed changes for the following reasons.

  1. The vision of the Oak Trust is to provide seamless education through shared learning, therefore, partner schools within the geographical priority area will attract a higher priority in the oversubscription criteria. The schools currently in the Oak Trust are Fir Bank Primary School and Thorp Primary School.
  2. That due to the difficulties in recruiting staff, the criteria changes would be an incentive to prospective applicants.
  3. The school has increased its pupil admission number by 30 students providing for an intake of 270 students in 2020/2021.
