  6. All other siblings
  7. All other pupils

This change requires a six-week consultation period, in line with the Admissions Code of Practice.  The consultation period is from Friday 20th November 2020 until Friday 8th January 2021 (consultation is over 6 weeks due to Christmas bank holidays).

Any comments regarding this policy must be returned by Friday 8th January 2021 and addressed to:
