Consultation on proposed changes to Admission Arrangements

Consultation on proposed changes to the Admissions Arrangements for Waddesdon Church of England School to take effect from the beginning of the academic year 2023 – 2024.

Every year the admission authority for all schools and academies are required to review their admission arrangements. The aim is to ensure that the arrangements continue to be appropriate, and that they comply with all the relevant requirements. The admission authority must consult on proposed changes to the admission arrangements.

The admission authority for Waddesdon School is its Governing Body. Between 1 October 2021 and 12 November 2021, the Governing Body is consulting on proposed changes to the school’s admission arrangements which would take effect from the beginning of the academic year 2023 to 2024.

The proposed changes are:

  • minor additions to the catchment area which have been requested by Buckinghamshire Council to ensure that all properties in the County have a catchment school
  • inclusion of wording to state the normal age for admission to the Sixth Form and the procedure for applications for a place for children out of their normal age group
  • the addition of a supplementary information form to assist in the verification of catchment addresses

The Governing Body invites comments on the proposed changes. Please send your comments to Nicki Logan, Clerk to the Governing Body, Waddesdon C of E School, School Lane, Waddesdon HP18 0LQ, or email clerk@waddesdonschool.com by 12 November 2021.
