Draft Admissions Arrangements Crofty MAT 24-25

Consultation on proposed changes to The Crofty Multi Academy Trust’s Admissions Arrangements

Crofty Multi Academy Trust is reviewing its schools’ admissions arrangements for the year 2024-25. The arrangements have been updated to reflect the new schools which are joining our Trust (Garras ,Godolphin, Halwin, Parc Eglos, Porthleven, Sithney and Trannack), with an amendment to the oversubscription criteria for these schools (see point 1)

There is also the addition of an oversubscription criteria for our existing schools (Illogan, Lanner, Pencoys, Pennoweth, Portreath, Rosemellin, Roskear, Treloweth and Weeth – see point 2).

There are two changes proposed in our 2024-25 admissions arrangements, which are:

1. A change in the order of the oversubscription criteria for children with siblings who will still be attending the school at the time of their admission.

2. The addition to the oversubscription criteria of Children of Staff

We are consulting on the proposal of changing the order of the oversubscription criteria for children with siblings who will still be attending the school at the time of their admission. For Garras ,Godolphin, Halwin, Parc Eglos, Porthleven, Sithney and Trannack this will move the criteria from second to fourth place. This will mean that siblings within the designated area will have priority over siblings from outside of the school’s designated area.
This aligns these schools with the existing arrangements for Crofty schools.

We are also consulting on the proposal to add an additional criteria for Illogan, Lanner, Pencoys, Pennoweth, Portreath, Rosemellin, Roskear, Treloweth and Weeth. This additional criteria gives priority to children of staff in certain circumstances and ensures all schools in Crofty trust share the same oversubscription criteria.

The proposed arrangements with the changes highlighted are in the attached draft admissions policy, and the information can also be found on the Trust website here. We openly invite comments from all stakeholders on these proposed admission arrangements in accordance with the School Admissions Code. The six week consultation period begins on Friday 16 December 2022 and will end on Friday 27 January 2023.

You can submit your comments by emailing admin@croftymat.org or writing to the Company Secretary at Unit 2 The Setons, Tolvaddon Business Park, Camborne, Cornwall, TR14 0HX
Please use the reference ‘Consultation Admission Arrangements 24-25’ as your subject heading. Comments are invited by the close of the school day on 26 January 2023. We will, in due course, provide feedback on this consultation. If no feedback is provided, please assume that no objections have been brought to our attention.

If you have any queries about the changes to arrangements, or the process, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Responsibility for admissions

The Trustees of Crofty Multi Academy Trust have responsibility for approval of the Admissions Policy and admissions arrangements for all member schools within the Trust. They will operate an admissions policy which ensures that all applications for admission to Crofty MAT academies are dealt with in accordance with the requirements of the School Admissions and Appeals Codes, including the application of an agreed set of published oversubscription criteria and, where appropriate, adherence to Cornwall Council’s coordinated admissions schemes.

All decisions regarding admission to each academy are the responsibility of Crofty MAT. However, it should be noted that Cornwall Council has a statutory duty to co-ordinate the admissions process for reception class applications. In addition, Cornwall Council has opted to assist parents by acting as a “clearing house” for applications to other school year groups.

Crofty MAT schools will participate fully in the Local Authority’s Fair Access Protocol and the Local Authority’s Co-ordinated Admissions Schemes. Details of these schemes are available on the Council’s website (www.cornwall.gov.uk/admissions) or on request from the Local Authority. Closing dates and
other details about the application process will be stated in those Schemes.

Details of the co-ordinated admissions scheme for Reception admissions are available from Cornwall Council School Admissions Team, New County Hall, Truro, TR1 3AY

Telephone: 0300 1234 101

Closing dates, deadlines and timescales (including those relating to late applications) will be as stated in those schemes.
