Admissions Consultation

The Governors would like to amend the Leathersellers' Federation of Schools admissions policies effective from September 2019.

The consultation schedule is as follows:

Consultation period

Wednesday 13th December 2017 to Wednesday 24th January 2018

Policy determined

By 28th February 2018

Policy published

By 15th March 2018

Objections to arrangements must be referred to the Schools Adjudicator

By 15th May 2018

The consultation is on the proposed changes to the admission policies of Prendergast Ladywell School (including its primary phase, Prendergast Primary School), Prendergast Vale School (including the primary phase of Prendergast Vale School) and Prendergast School as reflected in the consultation policy documents which are available on this page. The Governing Board is consulting with parents, carers and guardians of students at each of the schools in the Leathersellers’ Federation including parents of preschool children from age 2, relevant community groups who use our sites, staff, professional associations and unions.

In summary these are that:

  • to ensure that Prendergast Ladywell School is able to consolidate the school structure to serve 180 pupils at entry in to Year 7 in its secondary phase;
  • to confirm the priority entitlement of all Year 11 pupils in Prendergast Ladywell School, Prendergast School and Prendergast Vale School to Prendergast School Sixth Form College;
  • to give clarity to the Governors arrangements for receiving requests from parents for admission of children outside the normal age group;
  • to confirm the admission priority of children of staff who have worked for the Leathersellers' Federation of Schools for at least two years;
  • to raise the PAN of Prendergast School Sixth Form so that the admission number of the sixth form provision is 160 students plus the roll number of year 11 students of Prendergast School.

Parents and other respondents should read the attached policies to advise themselves of the detail of the policies under consultation together with the other documents set out on this page.
