Admissions Consultation 2023 Entry – East Crompton St George’s CE Primary School

The Cranmer Education Trust is proposing to amend the admissions arrangements for September 2023 entry into East Crompton St George’s Primary School by reducing the Published Admissions Number (PAN) to 30.

The reason is the Local Authority data shows that the number of children requiring Reception places in the Royton and Shaw area has reduced and therefore additional capacity is no longer required.

The policy is otherwise unchanged and can be found below:

Admissions Policy for East Crompton St George’s Primary School – Entry 2023 – For Consultation

The school will increase its PAN when pupil numbers in the locality increase.

The consultation period opens on Tuesday, 9th November 2021 and closes on Tuesday, 21st December 2021 at 3.30pm.

Comments and representations on the proposals are welcomed and should be sent either by e-mail or letter to:

Chair of the Local Governing Committee of East Crompton St George’s Primary School,

Admissions Consultation 2023 Entry – The Blue Coat School and The Brian Clarke CE Academy – Not Yet Open

The Cranmer Education Trust are proposing to amend the admission arrangements for September 2023 entry into The Blue Coat School and The Brian Clarke CE Academy and are consulting with parents and other interested parties.

For Blue Coat, the policy changes relate to the reopening of Churches, in line with Government and Diocesan policy and the resumption of counting attendance at public worship as part of the over-subscription criteria from 31st October, 2021 for Christian applicants. The revised policy and supplementary information form ensure that families who may be affected by temporary or partial Church closures are not disadvantaged.  The policy already includes provision for individual exceptional circumstances.

For Brian Clarke, the policy changes as well as counting attendance (as above) also relate to the inclusion of siblings.

The consultation period opens on Monday, 1st November, 2021 and closes on Monday, 13th December, 2021 at 3.30pm.

The proposed admissions policies and supplementary forms can be found below:
