Consultation on Proposed Admissions Policy for 2020/21 Academic Year 

Consultation is now taking place on the admission arrangements for Tardebigge First School for the 2020/21 Academic Year. The proposed policy can be found here.

The main change to the policy is as follows. The Minister of State for School Standards has requested that admission authorities consult on giving priority in the oversubscription criteria to children who have previously been in state care outside of England, and have ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted. The Governing Body as Admissions Authority for Tardebigge First School is proposing to include this as a new criterion b in the 2020/21 policy.

Anyone wishing to comment on the proposed policy should put their comments in writing addressed to the Governing Body via the School Office (email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by 7th December 2018.
