Consultation on Admission Arrangements for Cardinal Hume Catholic School 2019/20

Policy-Changes

Secondary Admission Policy 2019/2020

The Governing Body wishes to make a change to its Admissions Policy that requires public consultation. The change would come into force in the Admissions Policy for the 2019/20 school year and would therefore affect applications for entry in September 2019 and subsequent years.

There is no change to our policy for the 2018 admissions round which is currently in progress.

Our consultation period is between 4th December 2017 – 22nd January 2018. You are invited to provide your views and comments on any aspect of the proposed school admission arrangements.

Main Proposed Changes to Secondary Admission Policy:

  1. Looked after children category has been spilt into two separate categories ‘Catholic looked after children and previously looked after children’ (Category A) and ‘Other looked after children and previously looked after children’ (Category E).
  1. A new Category F has been added ‘Catechumens and members of an Eastern Christian Church’.
  1. A new Category L has been added ‘Children of another Christian denomination whose membership is evidenced by a minister or faith leader who do not live within the catchment area’.

Main Proposed Changes to Sixth Form Policy:

  1. Looked after children category has been spilt into two separate categories ‘Catholic looked after children and previously looked after children’ (Category A) and ‘Other looked after children and previously looked after children’ (Category D).
  1. A new Category E has been added ‘Catechumens and members of an Eastern Christian Church’.

All responses must be made in writing and a Consultation Response form is available below. Please return any comments to school for the attention of Mrs Grainger, School Admissions Officer.

The closing date for consultation is 22nd January 2018.

Responses will be considered by the Governing Body and any changes they agree, if any, will be determined by no later than 28th February 2018. Once determined the final admission arrangements will be published on the school website and Gateshead Council website on 15th March 2018.
