The Multi Academy Trust (MAT) Board of Yavneh College Academy Trust is currently considering revisions to the admission arrangements for entry into Yavneh College (the “School”) in September 2019. As determined by the School Admissions Code and The School Admissions (Admission Arrangements and Co-ordination of Admission Arrangements) (England) Regulations 2012 we are required to consult with you.
The first proposed change is to remove former siblings from the definition of siblings for both entry into Year 7 and the Sixth Form, so that only applicants who have another child on the School roll, at 1 September 2019, will be considered as a priority applicant under the sibling over-subscription criterion.
The Trustees are proposing this change as they wish to ensure that children who would be eligible for a place at the School are not deprived of one because of a place going to a child under the sibling over-subscription criterion, when they no longer have a sibling in the School. For the avoidance of doubt, we are only consulting on removing former siblings – the sibling over-subscription criterion will otherwise remain the same.
The Trustees are also proposing changes to the academic requirements for entry into the Sixth Form to take into account the various options available and the new grading structure for GSCEs.
If you have any comments on the proposed changes to our admission arrangements, please write to Mrs Fiona Graham at the following email address firstname.lastname@example.org before the end date of the consultation, which is 26 January 2018.
No other changes to the admissions arrangements are proposed.
Comments are not sought on any part of the School’s admission arrangements where changes are not proposed. Any comments made on other parts of the School’s admission arrangements will not be taken into account in the consultation.
