Proposed Admission Arrangement
The admission authority would also like to consult on a change to the over subscription
criteria for all of the above schools. The proposal is to add an additional criteria of:

The children of staff in the following circumstances:
● where the member of staff has been employed for 2 or more years at the time
at which the application for admission to the school is made; and/or
● the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a
demonstrable skill shortage.

The proposed admissions policy reflecting the above change can be viewed using the link below.

We are also consulting on the admissions policy for our Post 16 at Outwood Grange
Academy and Outwood Academy Hemsworth. It is not proposed to change the admission number, entry requirements of over subscription criteria from previous years.
Please find below the link to the proposed sixth form admissions policy.
