School admissions arrangements for 2020 - 2021

Determined admission arrangements for Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools for 2020/2021

We're the admissions authority for all community and voluntary controlled schools. This means we're responsible for admissions to the school. Part of this responsibility includes consulting with relevant parties where changes are proposed and determining the admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools each year.

Following approval by Executive delegate decision, the admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools (PDF 57.4KB) have been determined.

Please note the following changes:

  • inclusion of 'children of staff' priority for admission criteria to Dunstable Icknield Lower School; Fairfield Park Lower School; Greenleas School; Heathwood Lower School; Shefford Lower School; Southcott Lower School; and Thomas Johnson Lower School

  • reduction of the published admission number at Linslade Lower School from 45 to 30
