Have your say on proposed changes to some Lambeth Community Schools admissions policy and arrangements for 2022/2023 entry

Open date: Monday, 7 December 2020 at 9.00am Close date: Sunday, 17 January 2021 at 11.00pm Type: Consultation Neighbourhood: Lambeth wide Category:
  • Schools and education

We want your views on proposed changes to the admissions policy and arrangements for 2022/2023 entry for some schools in the borough. Share your views by completing our survey. The consultation runs from 7 December 2020 to 17 January 2021. Have your say now.

The School Admissions Code 2014 requires schools, or the Local Authority for community schools, to formally consult with the public regarding changes to their admissions criteria arrangements. This would include admissions criteria and decreases to the Published Admissions Number (PAN). If no changes are made, there is a requirement that schools consult every seven years.

The changes proposed for Lambeth community schools are the formal reductions in PAN for the following schools from the 2022/23 academic year. The proposal regarding primary schools is part of a wider undertaking by the council to reduce PANs due to falling population across the borough.

Please see list of schools below who have agreed to reduce the number of Reception places:

School 2021/22 previous 2022/23 revised
Allen Edwards Primary 60 45
Crown Lane Primary 60 30
Fenstanton Primary 60 45
Hill Mead Primary 60 30
Jessop Primary 60 45
Jubilee Primary 60 45
Lark Hall Primary 60 45
Loughborough Primary 60 30
Kingswood Primary 90 60
Richard Atkins Primary 45 30
Sudbourne Primary 90 45
Woodmansterne (primary phase) 120 90
Year 7 PAN changes:    
Woodmansterne (secondary phase) 90 (due to rising yr 6 intake) 30

There are no changes proposed to the existing admissions criteria or main admissions processes for Lambeth community primary schools (and Oasis Academy Johanna, on behalf of Oasis Community Learning), nor Woodmansterne School (both phases). Changes have been made for Lilian Baylis Technology School and The Norwood School Year 7 entry to re-instate the ability banding that was removed via a variation for 2021/22 entry, due to public health concerns.
