Admissions

Sutton VA Lower School must adhere to the School Admissions Code which is the legislation and guidance issued by the Department for Education under Section 84 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998. The code states that admission authorities ‘…must ensure that the practices and the criteria used to decide the allocation of school places are fair, clear and objective.'  In order to meet our obligations we are currently consulting on our Admission Policy for the academic year 2019-20.  
The proposed changes to our policy are:
  • Removal of 'Very Exceptional Medical Grounds' from the Criteria for Admission
  • Tightening up of the Definition of Staff to include ' A member of staff who has had a permanent contract of employment with the school...' 
The consultation period runs from 3rd November to 5th January, if you wish to take part in this consultation please email your comments to sutton@cbc.beds.sch.uk by the end date.
