Reduction to admission numbers

In 2017, our pupil admission numbers increased, from 30, to 45 places in response to a request from the Local Authority.


We sought to decrease our pupil admission numbers following a school placements meeting with the Local Authority, data shows a decrease in the birth rate meaning less demand for school places. 


Following our request to the Local Authority to reduce our intake back to 30 in September 2023, there was a consultation period and it was agreed this could happen.


This has started with the reception class intake in 2023.  All other year groups remain at 45.
