There is a consultation taking place at the moment to limit the number of feeder school places that are given to Akiva. This means that Akiva children will not automatically get a place at JCOSS unless they already have a sibling there, but will have higher priority than other Jewish children. (it is a very complicated system with variable percentages in play).
Analysis for 2014 applications/September 2015 entry is that its likely that the majority, but not all, will be offered places in the first round, but that a handful are likely to miss out and they will then be dependent on others not taking up their offers, for example because some children will take up a place at a private school.
In future years JCOSS are retaining the right to amend the feeder % downwards which bodes even less well for Akiva kids.
The proposed changes can be seen herehttp://www.jcoss.org/assets/JCoSS-Admissions-Policy-2015-16-FINAL-PROPOSAL.pdf
We want to keep Akiva as a full quota feeder school to JCOSS.
We are the only feeder school without another feeder in close geographical proximity. And we share the same ideals as JCOSS and our children are valuable assets to the JCOSS community.
