Tudor Grange Admissions Policy
Stop them from taking our school away from our children. Protect our children's future.
TUDOR GRANGE ACADEMY are proposing changes to their admissions policy which will result in children within the catchment area NOT being offered a place. From 2014 up to 130 places (over half of their allocated places) will be automatically offered to children attending St James or St Alphege, both Faith schools, in preference to children within the catchment area. The remaining places will be allocated in order of priority to;
1 - Children in the catchment area
2 - Children with siblings at the school
3 - Children closest to Tudor Grange but outside the catchment area.
This means that being in the catchment area no longer guarantees your child a place. This has been done very discreetly - just a page on their website!
This change of policy will also impact other schools within the borough. Where are the rest of the catchment children going to go? It could also impact house prices within the Tudor Grange catchment area as this has always been a selling point to potential buyers.
Have your say and please join our petition.
In addition, please email your thoughts to Tudor Grange so they can be 'considered' in their consultation process. The email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
All responses need to be received by Thursday 28th February.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
