North Yorkshire County Council is consulting on a proposal to change the catchment area for Malton School. This consultation is part of the admission arrangements consultation for 2021/22 and will run from 18 October 2019 to 6 December 2019.
We would welcome your views on the proposal.
Why are we proposing a change?
Following recent discussions, it was identified that there are a number of North Yorkshire pupils that currently live in an area which is not served by a North Yorkshire school with an identifiable catchment area. It is essential that all North Yorkshire parents should have the ability to preference a North Yorkshire school. To eliminate any potential issues for North Yorkshire parents who currently live in the following parishes Barton-le-Willows, Flaxton, Harton, Claxton, Buttercrambe with Bossall, Sand Hutton, Warthill, Upper Helmsley and Gate Helmsley it is proposed that by extending the current Malton School catchment area it will address this anomaly.
Parents within this area will still be able to preference a current York School and within this proposal parents will be able to preference both Malton School as their catchment School and Huntington School as their joint catchment school.
Which school catchment areas would be affected by the proposal?
Only the school catchment area for Malton School would be affected by the proposal.
What changes are proposed?
There will be a joint catchment area for the two schools serving the North Yorkshire parishes of
- Barton-le-Willows – currently served by both school areas
- Buttercrambe with Bossall
- Sand Hutton
- Upper Helmsley
- Gate Helmsley
Maps showing the current and proposed catchment areas are included below.
When would any change become effective?
This review is part of the normal admission arrangements consultation which takes place annually. In line with the statutory requirements any approved changes would become effective for school admissions in September 2021.
Transport to schools will be provided in accordance with the Local Authority’s home to school transport policy. Full details are available at the school transport for reception to year 11 children page.
What happens next?
We would welcome your responses by the closing date of 6 December 2019.
