2022/23 Co-ordinated admissions arrangements

Introduction

The aim of the North Yorkshire Coordinated Primary and Secondary School Admissions Scheme is to provide an open and fair way for considering parental preferences for admission to schools. Our scheme complies with current legislation relating to school admissions and with advice contained in the Department for Education 2014 School Admissions Code.

The scheme is reviewed annually and is designed to ensure that every child living in North Yorkshire, who is due to start at a North Yorkshire primary school, or transfer to junior or secondary school, is offered a single school place on the same day.  It aims to ensure that each parental preference is considered equally and parents receive a school place in accordance with their highest ranked preference which is available. This scheme applies to admissions in the normal round but not those that take place in-year.  In-year admissions are those made during the school year and applications for admission to age groups other than the normal year of entry.

North Yorkshire Local Authority (LA) will work with Community, Voluntary Controlled, Voluntary Aided, Foundation, Trust primary and secondary schools and Academies including Free Schools within North Yorkshire, to ensure the co-ordinated scheme operates as smoothly as possible for parents and we will work closely with our thirteen neighbouring authorities to ensure admission arrangements are co-ordinated.  Our 13 neighbouring admission authorities, Voluntary Aided, Foundation, Trust schools and Academies are listed at Appendix 3 and Appendix 4.

After consideration of all parental preferences for all schools with reference to the order in which these are ranked, the LA will notify parents living within North Yorkshire of the offer of one school place on behalf of all admission authorities operating within the co-ordinated admissions scheme.

The detailed arrangements and timetables for co-ordinating school admission with the separate arrangements for secondary and primary schools can be found at Appendices 1

and 2.

Arrangements for In Year admissions can be found at page 25 of this co-ordination document.

The website includes information about:

  • The operation of our admissions schemes for all North Yorkshire Community and Voluntary

Controlled schools;

  • The timescales and timetables for each admission process;
  • The number of allocations made at each school in the previous school year;
  • The number of schools that were oversubscribed resulting in parental appeals and the numbers and outcome of these appeals. This information about allocations and appeals should help parents to assess realistically their likelihood of obtaining a place at their preferred schools.

1. The scheme does not affect the duty of the governing bodies of Academies including Free Schools, Voluntary Aided, Foundation and Trust schools to determine their own admissions policies.

2. We will receive information of children expressing preferences for our Community, Voluntary Controlled, Voluntary Aided, Foundation and Trust Schools and Academies including Free Schools from neighbouring LAs, which we will process as part of our co- ordinated arrangements along with those for North Yorkshire children.

3. Parents requesting literature on Voluntary Aided, Foundation, Trust schools or Academies including Free Schools or non-North Yorkshire schools will be referred to the appropriate school or admissions authority.  Where non-North Yorkshire parents complete our form in error, we request that parents submit a further form through their home authority.

4. We will receive complete ranked lists of all preferences from North Yorkshire Voluntary Aided, Foundation, Trust schools and Academies including Free Schools as well as lists from neighbouring Local Authorities of children to whom they can offer places. We will produce lists of children to whom we can offer places at our Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools. We will inform our neighbouring LAs which of their children can and cannot be offered places at any of our schools.

5. Having received information from other admissions authorities we will allocate places to children living in our area according to the highest ranked preference for which a place is available.

6. Where we cannot meet any of the parental preferences expressed for a North Yorkshire child we will allocate a place at an alternative school with places available after all those preferencing the school have first been allocated a place.  This may or may not be the local school and may be some distance from their home.

7. Supplementary Information Forms may need to be completed by parents applying for Voluntary Aided primary or secondary schools or Academies including Free Schools.

The number of schools as at October 2020

Secondary

North Yorkshire’s co-ordinated admissions scheme applies to 3 Voluntary Aided Secondary Schools, 16 Community Secondary schools, 23 Academies, and 1 Free School UTC

Primary

1 Foundation Primary, 87 Academy, 26 Voluntary Aided Primary Schools, 188 Voluntary Controlled and Community Primary Schools and 2 Free Schools.

We co-ordinate with 4 Diocesan Authorities and 13 Neighbouring Authorities.

On line applications for school places can be made by logging on to our website at

www.northyorks.gov.uk/primaryadmissions or www.northyorks.gov.uk/secondaryadmissions.

8.  Parents can list up to 5 schools in order of preference. Parents should consider including their local/catchment school as one of their preferences because if we are unable to meet a higher preference and their local/catchment school is oversubscribed, we will give children a place at the nearest school with places available which may be some distance from their home.

9.  If parents name a school other than their catchment area school, they will be responsible for transport under the terms of the Home to School Transport Policy.   

10. Any Common Application Form for school places received after the closing date of 31

October 2021 for secondary schools and 15 January 2022 for primary schools will be considered as a late application unless a reason has been provided that is acceptable to us as the admission authority. Late applications whose reasons have been agreed will be considered along with applications received on time.

11. Applications received on or after 1 March 2022 for secondary schools or 19 April 2022 for primary schools will be co-ordinated using the same arrangements and criteria as previous applications. The offer of a school place will be made in accordance with our agreed and published scheme. However applications received after the first day of the school year will be considered as in-year applications.

12. No changes can be made to applications for secondary schools after the 19 December

2021 and to primary applications after 21 February 2022. This includes any changes of address. Any applications received after these dates will only be processed after the allocations dates of 1 March 2022 for secondary applications and 19 April 2022 for primary applications.

13. No places will be held in reserve for any school.

14. We will contact all parents of North Yorkshire children on 1 March 2022 for Secondary Schools and on the 19 April 2022 for Primary, Infant and Junior Schools, notifying them of the single school place allocated to their child or children.

15. The place offered could be at one of our Community or Voluntary Controlled schools, Voluntary Aided, Foundation, Trust schools or Academies including Free Schools within North Yorkshire or a school in an area served by another LA.

16. Where we have been unable to offer a school place listed as a higher preference, parents will be offered the statutory right of appeal against the decision.

17. In such circumstances the offer letter or email will give the reasons why we have been unable to allocate their other stated preferences.  Where the statutory right of appeal is the responsibility of North Yorkshire LA we will inform the parents where the appeal forms can be located on the NYCC website.

18. Where the responsibility is that of another admissions authority, we will advise parents to contact them to confirm appeal arrangements.

19. Where the LA has multiple appeals for one school these will be grouped appeals unless the authority decides that this would not be appropriate.

20. Parents who have been refused a place at a North Yorkshire school by their home authority will be informed that they should contact us to discuss the appeals process.

21. The outcome of successful admission appeals will lead to further modifications to the original allocation. These changes must again be communicated to other admission authorities (and theirs to us) to enable all authorities to make final adjustments to the allocation.

22. Once appeals have been completed we will communicate with all the schools within our boundary to ensure that they have a correct and up-to-date allocation list.

23. A waiting list will be maintained for all oversubscribed Community, Voluntary Controlled, Voluntary Aided, Foundation, Trust Schools and Academies including Free Schools until 31 December 2022. Each child added will require the list to be ranked again in line with the published oversubscription criteria.

24. The LA requires the governing body of Voluntary Aided, Foundation, Trust Schools and Academies including Free Schools to update us when places become available unless the LA are maintaining the schools waiting list on their behalf.  The co-ordination regulations require that any offer of a school place must always be made by the LA.

25. Where places become available they will be allocated from the waiting list in accordance with the published oversubscription criteria.  The school admissions team will offer the place to the child at the top of the waiting list. Parents will have five working days to reply before the place is offered to another child. If North Yorkshire Council, after using all advised contact details, is unable to contact a successful applicant to offer a place, the available place will be offered to the next child who qualifies for that place from the waiting list.  The authority will confirm, in writing, that your child has been removed from the waiting list. Should you wish for your child (ren) to be placed back on the waiting list you would need to notify the LA in writing. It is the applicant’s responsibility to keep the authority informed of updated contact and address details.

26. If you change address whilst your child is on a waiting list, you need to send evidence of your new address. If your new address affects your child’s position(s) on any waiting list(s), then they will be changed accordingly.

27. Where we are able to offer a place to a non-North Yorkshire child from the waiting list we will liaise with their home authority.

28. The secondary scheme enables parents living within North Yorkshire whose children are transferring to secondary school to complete a single application either on-line or in paper form.

29. The parents of Year 6 children who will be Year 7 in September 2022 will be informed by letter via their child’s primary school that they will need to apply on-line for a school place. They can express up to 5 preferences for admission to any Community, Voluntary Controlled, Voluntary Aided, Foundation, Trust schools and Academies including Free Schools both within North Yorkshire and neighbouring LA areas, giving reasons for their preferences where appropriate.

30. Parents without internet access will be informed that they will need to contact the admissions team for a paper copy of the common application form to enable them to apply for a school place for their child.

31. Parents will be informed that supplementary information may also be requested by   Voluntary Aided, Academies including Free Schools or non-North Yorkshire schools, in order for the school to apply their oversubscription criteria.

32. Common application forms will be required for all transfers at Year 7. Applications for any other year group, apart from the normal year of entry (Year 7) will be dealt with as in-year applications.

33. Parents must return their applications by the closing date of 31 October 2021.

34. Parents will not be allowed to change their preferences after 31 October 2021 without a reason that is acceptable to the admission authority.

35. Parents who wish their children to attend independent schools will be encouraged to tell us. Independent schools are not included in the co-ordinated arrangements. These parents may also wish to apply for a place at a North Yorkshire school.

36. If parents living outside of North Yorkshire enquire about our schools they will be directed to the North Yorkshire County Council website.  Parents will be advised to complete a common application form for their home authority.

37. On the common application form parents will need to provide their child’s name and residential address. The address provided must be where the child lives permanently.  If residency is split, the address provided should be the place where the child lives for the majority of the school week (Monday to Friday). Confirmation and agreement in writing by both parents will be required.

38. The offer of a single school place will be made on 1 March 2022 and allocation emails will be sent on that date. For those who have completed a paper application or requested a letter, letters will be sent on that date by second class post.

39. We will offer a place at a North Yorkshire school even if parents have not completed a common application form because we have a duty to ensure a school place is available for every North Yorkshire child.

40. Parents who do not wish to accept a place at a school offered to them must notify the admission authority as soon as possible in writing advising the LA of the alternative provision that is being made. Without this information the place will remain allocated.

41. The timetable for secondary school admissions is attached at Appendix 1 of the Co-ordinated Admissions Arrangements, Secondary Transfer 2022/23.

42. There are 3 selective grammar schools within North Yorkshire; a Voluntary Aided boys’ school, a mixed co-educational school and a girls’ school which has Academy Trust status.

43. If a child is entered for selection testing, parents must make sure that they name the selective school they would like them to attend on the common application form.

Skipton Selection

44. Places will normally be provided at Ermysted’s Grammar School for boys who are deemed suitable for a grammar school education in accordance with the agreed selection scheme and who live in the area served by the primary schools in Beamsley, Bradley, Burnsall, Carleton, Cracoe, Embsay, Gargrave, Grassington, Kettlewell, Kirkby-in- Malhamdale, Skipton, Thornton-in-Craven and Threshfield. Ermysted’s Grammar School is a selective grammar school that offers education to boys aged 11 to 18.  Children can only be admitted to Ermysted’s Grammar School if they have been deemed suitable for a grammar school education. Further information about the tests can be obtained direct from the school.

45. The governing bodies of Ermysted’s Grammar School (Voluntary Aided) and Skipton Girls’ High School (Academy Trust) are responsible for applying their own admissions policies and the LA applies the published co-ordinated admissions arrangements on behalf of these schools.

46. Skipton Girls’ High School is a selective grammar school that offers education to girls aged 11 to 18 who are deemed suitable for a grammar school education in accordance with their selection scheme. Further information about the tests can be obtained direct from the school

47. The Skipton Academy is a non-selective Academy and Upper Wharfedale School is a non-selective secondary school in a selective area offering education for children aged 11 to 16.

Ripon Selection

48. Places will normally be provided at Outwood Academy Ripon and Ripon Grammar School for children who live in the City of Ripon together with the parishes of Aldfield, Azerley, Bishop Monkton, Bridge Hewick, Burton Leonard, Copt Hewick, Eavestone, Givendale, Grantley, Grewelthorpe, Hutton Conyers, Kirkby Malzeard, Laverton, Lindrick, with Studley Royal and Fountains, Littlethorpe, Markenfield Hall, Markington-with- Wallerthwaite, Newby-with-Mulwith, North Stainley with Sleningfird, Sawley, Sharow, Skelding, Skelton, Studley Roger and Winksley.

49. Outwood Academy Ripon is a non- selective Academy in a selective area offering education for children aged 11 to 18. Ripon Grammar School is a selective grammar school that offers an education for children aged 11 to 18. Children can only be admitted to Ripon Grammar School if they have been deemed suitable for a grammar school education, in accordance with the LA selection scheme. The LA administers both the published selection scheme and the allocation of school places at Ripon Grammar School as it is a community school.  The LA will apply the published co-ordinated admission arrangements on behalf of both Outwood Academy Ripon and Ripon Grammar School.

50. All children living and attending schools within the area served by the Ripon schools will be invited to sit the selection tests. Parents will be required to return a reply slip.

Ripon Selection Tests

51. Tests for all forms of selection must be clear and objective and give an accurate reflection of the child’s ability or aptitude, irrespective of sex, race or disability.  It is for the admission authority to decide the content of the test, providing that the test is a true test of aptitude or ability.

52. The results of these selection tests are used to identify the highest scoring 28% or as close as possible of Year 6 children who live in the Ripon selective area. This procedure sets the cut-off mark in the selective area and sets the standard which children in Ripon must reach, to be deemed suitable for grammar school education.

53. For us to consider children who live outside the selective area to be deemed suitable for a grammar school education at Ripon Grammar School they must reach the cut-off mark which is set by the performance of the children who live in the selective area, as explained above.

54. There is no guarantee that children who reach the cut-off mark in the selection tests will be allocated a place at a grammar school. If the school is oversubscribed with children who are deemed suitable for a grammar school education, places will be allocated using the published oversubscription criteria.

55. The LA ensures that parents are aware that meeting the academic requirements for entry to Ripon Grammar School is not, in itself, a guarantee of a Grammar School place.

56. If a child is refused a place at the school on 1 March 2022, parents will be offered their statutory right of appeal for a place at the school.

57. The School Admissions Code 2014 states that LAs should take all reasonable steps to inform parents of the outcome of selection tests before the closing date for secondary applications on 31 October so as to allow parents time to make an informed decision when selecting their preferences.

58. The LA must ensure that tests are accessible to children with special educational needs and disabilities, having regard to the reasonable adjustments for pupils with a disability required under equalities legislation.

Selection Testing 2022/23

59. Selection testing will take place in September 2021 and the results of selection testing will be sent out to parents on 15 October 2021.

60. Late tests will take place on designated dates during the year. There will be dates set in January for any children moving into the area or for any children where there is a genuine reason that is agreed by the LA. Any other late tests will take place in April, June and August.

61. The primary scheme enables parents living within North Yorkshire to complete a single application either on-line or in paper form listing up to five preferences for admission to any primary, infant or junior schools both within North Yorkshire and neighbouring LA areas, giving reasons for their preferences where appropriate.

62. Parents without internet access will be able to contact the LA for a common application form to enable them to apply for a primary school place for their child.

63. If parents list a Voluntary Aided school or Academy including Free Schools as a preference the school may request supplementary information in order for them to apply their oversubscription criteria.

64. Parents must return the common application forms by the deadline of 15 January 2022.

65. Parents will not be allowed to change their preferences after 15 January 2022 without a reason that is acceptable to the admission authority.

66. Parents who wish their children to attend an independent school will be encouraged to tell us. Independent schools are not included in the co-ordinated arrangements. These parents may also wish to apply for a place at a North Yorkshire school.

67. If parents living outside of North Yorkshire enquire about our schools they will be directed to the North Yorkshire County Council website.  Parents will be advised to complete a common application form for their home authority.

68. On the common application form parents will need to provide their child’s name and residential address. The address provided must be where the child lives permanently. If residency is split between two parents, the address used must be the address where the child lives for the majority of the school week (Monday to Friday). Confirmation and agreement in writing from both parents will be required.

69. For primary school applications, all offers must be made on the 19 April 2022.

70. Parents who do not wish to accept a place at a school offered to them must notify the admission authority as soon as possible in writing advising the LA of the alternative provision that is being made. Without this information the place will remain allocated.

71. The timetable for primary school admissions is attached at Appendix 2 of the Co-ordinated Admissions Arrangements, Primary Transfer 2022/23.

Co-ordination admission arrangements primary and secondary in-year admissions 2022/23

Introduction

1.     In-year admissions are those which occur outside of the normal admissions round.  The normal admissions round refers to admissions which admit children into infant, junior, primary or secondary school in the first year of entry. These applications become in-year if they are submitted on or after the first day of the first school term of the admission year.

2.     There is no requirement for LAs to co-ordinate in-year applications from the offer year

2014/15 and all subsequent years but they must provide information on their website to show how in-year applications can be made and will be dealt with.  LAs must, on request, provide information to a parent about the places available in all schools within its area.  A preference form must be completed by parents when applying for a school place for their child at any Community or Voluntary Controlled school within North Yorkshire.  A preference form will

also need to be completed for any Voluntary Aided, Foundation, Trust primary and secondary schools and Academies including Free Schools that have agreed North Yorkshire LA will continue co-ordinating in-year admissions on their behalf.  Any parent can apply for a place for their child at any time to any school.

3.     In determining applications for school places outside the normal admissions round, whether in-year or at the start of a school year which is not a normal point of entry to the school, admission authorities must comply with parental preference unless the published oversubscription criteria or one of the statutory reasons for refusing admission applies.

4.     All applications outside of the normal admissions round for Community, Voluntary Controlled and any Voluntary Aided, Foundation, Trust, primary and secondary schools and Academies including Free Schools that have agreed to continue co-ordinating with North Yorkshire LA will be processed and if applicable offered by the LA.  Schools that are their own admission authority and are not continuing to co-ordinate in-year admissions with North Yorkshire LA must communicate the availability of places to the LA when requested and must, when in receipt of an in-year application notify the LA of both the application and its outcome. The Admission Authority must also inform parents of their right to appeal against the refusal of a school place.

5.     Each LA must have a Fair Access Protocol, agreed with the majority of schools in its area to ensure that, outside the normal admissions round, unplaced children, especially the most vulnerable, are offered a place at a suitable school as quickly as possible.  There is no duty for LAs or admission authorities to comply with parental preference when allocating places through the Fair Access Protocol.

6.     Parents who do not wish to accept a place at a school offered to them must notify the admission authority in writing within 2 weeks of the offer being made.

Applying for a school place

7. North Yorkshire LA in-year preference forms must be completed by parents living or moving into North Yorkshire requesting a place at any North Yorkshire primary or secondary school. Proof of residency may be required.

8.  If a child already attending a North Yorkshire school wishes to transfer to another school, parents should, in the first instance discuss the transfer with the current school.

9. Where a child is moving within or into North Yorkshire and is unable to attend the previous school and is without a school place, the application will be processed as soon as possible. Where a child already has a school place but is seeking an alternative school without moving, the application will be processed within a timescale that will enable the child to commence at the proposed new school at the start of the next term or half term. If there are more applications than places available for that year group, the oversubscription criteria will be applied.

10. Where UK passport holders or EU passport holders* apply for a school place whilst living abroad, the application will be processed whilst they are still abroad up to 6 weeks in advance of the requested start date. For non EU residents applications will be processed on their arrival in the UK. Exceptions to this would be when an application is received from a forces family which is accompanied by a posting order/assignment order or an official letter that declares a relocation date and a unit postal address or an area address.  We would accept a UK address from parents living abroad if they have an address in the UK and they can provide proof that they lived at that address immediately prior to their move abroad and will be returning to that same property.

*Brexit - At the time this document is written we have new guidance from the government in respect of Brexit in respect of school places for EU nationals and UK pupils returning to England from the EU after Brexit.  This guidance confirms that:

Schools and local authorities cannot take into account nationality or immigration status when deciding which pupils to admit. There will be no change to this as a result of the UK leaving the EU.

EU, EEA and Swiss citizens, who are eligible for the EU Settlement Scheme, will continue to be entitled to attend a state-funded school. If the UK leaves the EU without a deal, EU, EEA and Swiss citizens who successfully apply for European temporary leave to remain, will also be entitled to attend a state-funded school until their temporary leave to remain ends. After that time, the UK’s new immigration system will apply to them.

EU, EEA and Swiss children arriving after 31 December 2020, who are not dependents of UK residents  or of parents in the UK on a work or study visa - and who wish to study in the UK, will need to meet the requirements of the future immigration system. This will not permit non-dependent foreign national children to enter the country to attend a state-funded school.

State-funded schools that routinely recruit EU, EEA and Swiss nationals from overseas should reconsider their recruitment strategy in light of the above changes to the immigration system.

The right of Irish nationals to access education will continue to be protected under the Common Travel Area arrangements.

Where necessary Home Office guidance will be sought.

11. When we receive an in-year preference form from a parent living in North Yorkshire requesting any North Yorkshire school, we will process the form by attempting to comply with the parent’s highest ranked preference of school. We will liaise with the school listed as their highest preference.

12. If we are able to allocate the highest ranked preference on the form we will send an offer of that school place to the parent.  If we are unable to allocate a place we will offer the statutory right of appeal and will then consider other schools listed in order of preference and will offer a place at one of those schools if possible.  If we are unable to do so we will again offer parents the statutory right of appeal.

13. When we receive a request for a place in the normal year of entry if the school is oversubscribed a waiting list will be maintained by the relevant admission authority until 31 December 2021.

14. We require a reply from schools informing us if they are able to accommodate additional children within 5 school days. If they are oversubscribed we will offer parents the statutory right of appeal.

15. Voluntary Aided schools or Academies including Free Schools may require parents to complete a supplementary information form available from the school before a school place can be considered.

16. If parents name a school other than their catchment school, they will be responsible for transport.
