Admissions Policy Consultation

The schools in River Learning Trust that are in Oxfordshire are consulting on their Admissions Policies for the year 2021/22.  This is primarily to ensure that the Trust’s schools’ policies are in alignment with the in-year admissions arrangements for the OCC which our schools adhere to. The main change to the policies is in the way that distance to the school is measured and this is now “straight-line distance” in line with OCC practice.  You can see our school’s proposed policy on the link to the right or below. It is also on the OCC consultation portal. The consultation period will end on Friday 24th January 2020. Should you have any comment or query on the policy please contact M Robinson.
