School admission arrangements for 2018
Councillors will be asked to approve school admissions arrangements for 2018 at
a meeting of the Cabinet on Tuesday 14 March.
The annual consultation exercise with school governors, diocesan authorities
and neighbouring councils took place during January and February. It looked at
the number of pupils which can be admitted to individual schools, based on
nationally determined criteria and regulations.
In Flintshire the vast majority (96%) of parental preferences continue to be
met with a relatively low number of appeals.
There are proposed changes to the admission numbers in several schools to
reflect changes in accommodation. All changes have been approved by the
relevant headteacher. The schools are: Ysgol Cae’r Nant, Ysgol Parc y Llan,
Connah’s Quay High School, St David’s High School and St Richard Gwyn High
Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Youth, Councillor
Chris Bithell, said:
“It is encouraging that most children in Flintshire are able to attend the
school of their choice. I would like to thank all those who provided feedback
during the recent consultation and I am confident that the vast majority of
parental preferences will continue to be met.”
