Consultation on proposed changes to the school’s Admissions Policy 2022-23

Carr Manor Community School is a Foundation school. The Governing Body acts as the Admissions Authority for the school. All admission authorities are required to act in accordance with the School Admissions Code 2014, this includes consultation on any proposed changes to their admission arrangements, including any supplementary forms used.

This document and the proposed Admissions Policy for 2022-23 provide background to the statutory consultation exercise, and seeks comments on the proposed changes. Hard copies of the consultation documents are available upon request.

Consultees are asked to consider and, if they so wish, to comment on the following proposed changes:

  • Reducing the Published Admission Numbers (PAN) for the school’s Secondary Phase.
  • Changes to the school’s Secondary Phase catchment area.

The consultation will run for 6 calendar weeks from Monday 26th October 2020 until Monday 7th December 2020. Responses should be made to [email protected] under the title “Response to Admissions Consultation 2022/23”


If you are not offered a place at the school you requested you may wish to consider the following:


You can appeal against the decision to refuse your child a place at your preferred school(s). By doing this, you will automatically be placed on the waiting list for your higher preference school. In the meantime, you should accept the place you have been offered by contacting the school directly. This will ensure your child has a place in September and it will not affect your waiting list position or the appeal.

If you wish to appeal for a school in a different local authority, you should contact the relevant council for further details.
