Admissions Policy Consultation

Cartmel Priory CofE School is proposing to change its admissions policy criteria from September 2020. The school is therefore consulting with stakeholders including the local authority, local schools and current and prospective parents.

The period of consultation lasts for 6 weeks from: 26th November 2018 to 6th January 2019

Key changes

Carlisle Diocese Board of Education has recently held a consultation regarding the removal of faith criteria from church school admission policies. Overwhelmingly the responses from schools were in favour of this proposal.

In line with this Cartmel CofE Priory School has removed any reference to faith criteria from its proposed admissions policy.

This will not in any way diminish the distinctiveness, vision, values and ethos of the school, but reflects a recognition that the school seeks to serve the common good of the whole community and is an inclusive community school.

The new admissions policy can be opened through the link below.

If you would like to respond to the consultation please do so either by email admin@cartmelprioryschool.co.uk , or in writing to the school address before the 6th January 2019. Please put the subject title “admissions policy consultation”.
