- Schools and education
Please note this consultation is closed
The School Admissions Code 2021 requires schools, or the Local Authority for community schools, to formally consult with the public regarding changes to their admissions criteria arrangements. This would include admissions criteria and decreases to the Published Admissions Number (PAN). If no changes are made, there is a requirement that schools consult every seven years.
The changes proposed for Lambeth community schools are the formal reductions in PAN for the following schools from the 2024/25 academic year. The proposal regarding primary schools is part of a wider undertaking by the council to reduce PANs due to falling population across the borough.
Please see list of schools below who have agreed to reduce the number of Reception places:
|Kings Avenue School||15||30|
|Lark Hall Primary||30||45|
There are no changes proposed to the existing admissions criteria or main admissions processes for Lambeth community primary schools (and Oasis Academy Johanna, on behalf of Oasis Community Learning), nor Woodmansterne School (both phases), and Lilian Baylis Technology School.
Changes have been made for:
- the Norwood School Year 10 entry to remove coordinated admission for 2024/25 entry.
- the implementing of singular waiting list closing date of 31 August, for In-year admissions.
- the formalisation of the Fair Access Protocol within the admission policy and arrangements.
To help you have your say on changes you can view the draft admissions policy.
