We want your views on proposed changes to the admissions policy and arrangements for 2021/2022 entry for some schools in the borough. Share your views by completing our survey. The consultation runs from 13 December 2019 to 26 January 2020. Have your say now.

The School Admissions Code 2014 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 primary schools from the 2021/22 academic year. This proposal 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:

  • Fenstanton
  • Glenbrook
  • Henry Fawcett
  • Kings Avenue
  • Kingswood
  • Stockwell

There are no changes proposed to the existing admissions criteria or main admissions processes for Lambeth community schools (and Oasis Academy Johanna, on behalf of Oasis Community Learning).

A major change within the policy is the inclusion of The Norwood School planning to open an exciting opportunity for an additional 18 Year 10 places for visual and performing arts bursaries. These 18 places are for new entrants and will be an additional 10% to their Year 10 PAN. The admissions process and timescales for this will follow the same as secondary transfer (Year 7 intake), so applications can be made from 1 September 2020 for 2021 intake.
