The changes being proposed are as follows:

  1. Furzefield Primary School – reduction in published admission number for Reception from 60 to 58
  2. Wallace Fields Junior School – change to the points used to measure each child’s nearest school and home to school distance so these will be calculated according to the nearest gate for either Wallace Fields Infant or Wallace Fields Junior school rather than just those for Wallace Fields Junior School
  3. Criterion 2 for children with an exceptional social/medical need – provision for children previously in state care outside England to be given priority within this criterion  

The consultation will run until Monday 19 November 2018. Anyone wishing to submit their views should complete an online response form. Alternatively paper response forms are available by telephoning the Surrey Schools and Childcare Service on 0300 200 1004. Please note that only response forms which are fully completed with the respondent’s name and address will be accepted.

After the closing date, responses will be collated and presented to Surrey County Council’s decision making Cabinet on 29 January 2019. Its decision will then need to be ratified by the full County Council on 5 February 2019. Once determined the final admission arrangements will be placed on Surrey’s website at www.surreycc.gov.uk/admissions.
