Admission Arrangements Consultation - September 2023-2024
In accordance with the School Admissions Code 2021, Bishop Wilson C. of E. Primary School is required to consult on its arrangements at least every 7 years or where changes to the arrangements are proposed.
The Governing Body are proposing changes to the policy. Our draft Admissions Policy for the academic year 2023-24 is available to view below or in the school office. Please note that proposed changes to the Admission Arrangements are highlighted in yellow.

This consultation process will commence on 20th December and conclude on 31st January 2022. Once the consultation has closed, comments and feedback will be considered by the Governors.
