Admissions Policy Consultation

Admissions Policy Consultation

Consultation on Sigma Trust Admission Arrangements

The Sigma Trust is consulting on the 2022/23 admissions policies for the following schools within the Trust:

Philip Morant School & College Monkwick Junior School

 

Following discussions with Essex County Council, we are proposing a reduction in the Published Admission Number (PAN) at Philip Morant School & College from 340 to 308 pupils and at Monkwick Junior School from 90 to 60 pupils.

We are also proposing an increase to the PAN at Clacton County High School, from 308 to 336 pupils.

The DfE’s 2014 statutory ‘School Admissions Code’ guidance requires the Trust to consult on admission arrangements when changes are proposed, and at least once every seven years. However, an increase to the PAN is not a change requiring consultation.

The consultation period will run from Wednesday, 16th December 2020 until Thursday, 28th January 2021; during this time, parents/interested parties are invited to express their views and any concerns about the proposed changes to the admission arrangements at Philip Morant School & College and Monkwick Junior School.

In accordance with statutory DfE guidance, the consultation will run for at least six weeks and, as an interested party, we are keen to hear your views on the proposed changes; therefore, we invite you to participate in the consultation if you have any concerns regarding the matter.

Admission arrangements for the following Trust schools do not require consultation:

Clacton County High School Alton Park Junior School
The Colne Community School & College Holland Park Primary School
Harwich & Dovercourt High School Monkwick Infant & Nursery School
Paxman Academy
St Helena School
The Stanway School
Thomas Lord Audley School

All responses to the consultation should be made in writing and submitted before 5.00pm on Thursday, 28th January 2021 to: Mrs K Hook, PA to The Sigma Trust, The Sigma Trust, Tendring Education Centre, Jaywick Lane, Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, CO16 8BE, or alternatively via mail to:  admin@sigmatrust.org.uk.

Please note that written responses should outline your personal details, including your name, address and relationship to the school.

At the end of the consultation period, the Trust Board will meet to consider responses. The outcome of the consultation will be published on The Trust and individual school’s websites as soon as possible following a decision being reached by the Board.
