Consultation for Admission to Archbishop Blanch in September 2025 – THE CONSULTATION PERIOD HAS NOW CLOSED
Consultation for Admission to Archbishop Blanch in September 2025
Consultation period: Monday 23rd October 2023 – Monday 4th December 2023
We aim to ‘not love in word or talk, but in deed and in truth,’ (1 John 3:18), as we serve not only each other but the wider community through charitable causes.
The Church of England allows us to see the intrinsic value of all members of our community, as we are made in the image of God and loved unconditionally. This allows our faith school to be truly inclusive.
As an admissions authority, the Governors of Archbishop Blanch School are required by the 1998 School Standards and Framework Act to consult with all other Admission Authorities, the Local Authority and Diocese of Liverpool, before finalising admissions arrangements and policy for September 2021 (as set out in Section 1.42 of the School Admission Code).
In the light of this requirement we are pleased to enclose the Governors’ proposed 2025 admissions arrangements and policy and would welcome any comments. it is proposed a change to the following:
- Removal of the Music Aptitude Criteria, with 8 places added across all remaining criteria. (3 Christian, 2 Muslim, 1 Other World Faith and 2 Local)
- The period specified for attendance at worship for 2025 admissions is 2020,2022 ,2023 & 2024. During the period specified for attendance at worship churches have been closed or limited capacity for public worship has been in effect, so it is not possible to calculate fairly or accurately the points available for attendance at worship. Therefore, where points are allocated for 2020, they will be given up to 20th March 2020, with no points available for any applicant for 2021.
Comments are invited in writing for the attention of Chair of Governors at the above address. Alternatively, you may wish to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please could we request that any such comments are received by Monday 4th December 2023
