Consultation for Admission to Archbishop Blanch in September 2024

 

Consultation period Monday 12 December 2022 – Monday 23 January 2023

VISION STATEMENT:

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 2024 admissions arrangements and policy and would welcome any comments. it is proposed a change to the following:

  • Increase to Pupil Admission Number (PAN) from 180 to 190 in Year 7
  • The period specified for attendance at worship for 2024 admissions is 2019, 2020, 2022 and 2023. 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 20 March 2020, with no points available for any applicant for 2021.

Please could we request that any such comments are received by Monday 23 January 2023.

Comments are invited in writing for the attention of Chair of Governors at the above address. Alternatively, you may wish to email consultation@blanch.org.uk.
