  • Comment
The Office of the Schools Adjudicator has published decisions ...
The Office of the Schools Adjudicator has published decisions

relating to Wandsworth LBC education authority. The main points on which the decisions have been reached are as follows:

Graveney School, Wandsworth (foundation)

Honeywell Infant & Junior Schools, and parents objected to Graveney

School's admission arrangements for September 2001.

The adjudicator, Tony Webster, determined that the number of pupils

admitted under selective arrangements should be reduced from 125 to

75, or 30% of any varied admission number; as at present, all

applicants to take the common Wandsworth tests and the top 75,

including any siblings and children living close to the school will

be awarded places under the selective arrangements. The remaining 175

places to be filled according to the second published criteria.

Ernest Bevin College (community)

Honeywell Infant & Junior Schools, and parents objected to Wandsworth

LEA's admission arrangements in relation to Ernest Bevin College for

September 2001.

The adjudicator, Tony Webster, determined that the number of pupils

admitted by selection should be reduced from 90 to 60, or 33% of any

varied admission number; as at present, all applicants, including any

siblings, will take the common Wandsworth tests and the top 60 will

be awarded places under the selective arrangements. The remaining 120

places to be filled according to the second category of published

criteria.

Burntwood School (foundation)

Honeywell Infant & Junior Schools, and parents objected to Burntwood

School's admission arrangements for September 2001.

The adjudicator, Tony Webster, determined that all applicants will

take the Wandsworth tests, the number of pupils admitted by selection

will remain unchanged; and so the top 90, or the equivalent

percentage of any varied admission number, will be awarded places

under selection by ability, including siblings. The remaining 193

places to be filled according to the second category of published

arrangements.

NOTES

1. School adjudicators were established by the School Standards

and Framework Act of 1998. They have two tasks. The first is to

consider objections to arrangements made, from September 2000

onwards, for admitting children to the schools their parents want.

The second is to deal with local disagreements about school

organisation; for example, whether a particular school should

close or be enlarged.

2. Copies of the adjudicators' determinations can be obtained from

the Office of the Schools Adjudicator. Individual Adjudicators are

not in a position to comment on their decisions but, if

clarification of those decisions is needed, enquiries may be

addressed to: The Office of the Schools Adjudicator, Vincent

House, 2 Woodland Road, Darlington DL3 7PJ. Tel: 0191 202 3600
