Consultation on proposed changes to The Crofty Multi Academy Trust’s Admissions Arrangements

Crofty Multi Academy Trust is reviewing its schools’ admissions arrangements for the year 2025-26.

There is one change proposed in our 2025-26 admissions arrangements, which is:

  1. To reduce the PAN of Porthleven Primary School from 40 to 30.

The proposed arrangements with the changes highlighted are in the attached draft admissions policy. We openly invite comments from all stakeholders on these proposed admission arrangements in accordance with the School Admissions Code. The six-week consultation period begins on Tuesday 19th December 2023 and will end on Wednesday 31st  January 2024.

You can submit your comments by emailing admin@croftymat.org or writing to the Company Secretary at Unit 2 The Setons, Tolvaddon Business Park, Camborne, Cornwall, TR14 0HX.

Please use the reference ‘Consultation Admission Arrangements 25-26’ as your subject heading.  Comments are invited by the close of the school day on Wednesday 31st January 2024.   We will, in due course, provide feedback on this consultation.  If no feedback is provided, please assume that no objections have been brought to our attention.

If you have any queries about the changes to arrangements, or the process, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Responsibility for admissions

The Trustees of Crofty Multi Academy Trust have responsibility for approval of the Admissions Policy and admissions arrangements for all member schools within the Trust. They will operate an admissions policy which ensures that all applications for admission to Crofty MAT academies are dealt with in accordance with the requirements of the School Admissions and Appeals Codes, including the application of an agreed set of published oversubscription criteria and, where appropriate, adherence to Cornwall Council’s coordinated admissions schemes.

All decisions regarding admission to each academy are the responsibility of Crofty MAT. However, it should be noted that Cornwall Council has a statutory duty to co-ordinate the admissions process for reception class applications. In addition, Cornwall Council has opted to assist parents by acting as a “clearing house” for applications to other school year groups.

Crofty MAT schools will participate fully in the Local Authority’s Fair Access Protocol and the Local Authority’s Co-ordinated Admissions Schemes. Details of these schemes are available on the Council’s website (www.cornwall.gov.uk/admissions) or on request from the Local Authority. Closing dates and
other details about the application process will be stated in those Schemes.

Details of the co-ordinated admissions scheme for Reception admissions are available from Cornwall Council School Admissions Team, New County Hall, Truro, TR1 3AY

Closing dates, deadlines and timescales (including those relating to late applications) will be as stated in those schemes.
