Please find the proposed Admissions Policy of Leeds City Council for 2014 for consultation in the download section below. We are consulting on changes required from Fri 30 November 2012 to Fri 25 Jan 2013
Changes we are proposing to the policy are as follows:
Priority 1c for young carers
It has been requested that we consider giving priority to applicants who are young carers. A working party has been convened to look at how this might be defined, and final wording may vary as a result.
Medical Priority Wording
Following an Ombudsman case this year we are reviewing our wording on medical needs to make it clearer for parents.
Delegated decision making for In Year Applications.
We are consulting separately with schools on delegating the powers to make offers for community and Voluntary Controlled schools to the schools for in year applications from September 2013. This proposal is referred to in the proposed policy.
Infant And Junior Sibling Link
Last year it was agreed to allow the sibling link to operate across linked Infant and Junior Schools. This had previously been prohibited by the admissions code, and although not previously specifically stated in the policy, but was applied in the process of allocating places. We have now added wording to reflect this change to allow the link in the main policy itself, so it is easier for parents to understand.
