The 2014-15 admission arrangements were determined by the council's Executive Committee on 28 March 2013 for community and voluntary controlled schools in the Wokingham Borough, together with the co-ordinated schemes for entry to primary schools, primary to secondary and infant to junior school transfer and in-year applications.
Admissions policies have also been determined by the schools' governing bodies for aided and academies within the borough and will either be shown below or available on individual school websites by 1 May 2013.
Own admission authorities within the borough are:
- All Saints CE Aided Primary School
- The Holt School
- Earley St Peter's CE Aided Primary School
- Maiden Erlegh School
- Finchampstead CE Aided Primary School
- Oakbank School
- Grazeley Parochial CE Aided Primary School
- Sonning CE Aided Primary School
- St Dominic Savio Catholic Primary School
- St Sebastian's CE Aided Primary School
- St Teresa's Catholic Primary School
- Shinfield St Mary's CE Aided Junior School
- The Piggott School
Any person, or body, can make an objection to the schools adjudicator when they consider that a maintained school or academy's arrangements are unlawful, or not in compliance with the School Admissions Code or relevant law relating to admissions. The deadline for objections is 30 June 2013. The schools adjudicator may consider late objections, but only if there is good reason for not meeting the deadline of 30 June.
Objections that may not be referred to the adjudicator include:
- Where an admission number has not been changed or has been increased for any school whose admission authority is not the local authority or an academy
- Where there has been an increase or no change to the admission number for a community or voluntary controlled school other than an objection by the governing body of that school
- An agreement that the admission arrangements for an academy may vary from the School Admissions Code (which is subject to an agreement between the proprietor of an Academy and the Secretary of State and set out in the academy arrangements).
There is a further restriction on referring objections where an adjudicator has determined an objection to the admission arrangements of a school or academy. No objection may be referred to the adjudicator raising the same or substantially the same issues in relation to those admission arrangements within two years of the decision by the adjudicator.
Objections can be made by completing the form available on the Education website. An objection may only be referred where the person or body making the objection provides their name and address to the adjudicator.
