Consultation process

St. Anselm’s Governing Body is its own admissions authority for St. Anselm’s Catholic Primary School.


The School Admissions Code requires admission authorities to consult on their admission arrangements and any supplementary information form whenever significant changes are proposed to the admission arrangements.  It is also a requirement to consult at least once every seven years even if there have been no changes during that period.


We are therefore required to undertake a public consultation on our Admissions Policy 2025-26.  In accordance with the School Admissions Code, the consultation period must run for a minimum of six weeks and take place between 1st October 2023 and 31st January 2024.


St. Anselm’s Catholic Primary School’s consultation period will run from 11th December 2023 to 22nd January 2024.


The admissions authority must determine admission arrangements by 28th February 2024 and publish these on its website by 15th March 2024.


The proposed Admission Policy and Certificate of Practice is available to view below



Who can be involved in the consultation?

We invite comments from the following groups:

  • parents of children between the ages of two and eighteen
  • other persons in the relevant area who in the opinion of the admission authority have an interest in the proposed admissions
  • all other admission authorities within the relevant area (except secondary schools)
  • whichever of the governing body and the local authority is not the admission authority
  • any adjoining neighbouring local authorities where the admission authority is the local authority
  • the body or person representing the religion or religious denominations.


Our reason for consultation

This consultation is in accordance with the School Admissions Code which states consultations are mandatory when changes are proposed to admission arrangements. St. Anselm’s Catholic Primary will retain its PAN of 30.
