Proposed changes to the School Admission Arrangements 2021/22

The Council is required to review its Schools Admission arrangements annually and is holding a consultation on School Admission Arrangements for the 2021-2022 academic year.  

The consultation is an opportunity for people to learn about proposed changes to the Cardiff Council School Admission Arrangements for the 2021-2022 academic year.

The draft Admissions Arrangements for 2021/22 propose:

  • Changes for the admission of children with Additional Learning Needs, who have an Individual Development Plan, which corresponds with changes in the draft ALN Code 
  • The implementation of coordinated arrangements, with the Governing Body of St Mellons Church in Wales Primary School for admissions to the school
  • Clarification of when the Council would consider an applicant’s circumstances to have changed, and that an application would then be considered as a new application.
  • Clarification of timescales for the withdrawal of the offer of a school place.

The Council is also proposing the continuation of coordinated secondary school admission arrangements, which applies to all community secondary schools; Corpus Christi RC High School; St. Teilo’s CW High School and Whitchurch High (Foundation) School.
