Talking to children about the terror attack in London
Choosing your child's school
Getting your child into the secondary school you want may not be quite so easy from next year.
A big consultation has just started into changes which could see some schools in Gloucestershire getting more applications than they have places, schools changing catchment areas and some schools bringing in catchment areas for the first time.
Charlotte Jones, Senior Admissions Manager at Gloucestershire County Council, said: “It’s important that parents read through the admissions policies for all the schools they are considering before they actually apply, particularly as some schools are proposing to make changes this year.
“This consultation is a chance for parents to share any concerns they may have with their local schools so that these can be take into account before schools make final decisions on their admissions policies. All schools’ policies and information on the consultation is on the county council’s admissions pages on the website.”
Any questions you have about secondary school admissions should be directed to Gloucestershire County Council’s Development, Policy and Appeals team on 01452 425173 or go to www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/schooladmissions
The consultation period will end on 28th February .
