The School Admissions Code 2021 requires an admission authority to consult each time it proposes to make significant changes to its admission arrangements or if it has not consulted on its admission arrangements for seven years. Where the admission arrangements have not changed from the previous year there is no requirement to consult. Chester Diocesan Academies Trust (CDAT) is the admission authority for the schools within its multi academy trust and is co-ordinating a consultation process on behalf of the schools listed on this page.
In accordance with the School Admissions Code, a consultation period must run for a minimum of six term time weeks and take place between 1 October and 31 January in the determination year. The process allows parents, other schools, other admission authorities, local authorities and other interested stakeholders to raise comments or concerns about the proposed arrangements. This document is particularly for the attention of parents, other admissions authorities, the local authority and other local dioceses. This consultation will run between 4 December 2023 and 26 January 2024 and you are invited to submit comments in writing about the proposal above to: Chester Diocesan Academies Trust, 5500 Daresbury Park, Daresbury, Warrington, WA4 4GE. Alternatively, you may wish to e-mail: email@example.com. Comments should also be copied to the Chair of Governing Body at the school address.
