Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
Julia Richard-Davies has posted on Facebook about the Haringey Schools's admission criteria. Haringey is consulting about the schools' criteria and they want public opinion. What Julia has written is:
Haringey Council has released a document on changes to school admission policies - this is the main change for primaries:
"...limit admission of a sibling to a school if there is a change to the home address between admission of the first child and any subsequent child(ren). Where the change of address means that the family lives more than 0.5 miles from the school, any sibling would not be given priority for admission to the school."
There are other changes to nursery, secondary and a host of schools which have their own application processes....
So moving any distance at all loses you your sibling rights! I confess I haven't read the rest.
