Consultation Process September 2022

We are required to consult on our admission arrangements when there are significant changes and/or at least every seven years.  We believe it is important for all current and prospective parents and carers to understand how our school manages the admission process.

The consultation process should take place for at least 6 weeks between 1 October 2020 and 31 January 2021.  At the end of the consultations, decisions are made, and the arrangements are considered “determined”.  The admission arrangements must be determined by the 28 February 2021 and published on the 15 March 2021.


Consultation Period: 2 November 2020 – 11 January 2021

  • The Academy Committee of Portswood Primary School propose that the 2022/23 admission policy will be implemented for Year R in September 2022 and ‘in-year’ admissions for 2022/23.
  • The draft policy for consultation can be viewed on the school website or a copy is available, on request, from the school


This consultation is for the attention of:

  1. Parents of children between the ages of two and eleven years old at the school currently and in the surrounding area

  3. All other admission authorities within the relevant area
  4. Whichever of the Academy Committee and the local authority who are not the admission authority
