Re: Parents to be consulted over plans to change sibling rul

BUT what about the families, such as mine, who have not moved but due to a shrinking catchment siblings would not get in. Will the council be making this ruling just for new applicants? Does anyone know how we would stand legally if we were given a place under the old criteria? Do the LEA have to le...

Re: Parents to be consulted over plans to change sibling rul

Could the council just spend more resources on officially checking people's place of residence. They are proposing this for 2016- why not start it earlier to prevent people working the system.

We live 915m from the school. We have never "played" the system to try and get into a more successful...
