On 1st January 2019, Ruishton Church of England Primary School converted to Academy status, joining the Oak Partnership. The school governors will review the Admission Arrangements for the school in the coming months. This will be done in conjunction with the Oak Partnership Trust Board, who are now the Admission Authority for all the schools in its Trust. In accordance with statutory requirements, the earliest that any new admission arrangements could apply is September 2021 and a public consultation on any new arrangements must be held between October 1st 2019 and January 31st 2020.
Until September 2021 the Admission Arrangements published by Somerset Local Authority will continue to apply.”
Where an application has been refused in any year group, the child will be placed on a waiting list. This will be kept strictly in order of over-subscription criteria by the Multi Academy Trust, as the Admission Authority, and the child will remain on the waiting list until the end of the academic year in which the application was refused. Parents are responsible for informing the Admission Authority of any changes in their circumstances, which could affect their place on the waiting list.
