Consultation on a change of admission arrangements for
Kings International College
Kings International College is proposing to add a level to their admissions criteria above the ‘all other children category to incorporate service children. This would be number 5 on the criteria below.
All applications will be considered under our admissions criteria, which are:
1. Looked after and previously looked after children.*
2. Children with exceptional arrangements.
3. Sibling at time of admission.
4. Children of members of staff, employed at the school for two or more years at the time the application for admission to the school is made, and/or the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.
5. Service children where one or both parents living at the same address as the child are current serving military personnel (not reserves)
6. All other children.
Should there be an oversubscription, the criteria will be applied as above and within category 6, places will be offered based on distance.
A waiting list will be kept by the school and places offered as they arise using the above criteria.
• children who are in the care of a local authority or provided with accommodation by a local authority in accordance with Section 22 of the Children Act 1989, e.g. fostered or living in a children’s home, at the time an application for a school is made; and
• children who have previously been in the care of a local authority or provided with accommodation by a local authority in accordance with Section 22 of the Children Act 1989 and who have left that care through adoption, a child arrangements order (in accordance with Section 8 of the Children Act 1989 and as amended by the Children and Families Act 2014) or special guardianship order (in accordance with Section 14A of the Children Act 1989); and
• children who appear (to the admission authority) to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted. A child will be regarded as having been in state care outside of England if they were accommodated by a public authority, a religious organisation or any other provider of care whose sole purpose is to benefit society. The parent/carer will need to provide evidence to demonstrate that the child was in state care outside of England and left that care as a result of being adopted
Any comments on this consultation should be addressed to Mrs J. Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org
The consultation will end on 27th December 2021.
