Re: Appeal against refusal of Admission Place
The reason for refusal of the offer of a place at the Streetly Academy is because the school has received a greater number of applications than it had places available. The schools published admission criteria had to be applied in deciding whether a place for your child could be offered. The criteria applied was:
i. Children in Public Care
ii. Brother or Sister attending the school in years 7 to 10 when the application is made and who will be still attending at the
proposed admission date.
iii. Children of staff employed at the Academy
iv. Attendance at one of the named feeder primary schools Blackwood Primary, Lindens Primary or Manor Primary and living
within 2.5 miles of the Streetly Academy
v. Proximity of the child's home to the school
Having applied the criteria, which are set by the Governors Admission Committee, the school was unable to make an offer to your child.
