The proposed changes to school admission arrangements for 2022 are outlined in section 2 of the report.


The Cabinet Member for Education and Skills has approved:


(1)The redrawn catchment areas for the Chichester area.


(2)The creation of a catchment area for Woodgate Primary School (currently called Warninglid Primary School) to reflect the relocation of the school to a new site, this will also be reflected in the oversubscription criteria of Woodgate Primary school and Colgate Primary School to reflect the federation between the two schools.


(3)The division of the current catchment area for Warninglid Primary School at its existing site, between surrounding schools to ensure any children resident in the area are able to receive priority for school places based on the catchment criteria.
