Proposed Admission Arrangements 2022/23, Please click here

Knutsford Primary Academy is consulting on the proposed admissions arrangements for the school year 2022/23 and is seeking responses from parents/carers, schools and community groups.  The proposed changes are to amend the wording in rule 5 – Nearest School: Children for whom it is the nearest school or academy.  This includes all schools except those which allocate places on the basis of faith (membership or practice) before allocating on the basis of distance/location, and multiple births: The school,  as the admission authority will admit over the school’s published admission number when a single twin/multiple birth child is allocated a place at the school.  The consultation period runs from 26th October 2020 to 6th December 2020.  Please send your comments regarding the proposal to Knutsford Primary Academy directly to
