Community Schools Admissions Arrangements  

As set out in the School Admissions Code, Admission authorities must set (‘determine’) admission arrangements annually. Where changes are proposed to admission arrangements, the admission authority must first publicly consult on those arrangements. Consultation must be for a minimum of 6 weeks and must take place between 1st October and 31st January of the school year before those arrangements are to apply.  

Hillingdon Council is the admissions authority for all Hillingdon Community schools and the Council will be consulting for 8 weeks from 25th October 2021 until 20th December 2021 (Midday) for changes to the admission criteria to be implemented for admission from September 2023. 

You can access the proposed admission arrangements for Hillingdon community schools for 2023/2024 here. 

 Summary of proposed changes: 

 Reduction of Published Admissions Numbers 

All community schools have a published admissions number in accordance with the School Admissions Code 2021. This is the number of school places that the admission authority must offer in each relevant age group of a school for which it is the admission authority.  

The Local Authority is consulting to reduce the Published Admission Number for: 

· Field End Infants from 120 to 90, reducing the distance priority radius from 1250m to 1000. 

· Harefield Infant School from 90 to 60, reducing the distance priority radius from 1000m to 750m. 

· Harefield Junior School from 90 to 60, reducing the distance priority radius from 1000m to 750m. 

· Harlyn Primary School from 90 to 60, reducing the distance priority radius from 1000m to 750m. 

Changes to School Measuring Points 

Hillingdon are proposing to amend the point of measurement for school applications for: 

· Whitehall Infant & Nursery School 

· Yeading Infant & Nursey School

 The changes are proposed to ensure accuracy of their school building usage for admission measurement purposes.
