School admissions consultation

Consultation on proposed changes to the arrangements for admissions and the transfer of pupils from primary to secondary (in respect of all East Renfrewshire Roman Catholic and non-denominational primary and secondary schools) effective from January 2017.

East Renfrewshire Council (ERC) ran a public consultation for interested individuals and groups to have their say on proposed changes to admissions arrangements for its primary and secondary schools between 26 August 2016 and 10 October 2016.*

The Council consulted on proposals to put in place a single set of admissions criteria for our Roman Catholic and non-denominational schools to ensure that we continue to meet the high demand for places from our residents across our entire school estate, but in particular those seeking a place at a Roman Catholic school.

*Calderwood Lodge Primary School, which is a Jewish faith school, has a different set of admissions arrangements and there are no plans to change these as part of this consultation.

The consultation has now concluded and a full report on its findings and conclusions are now available to view:

The full report and recommendations will be considered by East Renfrewshire Council's Education Committee, at its next meeting on 20 December 2016.
