Consultation on Watling Park School Admissions Policy 2023-24

Background

Watling Park School opened in 2015 as a two-form entry school serving the community of Burnt Oak and surrounding areas of Barnet.  Bellevue Place Education Trust (BPET), as the owner and manager of Watling Park School is the Admissions Authority.

In accordance with the School Admissions (Admission Arrangements and Co-ordination of Admission Arrangements) (England) Regulations 2012, admission authorities must consult on their admission arrangements at least once every 7 years, even if there have been no changes during that period. A consultation must run for a period of six weeks and be completed by 31 January 2022.
