The Executive Director of Children’s Services – Education, Early Help and Social Care, Brighter Futures for Children, submitted a report presenting the Committee with the revised Admissions Policy for Holy Brook Primary School.  A copy of the Admissions Policy for Holy Brook School was attached to the report at Appendix 1.

The report explained that the Admissions Policy had been updated by the Headteacher of The Holy Brook School and had been approved by the school’s governing body.  The updates had been made by the Headteacher in partnership with the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Team Manager, BFfC.  All pupils at the school had an Education, Health and Care Plan with a primary need of Social, Emotional and Mental Health Needs (SEMH).  The reasons for the updates were to ensure that BFfC SEND Team was fully involved in decision making regarding the identification and prioritisation of pupils admitted to Holy Brook School, in accordance with the SEND Code of Practice.  The proposed revised Admissions Policy would be reviewed jointly, and ratified annually, by the governing body of the school and ACE Committee in line with their responsibility for maintained schools.

Resolved –    That the updated version of the Admissions Policy for implementation at the next review date be approved.
