Essa Foundation Academies Trust Admissions Policy
Essa Foundation Academies Trust is the admissions body for Essa Primary Academy and Essa Academy.
Admissions bodies must consult interested parties on admissions policies on a periodic basis and when proposing changes. Essa Foundation Academies Trust is consulting on minor changes to its 2018-19 admissions policies for Essa Academy and Essa Primary Academy – a copy of both approved admissions policies is enclosed with this letter.
The changes for 2018-19 are to the over-subscription selection criteria include:
- Attendance at Essa Nursery, at the time an application is made to Essa Primary Academy.
- Attendance at Essa Primary when an application is made to Essa Academy.
- Children currently eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant, Service Premium Grant or Early Years Premium Grant.
- Children of staff employed by the Trust for two or more years in a demonstrable skills shortage post.
The consultation was open until 19th December 2016. The revised policies have now been adopted by EFAT and both Local Governing Bodies.
