Only heard something of the sort mentioned by Stevew61, on an earlier thread. Not elsewhere. Would make sense, If they were preparing to follow the new admissions code.

Only way to find out for sure, is to contact the school directly, I presume.

I've actually thought of contacting Reading, to ask if they would be going with the new code, after reading the Admins code threads on here. It's just plucking up enough courage :oops:

I think it would be a good thing if they were to bring it forward, so as to give results before we had to submit our CAF forms. But, also a pain as this would mean less time to prepare our kids for the actual tests.

One thought that had occurred, is that more children would presumably be entered for tests now, as they have stopped the 'first preference first' stipulation, which held for a couple of Reading and Bracknel secondarys, and I know put people off, from trying as they would lose a place at their local good school.

Thanks Patricia, just found the following link, suggesting the same, on the Reading LA website.

http://www.reading.gov.uk/Documents/education/admissions/Kendrick%2007-%20Admissions%20Policy-2008%20entry.pdf

Such a shame!

Would really, really, really have liked to know results before March 2008!

Can anyone respond to the consultation re admissions on the Reading site, or is it just for schools?

Sorry, didn't make myself clear.

I meant for the consultations on the Reading Borough Council web.
Re: 2008/2009 admissions. http://www.reading.gov.uk/educationandlearning/schools/admissions/General.asp?id=SX9452-A78224F8
It says
Quote:
Consultation ends on the 1 March 2007 for all schools. Final arrangements will be determined by the 19 April 2007 and published in the Autumn of 2007.'


Just thought I might be able to remind them of point re:grammars from new admissions code. :wink:
