Details of all budget decisions made can be accessed on our website.

We asked

Clackmannanshire Council is proposing to change the primary schools Admissions Policy so that pupils that can demonstrate affiliation to the RC church by means of baptismal certificate, would remain entitled to enrol at their catchment denominational school in these circumstances, but all other pupils would be required to submit a placing request.

It is proposed that the revised policy would take effect from school session 2019/20 but that the revised policy would not apply to children currently attending either of the two Roman Catholic Primary schools.

 

You said

21 responses were received to the online consultation. 14 of these agreed with the change and 7 disagreed. A response to those who disagreed is contained in the report.

At public meetings, Church representatives and parents had no objections. The Education Scotland report detailed no objections.

 

We did

Based on the feedback from the consultation process and the conclusions of the Education Scotland report, a report will be made to the meeting of the People Committee of Clackmannanshire Council on 14 March 2019 recommending acceptance of the change in the Admissions policy.
