Admissions

The School

Conwy County Borough Council, as the LEA, decides the criteria and procedure for admissions to Ysgol Llandrillo. The LEA will comply with statutory requirements and will give full recognition to the expression of parental preference in the context of its duty to ensure the provision of efficient education and the efficient use of education resources. The LEA will not refuse applicants for a particular school unless that school has reached its standard number for admissions, that being the number a school can admit in any one year.

The LEA will admit pupils up to the Standard Number of each school, or up to any higher limit which may have been agreed between the County Borough and a particular governing body. The LEA will only admit pupils in excess of the Standard Number where it is deemed not to be prejudicial to the provision of efficient education or the efficient use of resources.

Nursery Education

The Authority will admit a child to a maintained nursery school in the September following their 3rd birthday. Nursery schooling is provided on the basis of 5 x 2.5 hour sessions per week.
Though every effort will be made to meet parental preference, nursery education is not statutory and parents have no right of appeal if they are unsuccessful in gaining a nursery place.

Admission to Reception

The Authority will admit a child to a maintained school in the September following their 4th birthday.

All application forms are processed through the LEA.

Transfer outside normal admission times

The Authority is prepared to consider requests for transfers between schools when it is deemed to be in the best interest of the child.
More detailed information regarding the LEA’s Admission Policy is given in “A Parent’s Guide to Education Services in Conwy.

Pupils with Disabilities

The school will admit all pupils whose educational needs can be met from the resources provided to it and whose admission will not significantly detract from the needs of other pupils. Where children have a statement of ALN maintained on them, their admission must be negotiated via the LEA’s Statementing Officer. Pupils with disabilities will not be treated less favourably than other pupils.

Accessibility Plan

We have developed an Accessibility Plan to help us organise the premises and our practice to address the needs of our pupils. We try to give consideration to all aspects of accessibility, including those with learning difficulties, physical disabilities and emotional or behavioural difficulties. A copy of the Plan is available on request.
