Leicestershire school admissions consultation - 2022 entry

We are consulting on the proposed change to reduce the admission number to one of our maintained primary schools.

This consultation runs from 13 November 2020 to 27 December 2020

In order to make the change Leicestershire, as an admitting authority, is required to consult on the change. We are therefore seeking your view on the reduction as detailed below.

Although the changes will only affect the Martinshaw Community Primary school, we would like to hear from all schools (including academies, voluntary-controlled schools, aided schools, community special schools, pre-school providers) neighbouring LAs and a range of professional agencies.

To take part, please read the relevant documents provided, then continue to the online questionnaire to provide your feedback.

How to have your say

To submit your views, please fill out the consultation survey and make sure it reaches us by midnight 27 December 2020 at the latest. You can do this by accessing the online consultation.
