 Responsibility for admissions

The Directors of the Truro and Penwith Academy Trust (TPAT) have responsibility for approval of the Admissions Policy and admissions arrangements for all member schools within the Trust.  The Local Governing Body has delegated responsibility for the proposal of the admissions policy and arrangements, and for application decisions in the member school.  This policy is based upon relevant policy and legislation including the Department for Educations School Admissions Code.  Schools within the Trust operate an equal preference scheme as defined in the Code and will fully participate in Cornwall Council’s Fair Access Protocol.

Admissions Scheme

Cornwall Council has a statutory duty to co-ordinate the admissions process for reception applications and has opted to assist parents by acting as a clearing house for applications to other main school year groups.

Details of the co-ordinated admissions scheme for Reception admissions are available from Cornwall Council.
