We are currently consulting on proposals to make a change to the school’s admissions arrangements with effect from the 2021/22 year of entry (children starting reception in September 2021).
The consultation relates to enabling the children of school staff to join Churchfields. It is important to us that we recognise the commitment of the school staff and support them with their work-life balance. A school place could help us to keep experienced staff who may otherwise leave us when they start a family. It may also help us to attract the best new staff to work here.
There are many schools which already include children of staff in their prioritisation criteria, including other schools within our trust, and across Bromley borough. The change is likely to impact a very small number of school places. It will have no impact on the children who are currently at Churchfields, or their siblings.
We are consulting with parents, carers and other community members between 5th December 2019 and 30th January 2020. If you have any comments, please do let us know. Full details of the proposal and how to have your say can be found on the link below:
