Admissions for 2020
In November last year, we opened a consultation to seek the views of parents and staff on a proposal to admit Primary aged children to Rainham from September 2020. Rainham School for Girls is one of the highest performing, non-selective secondary schools in Medway and we had believed that extending the age range would allow Primary children access to this outstanding provision. However, after taking into account the views shared during the consultation, we have made the decision not to proceed. We would like to thank all those who shared their feedback.
Based on the above decision, the attached admission policy for 2020 has been determined unchanged from 2019, with the exception of a change of wording to the distancing criteria to correctly reflect the position at Medway relating to transition and to clarify our process for in-year admissions. This does not constitute a change to practice.
