Bishopthorpe Infant School admission arrangements 2021/22

We’re seeking to reduce our Pupil Admission Number for Bishopthorpe Infant School from 60 to 50.

Available data suggests that there is not the demand for 60 places to be admitted in Reception:

  • over the last 3 years we’ve admitted, on average, 50 children per year
  • the local area has seen a falling birth rate which means that for numbers to increase, children would be travelling from out of area
  • there are no plans for future housing development in our surrounding area that would attract young families

Given that we’re bound by legislation to maximum class sizes of 30, reducing the Pupil Admission Number will allow us to make strategic decisions about structures and resources that will allow the school to run in a financially sustainable manner and best meet the needs of our children.

See supporting documents relating to the Bishopthorpe Infant School Admission Arrangements:

Responses should be submitted by email to admissionsconsultation@york.gov.uk.

Consultation closes at midnight on 17 January 2020.
