Maiden Erlegh School – Admission Result

Tonight Wokingham Borough Council’s Executive voted 8:1 for the alternative tie-breaker (* See below)

For Park Ward residents this means that unless they are (a) a “looked after” child; (b) have a serious medical, physical or psychological condition; or (c) are a designated area sibling; they are very unlikely to be given a place as (d) all the other designated area children criterion is probably going to be over-subscribed.

I will speak with my colleague Mark Ralph (Lead Cllr for Education & Children’s Services) tomorrow to discuss WBC’s decision.

*  The wording of the alternative tie-breaker is:  “For Maiden Erlegh School only, within criteria C and D, first priority will be given to applicants whose permanent home address is south of the centre line of the A329 and within 600m radius of Maiden Erlegh School, after which priority will be given to the applicants whose permanent home address is the greatest additional radial distance to the alternative designated area school (Bulmershe).”

UPDATE: There is an article in today’s Reading Post
