REAch2 Academy Trust (the Trust), as the admission authority for all of its academies as per the admissions code 2021, is consulting on the admission arrangements for all of its schools. It is the responsibility of the Trust to determine the arrangements for all of its schools, ensuring that they are fully compliant with the admissions code 2021 and other statutory legislation, such as the Equalities Act 2010.
On 4 October 2023, the Trust Board approved several variations to the current arrangements, which seek to add clarity to a number of key definitions within the policy. The new policy also includes more information on how parents can access other admissions related information, including in-year admissions, appeals processes, and Fair Access Protocol’s.
The new policies do not propose any change to the school’s existing over-subscription criteria. The new policy seeks to make clear that children within the final category of the over-subscription criteria are ranked by the distance they live from the school. The Trust has therefore re-named this criterion from ‘other children’ to ‘distance’. Children within that criterion will still be ranked in the same way.
You can find the proposed school policy for 2025/2026 by visiting Academy Directory - REAch2 Academy Trust
The consultation will run from 6 December 2023 to 31 January 2024.
We welcome feedback from all stakeholders on the proposed arrangements. Responses to the consultation may be placed by any of the following means:

Chapel End Infant School Transfer
Chapel End Infant School and Chapel End Junior Academy work in partnership to ensure that the transfer for all the children between Key Stages 1 and 2 is as smooth as possible. All the children spend some time in the Junior School to find out what their first days will be like. Staff liaise across the two schools to pass on information and to prepare an appropriate transfer curriculum. All Year 2 Infants children will automatically have a place in the Junior school, however you still need to fill in the transfer form which you can obtain from the Infants or from Pupil Admissions.
Secondary school transfers are arranged through the local authority. The school passes information to parents about secondary transfer in the early Autumn Term and liaises with families, the LA and schools as required.
Further details, including the right of appeal against a decision, are made clear at the appropriate time.
We work in partnership with our local secondary schools and aim to provide all our children with the best opportunities to be successful as they continue their learning journey.
If you have any questions about transfer we will be more than happy to help.
Please see our admissions policy below for more details about our selection and oversubscription criteria, and our process for dealing with applications.
