Proposal for Variation to the Admissions Arrangements for September 2021

At the Full Governing Body meeting on 13 July 2020, the Governors of Emmanuel C/E Primary School resolved to propose that a variation be made to the admissions arrangements for admission to Nursery and Reception in September 2021 and 2022, in respect of the over-subscription criteria relating to church attendance.

The variation requested is that “In the event that during the period specified for attendance at worship the church has been closed for public worship and has not provided alternative premises for that worship, the requirements of these admissions arrangements in relation to attendance will only apply to the period when the church or alternative premises have been fully available for public worship.” The variation was approved by the Schools Adjudicator on 20 August 2020.

Pandemic Response Period

Due to the exceptional circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak and in line with the proposed variance noted above, the Emmanuel Primary School Church of England Governing Body have agreed to waive the attendance requirement for Members of Route A applicants over the period from 15th March 2020 through to 28 March 2021 (the ‘‘Pandemic Response Period”). The Pandemic Response Period will also include any further periods of time where the Government has instructed places of worship to close.

The end of the Pandemic Response Period reflects Government guidance. Members of another Christian Church which has not resumed normal services at the end of the Pandemic Response Period will be required to provide a letter from the clergy person in charge of the Christian Church stating the date from which normal services resumed.

This notice and any other notices relating to the Pandemic Response Period, including the end or resumption of the Pandemic Response Period, will be published in the following locations:

  1. Emmanuel C/E Primary School Admissions Website (https://www.emmanuel.camden.sch.uk/parents-carers/admissions/)
  2. Emmanuel Church West Hampstead Website (http://www.emmanuelnw6.com/)
  3. Emmanuel Church West Hampstead Mailing List

For applicants in January 2021 and 2022, the School Admissions Committee will expect to see evidence of Church Membership over the required two year period, but will disregard the lack of attendance during the ‘Pandemic Response Period’.

Note: Words in bold italics are defined in the Nursery and Reception Admissions Policies.
