Secondary School admission process change - Sept 21 admission

We the undersigned petition the council to Allow parents to amend the order of secondary schools preferences for admission Sept 2021 once the results of the selection exams are known.

The delay of the secondary school selection exams due to government guidelines during the current covid crisis means that parents are having to make secondary school preference choices without knowing the outcome of these exams.

Other authorities such as Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Enfield and Barnet are all allowing changes to application forms once selective results have been published. Parents in Trafford should be afforded the same opportunity. At the moment parents are expected to choose schools without being fully informed.

This ePetition ran from 06/10/2020 to 25/10/2020 and has now finished.
