Admission Arrangements Consultation for 2022 – 2023

We are currently setting our Admissions Arrangements for 2022 – 2023.

Alverton Primary School is a member of Truro and Penwith Academy Trust (TPAT) which is the admissions authority for the school.  

The School Admissions Code (2014) requires all admission authorities to formally consult on any proposed changes to their Admission Arrangements every seven years. We are proposing a change to our oversubscription criteria as detailed in the Admission Arrangements for the year 2022 – 2023 (PDF document below).

The consultation process is open from 24th November 2020 to 19th January 2021 and will be open to:

  • parents of children between the ages of 2 and 18
  • other persons in the area who in the opinion of the Admission Authority have an interest in the proposal
  • all other admission authorities in the local area
  • Cornwall Council

Please send any responses to this consultation to the school secretary, Mrs Veryan Gill, by email to  

At the end of the consultation Alverton School and TPAT will consider all responses to the proposal and will determine its admission arrangements for 2022 – 2023 by the 26th January 2021, after which the arrangements will be published on our website.
