The variation requested is that " In the event that during the period specified for attendance at worship the church [or, in relation to those of other faiths, relevant place of worship] 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 in relation to those of other faiths, relevant place of worship] or alternative premises have been available for public worship".  

 

This request is made in order that parents seeking admission to the above academies can readily determine what the admissions oversubscription criteria are and how they may be met, and thereby enable the Trust Board to deal lawfully, fairly and transparently with admissions matters in the exceptional circumstances of the COVID19 pandemic.
