Today’s poll: Is it time to end sibling priority in school admissions?

The OSA has claimed schools should be wary of prioritising places for siblings because it discriminates against children inside catchment areas. Is it time to do away with it completely?

    MrJDexter SchoolsImprove shouldn’t stopping selection via the back door and free school admission policies be a higher priority?

    paulsnorman SchoolsImprove yes but not sure everyone really is eg politicians want their FS prog to succeed – distorts local situ

  3. paulsnorman

    MrJDexter SchoolsImprove absolutely. Imagine how pleased my colleagues were when an approved FS suddenly changed location to our LA!

    SchoolsImprove if family still live in the cat.area area priority for siblings makes sense, if they move then it’s lost for younger sibling

    SchoolsImprove what? No, especially not if residing in catchment area. Those who move in to get 1st child in then move out maybe. #edchat

    SchoolsImprove Any system can be abused but how am I meant to get 2 children to different primaries starting & finishing at the same time?

    SchoolsImprove No. There’s a very practical element involved for the parents, but also in my experience sibling support is paramount.

  9. CarolRowbotham

    SchoolsImprove no. It is clearly ridiculous to have children from the same family in different schools! Sibling rule makes total sense

    SchoolsImprove Actually it’s time to lose Ofsted &its reign of terror, so local people can believe in their local school & catchment area.
