Learning Community Trust

Determined Admissions to Learning Community Trust Academies

If parents are interested in a place for their child at Wrekin View, they will need to apply online using this link: 


Consultation for proposed changes for September 2021/22 and 2022/3

The 2014 School Admissions Code requires admission authorities to give top priority in their oversubscription criteria to looked after children and previously looked after children who had ceased to be looked after due to an adoption, child arrangements or special guardianship order having been made in respect of them. This priority was limited to previously looked after children in England.

Paragraph 1.7 of the 2021 School Admission Code expands the definition of previously looked after children to include those children who were in state care outside of England but who were then adopted. State care is further defined as being in the care of public authorities, religious authorities or other organisations that act in the public benefit and could encompass a wide range of institutions.

LCT is consulting on the proposal to expand the definition of looked after children as determined by the new code which will be a statutory requirement for admitting authorities to abide by from September 2021. LCT as a MAT is an admitting authority and needs to abide by this legislation.

The proposed changes are shown in the oversubscription criteria for each academy.

If you wish to respond to this consultation, then please send you views and comments to The Company Secretary by the 20th August 2021.

The Learning Community Trust has determined the admissions to all its academies for applications for places for the academic year 2021-2 and 2022-23

The Trust has six mainstream academies Charlton Secondary School, Ercall Wood Academy, Hadley Learning Community Primary Phase, Hadley Learning Community Secondary Phase, Wrekin View Primary School and Crudgington Primary School

If there are more applications than places for these academies, then the following oversubscription criteria apply for each academy.


 Wrekin View Primary School

Children with an Education, Health and Care Plan which specifically names the school will be allocated places.

After which applications will be considered and in the case of oversubscribed schools the following criteria will be applied:

Determined oversubscription criteria for 2021/22 and 2022/3 for Wrekin View Primary School

A 'looked after child' or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, child arrangements, or special guardianship order including those who appear to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted. A looked after child is a child who is (a) in the care of a local authority, or (b) being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions (see the definition in Section 22(1) of the Children Act 1989).


and then:

2. Children who live in the school’s defined attendance area.

If places are unavailable for all of these local children, then places will be given first to:

a) those children who have exceptional health reasons where there is written medical evidence that admission to the school is essential for their medical wellbeing;

and then

b) those children who will have on the day of admission a brother(s), sister(s), step brother(s), step sister(s),half-brother(s) or half-sister(s) living as a family at the

same address and who attend the school;


c) other children living in the school’s attendance area.

3. Children of staff at the school

a) where the member of staff has been employed at the school for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made, and/or

b) the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.

4. Any places which remain available will be allocate to children living outside of the school’s attendance area on the priority order 2a)-b).


If there are insufficient places for all children in any one category, places will be allocated on the basis of distance between home and school as measured by straight line distance with those children closest to the school having priority.


Distances are measured using the Council’s computerised mapping system.


Definitions used in the above criteria


Distance - If there are insufficient places for all children in any one category, places will be allocated on the basis of distance between home and school as measured by straight line distance with those children closest to the school having priority. Distances are measured using the Council’s computerised mapping system.

Siblings - A sibling connection is defined as a brother or sister, step-brother or step-sister, half-brother or half-sister, living at the same address as part of the same family unit and of compulsory school age (i.e. 5-16 years). Adopted siblings are also included. Older siblings must be attending the school on the date the younger sibling is due to start. However, cousins or other relatives who take up residence in a home in order to establish an ‘in catchment area’ address will not be given priority under the sibling criterion.

Uniform Policy

September 2020


Learning Together To Achieve Forever





“School uniforms help to define the ethos of a school and the standards expected. They help give pupils pride in their school, and make them ambassadors for their school in the community” (DfES 5 Year Strategy for Children and Learners, 2006).


Why do we need a uniform?


A school uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school and setting an appropriate tone.


We believe a uniform is important for the following reasons:


  • It can instill pride
  • It can support positive behaviour and discipline
  • Pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome
  • Uniform can nurture cohesion and promote good relations between different groups of pupils
  • It can encourage identity with, and support for, school ethos
  • Children are protected from social pressures to dress in a particular way
  • Above all, many schools believe that school uniform supports effective teaching and learning.


What will it look like?


  • School will authorise a local business to sell a selection of quality school clothing items with the school logo at reasonable prices, currently Baker & Sons in Wellington. (See Appendix 1)
  • Children will also be able to wear plain (no school badge) providing it is the appropriate colours.
  • Children in Years 5 and 6 will be expected to wear a shirt and tie with a Blazer optional. The school Tie will be an optional item for younger pupils. 
  • The only jewellery allowed is a single ear stud in each ear. They must be removed for all PE lessons.
  • The wearing of temporary tattoos will not be permitted, with the exception of Mehndi for special occasions.
  • Hair should be neat and tidy with no extremes of style or colour. Long hair should be tied back during PE lessons for health and safety. 
  • Make up and cosmetics are not considered appropriate or consistent with our school uniform. The school does not permit such products to be worn by any children, unless there is a specific event for which the Headteacher has given permission.
  • The school wants all children to grow into healthy adults. We believe that it is dangerous for children to wear shoes that have platform soles or high heels, so we do not allow children to wear such shoes in our school. Neither do we allow children to wear trainers to school; this is because we think that this footwear is appropriate for sport or for leisurewear, but is not in keeping with the smart appearance of a school uniform.


Who will monitor it?


  • All Staff will monitor the correct wearing of school uniform.
  • Children will be expected to wear the correct school uniform.
  • Parents are responsible to inform the school, either in writing or verbally if for any reason a child is unable to wear the correct uniform.
  • The Governing body should be receptive to any reasonable complaint from parents/carers concerning uniform, handling it respectfully and should aim to arrive at a mutually agreeable outcome.
  • The school will follow the DfE guidelines and not consider exclusion from the school where a pupil fails to comply with the school’s rules on uniform.
  • Children who repeatedly fail to wear the correct uniform:
    • Member of staff will speak to the parents to discuss possible reasons why uniform is not being worn.
    • Child may lose Dojo Points.
    • Repeated loss of Dojo Points may mean further meetings with parents.

Dear Parents/Carers,

From the start of the new academic year (September 2022) we will be using a new catering provider. I am very pleased to inform you all that Caterlink Ltd, will be responsible for providing school meals for the pupils at Wrekin View. This does inevitably mean there that will be some changes, I only change that the children will see is the some different menu items and also some new additions for your children to enjoy.

I have included some information that I hope will make it easier for you to understand.
Payments – Dinners will remain £2.45 per day.
Payments for school dinners will now need to be made through the Parent Mail App. Many of you will already have the ParentMail App downloaded. Once you have downloaded it and logged into the app, you select the Accounts option, and you can select the school dinners menu and top up the account. If any of you have credit on the previous Telford and Wrekin School Dinner App, this money will be transferred to your Parent Mail account.

I have included a copy of the 3 week menu in this pack for you to look at. Many of the items will remain, roast dinner on a Wednesday, Fish on a Friday, sandwich option daily, but I also want to introduce more variety including jacket potato with filling, and also some extra packed lunch options.
Pupils will continue to choose on the morning what they want for dinner.

Infant Free School Meals
Pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will get a free school meal, and this will continue, there will be no charge for children in these Year groups.

Year 3
As this is the first year parents may be asked to pay for school meals, Caterlink Ltd are providing free meals for every child in Year 3 the first two weeks of term. This should allow families to organise any eligibility for Free Meals if they think they are entitled to it.  We are more than happy to support applications for this.

Home sandwiches ban

Inline with Caterlink, We are beginning to phase out home sandwiches, beginning with Reception in September. No children in Reception will be allowed to bring in home sandwiches. I am confident that the increased and improved menu choices, additional snacks provided, and dietary support that Caterlink can provide, we will make sure that no children go hungry during the day.
If you do have any questions of queries regarding this, I am more than happy to discuss these arrangements in more detail

Thank you for your continued support.

Mr Adrian Pembleton
