School admission arrangements for the 2023-24 school year


As a community school, the admission authority for Newport Primary School is East Riding of Yorkshire Council.  Each year admission authorities review the admission arrangements for their schools, and then formally set – or ‘determine’ – these arrangements.  Admission arrangements include the number of places made available for Reception – called the published admission number – as well as how preferences for places will be considered if there are more preferences than places available – called the oversubscription criteria.  Together these details are sometimes known as the ‘admissions policy’.  

If an admission authority wants to make any changes to their admission arrangements, the admission authority must consult on any proposed changes to those arrangements before determining the arrangements.  Even where changes are not proposed, a consultation must take place at least every seven years.

As some changes are proposed this year, between Tuesday 2 November and Tuesday 14 December, the Council is consulting on the admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools for the 2023-24 school year.  All these draft arrangements are available online at:

Whilst the vast majority of the admission arrangements for 2023-24 are procedurally identical to those for previous years, five schools, including Newport Primary School, have requested a change to their admission number for the start of the 2023-24 school year.

The change proposed at Newport Primary School is to increase the admission number from 20 to 25.  If approved, this change would not come into force for the year group starting in September 2022, but only from September 2023.

During this period the Council are interested in the views of any residents, schools, parents/carers or other interested parties, and would ask that all views be expressed via the online survey accessible from the page link above or the link below.The survey will go live on 2 November and will close on 14 December.
