The governors of Greythorn Primary School proposed that Greythorn should change its catchment area for admission applications from September 2018/19.
There were three main reasons why the change was proposed; firstly, the catchment area for Greythorn ended at the County/City boundary. Wilford Village was excluded from the catchment area by virtue of the county boundary, despite it being adjacent to the Compton Acres estate, where a significant number of our children live. The governors felt that this was an arbitrary boundary, which should be extended to the more obvious border provided by the A52 and the River Trent.
Secondly, Greythorn would provide (for parents in Wilford) a non-faith alternative choice of Primary school. Finally, the change of catchment area would bring the catchment area of the combined family of schools in line with our secondary school: The West Bridgford School.
The consultation ran between Monday 5th December until Friday 27th January. Following this period, the governing body met to consider all the evidence gathered. The final admissions arrangements for 2018/19 and the response to the consultation are detailed in the 'Policies & Key Documents' section of the website.
