At the Prince Albert Community Trust (PACT) we are always looking for ways to ensure that we have the most talented and dedicated staff working with your children. You will have seen media reports over the past couple of years that refer to the ‘teacher shortage’ in the country. It is becoming more difficult for schools across the country to recruit new staff and hold on to good people that they already employ. The Trustees and I are always looking for ways to attract the best staff but also to ensure that we keep the excellent colleagues that we already have. One of the things that we think will help to do this is to change our admissions criteria. The Trustees of Prince Albert Community Trust wish to make an amendment in respect of the admissions criteria for the 2018-19 academic year.
The amendment under consideration is as follows:
Criteria 3: Children of a member of staff employed across the Prince Albert Community Trust
This will allow the small number of staff who wish to send their children to a PACT school (having worked for us for at least 2 years) to do so. It may be that they live in another town and would otherwise have to leave to find a post closer to home when their child starts school, it may simply be that they want the best possible school for their child. Our full admissions criteria with the variance included is available here.
This letter signals the start of the consultation process which will run until 31st January 2017. If you would like to express your views as part of this consultation then please email email@example.com alternatively you can pass on hand written comments to the school office in an envelope clearly marked ‘Admissions Consultation.’ I look forward to seeing your comments and feeding them back to the Trust Board. The Board will give full consideration to your comments before deciding on any changes to our current admissions arrangements.

These are some of the children who have been elected to be part of the school council. They have completed a manifesto informing their peers why they would be great for the job, results were in and this is who they voted for to represent the pupils views. They will be working on school improvements such as the Community, Health and safety, Safe guarding and online safety.
