Consultation on Admission Arrangements Sept 2020

The Laurus Trust is carrying out a consultation on Laurus Ryecroft’s admission arrangements for September 2020. Admission arrangements are the overall procedure, practices and oversubscription criteria used in deciding the allocation of school places. The consultation is being carried out by the Laurus Trust which is the school’s Admission Authority. The proposed admission arrangements are published on the school’s website in the School Information/Admissions section and can be viewed and/or downloaded. The consultation will run for six school weeks from Monday 26 November 2018 to Friday 18 January 2019. This excludes the two-week Christmas break. Any comments on the proposed admission arrangements should be sent in writing to Mrs Julie Parry (PA to Head of School), Laurus Ryecroft, Cryer Street, Droylsden, Manchester, M43 7LF or by email to enquiries@laurusryecroft.org.uk
