The proposed changes will ensure a more even distribution of school places to meet future demand for pupils within a defined catchment area requiring a school place. The amendment will prioritise those living closest to a primary school where the number of applications from within catchment area exceeds the number of places available that will support attendance at a child's local school.

The Vale of Glamorgan Councils Cabinet determined the Councils admission arrangements on the 23 March 2020 for the academic year 2021/22 and approved changes to include a minor change to the oversubscription criteria for community primary schools to ensure that those living in a school catchment area will be a high priority for admission to school and a revision to secondary school catchment area in order to align secondary school catchment areas to better match the capacity at secondary schools. The arrangements will become policy for the academic year 2021/22.
