School priority admission areas

Mike Thompson made this Rhyddid Gwybodaeth request to Brent Borough Council as part of a batch sent to 19 authorities

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

We're waiting for Mike Thompson to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Brent Borough Council,

I'm writing to ask whether you could provide me with the priority admission area data for all state schools (of all phases) within your local authority, which may be being used by a school catchment/priority area checker on your website.

I note that other local authorities publish this data publicly, like Hampshire County Council, Leeds City Council and Nottingham City Council.

It would be great if you could provide this information in an electronic, reusable format such as GeoJSON, KML or SHP.

I am asking for this in order to supplement a website I have created to help parents find out more about schools near them. You can see it here:
http://admissionsday.co.uk

Please do email me or call me on the number below if you wish to discuss this request, particularly if there are any complications that could lead to a refusal.

Yours faithfully,

Mike Thompson

Dear ýMr. Thompsonþ

 

Freedom of Information Act 2000

 

I can confirm that the information requested is held by Brent Council. I
have detailed below the information that is being released to you.

 

I'm writing to ask whether you could provide me with the priority
admission area data for all state schools (of all phases) within your
local authority, which may be being used by a school catchment/priority
area checker on your website.

I note that other local authorities publish this data publicly, like
Hampshire County Council, Leeds City Council and Nottingham City Council.

It would be great if you could provide this information in an electronic,
reusable format such as GeoJSON, KML or SHP.

I am asking for this in order to supplement a website I have created to
help parents find out more about schools near them. You can see it here:

Please find attached Brent school catchment areas in SHP file format.

Please note;

The catchment area is the defined neighbourhood in which a school is
sited. It is generally bounded by major roads and/or railway/tube lines.
The catchment areas were defined by the Local Authority and are designed
to ensure that each address in the borough falls into the catchment area
of one school. Living within a school’s catchment area does not guarantee
a place at that school, although it does increase the likelihood that
every child has a realistic chance of being offered a local school, if
they choose to apply for it. Children living within the catchment area
have a higher priority according to the admission arrangements than
children living outside the area even if the straight line distance from
the school to their home address is further.

Originally the catchment areas were set for community primary schools
only. Some former community schools that have converted into academies
have retained their original catchment areas as part of their admission
arrangements, although there is no requirement for them to do so. This
information therefore is not a complete picture of school place options
for parents. We would advise that parents are posted to our admissions
pages where they can receive comprehensive advise for apply for a school
place. The local authority will be seeking to review the catchment areas
through public consultation of the community school admission arrangements
for 2021.

 

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the
right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be
submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your
original letter and should be addressed to:

 

Brent Civic Centre
Engineers Way
Wembley HA9 0FJ

[email address]

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
The Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane,
Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
Phone: 0303 123 1113
Website: www.ico.gov.uk

 

I will now close your request as of this date.

Yours sincerely
