Consultation on Admissions Policy for Admissions in 2019-2020

The directors of IJDS have decided to consult on the school's Admission Policies for the academic year 2019-2020. We are writing to all interested parties to alert them to the proposed changes and invite them to respond to the consultation if they so choose. A copy of the proposed changes in track changes is attached at the bottom.

The consultation is open until 24th January 2018.

If you have any comments on the proposed changes please email office@ijds.co.uk. 

The proposed changes are as follows:

1. Changes to the Catchment Area

​In the event of there being insufficient places for all applicants within any of the oversubscription criteria places will be assigned by lottery to those children whose home address given on the common application form submitted via e-admissions is within the Catchment Area set out below. The Directors are proprosing to extend the Catchment Area as follows:

Catchment Area:

This area is to be bounded by Great North Way (A1) turning left at Westside, turning right onto Colindeep Lane until it meets the M1, turning left at the M1 and following the M1 until it meets the North Circular Road, turning left onto the North Circular Road and at the Brent Cross Flyover turning right into Golders green, turning left into Highfield Avenue, left into Golders Green Road (A502), right into Princes Park Avenue, left into Bridge Lane, right into North Circular Road (A406), turning left into Regents Park Road (A598) until Gavel Hill, tunring left at Gavel Hill (A504) and then right into Dollis Avenue, turning left into Dollis Park, turning left into Lyndhurst Gardens, turning right into Claremont Park, following path at end of Claremont Park straight and then turning right onto Dollis Valley Green Walk, turning left at T-junction in the path until it reaches the end of the path onto Dollis Road, turning left into Dollis Road and then turning first left on Holders Hill Road, turning right at Manor Hall Avenue, turning left into Ashley Lane (including roads off Ashley lane) and right onto the Great North Way (A1) back to Westside. All properties inside this boundary and houses on either side of these named streets will be in the Catchment Area.

The reason for this proposed extension is that the Directors consider this slightly larger catchment area reflects both the addresses of current IJDS pupils together with addresses of children from applications made during the last 5 years.

2. Changes to the way applications are located within the lottery.

The Directors are proposing that there should be a single lottery for all applicants for each relevant oversubscription criteria. At present there are two lotteries. The Directors no longer see any reason for having two lotteries and consider all applications should be drawn from a single lottery for each oversubscription criteria where relevant.
