Essex school launches consultation amid plans to change admissions arrangements

A THREE-MONTH consultation period has been launched on a Saffron Walden school’s proposal to alter its admission arrangements.

Governors at RA Butler Schools have agreed to consult on plans to take the village of Little Walden out of the RA Butler priority catchment area from the 2012/13 academic year.

The agreement came because school transport from Little Walden is only available to children attending St Mary’s Primary School.

The consulation documents can be viewed on the school’s website at and copies are also available form the school. The consultation period will close on February 28.

Comments should be submitted in writing to the: RA Butler infant and Junior Schools, South Road, Saffron Walden, Essex CB11 3AE or by e-mail to:
