St. Stephen's Admissions Consultation:
St.Stephen's primary in St.Margaret's recently consulted on changes to their admissions policy, including the creation of six "Foundation" places reserved for local churchgoers.
We welcome the fact that St. Stephen's Chair of Governors publicised the consultation beyond the school community, via a local newsletter. See here for his invitation to participate.

St. Stephen's was newly established in September 2012 as an all-through primary school. Before that it was a junior school, with Orleans Primary as its feeder infant school. If you want to read more on the background to that transition you can read the responses to the council's consultation here.
