George Spencer Academy – Admission Arrangements 2023/2024

The DfE Admission Code requires admission authorities to consult on their admission arrangements at least once every 7 years, even if there have been no changes during that period. The Code outlines who must be consulted.

The Spencer Academies Trust, of which George Spencer academy is a part, is proposing changes to the academy’s admissions arrangements from those which currently apply. We have made minor changes to wording to clarify points, removed the criterion of attendance at a Spencer Academy Trust School for all schools apart from Sunnyside; amended the service family criterion to include a catchment area; and included a criterion for residing in a catchment area. The closing date of the consultation period is the end of Thursday, 9 December 2021.

Stapleford Town Council Announces Net Carbon Zero Status

Stapleford Town Council declared a climate emergency in September 2019 in response to reports by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).  A report produced by the Council in Spring 2020 calculated the Council’s carbon foot-print to be 24 tonnes of CO2 equivalents for the year up to February 2020.

The Council recently agreed to offset the footprint by using an accredited scheme of tree planting in the East Midlands area. The Council acknowledges that offsetting should not be wholly relied upon as a solution, but until other energy saving initiatives are in place, felt it should be responsible for its emissions. The Council has already begun looking into ways of further reducing its footprint and becoming more energy efficient.

The Council is now looking to share its knowledge and expertise in calculating carbon footprints with local businesses and the community. The aim is to help reduce the carbon emissions for the whole of Stapleford as soon as possible.
