Proposal to extend the age range at St Giles School
London Borough of Croydon From 24 Feb 2020  to 31 Mar 2020
Feedback due 29 May 2020
Why are we doing this?

We would like to hear your views on our proposal to extend the age range at St Giles School from 4 - 19 years to 2 - 19 years from September 2020.

Extending the age range at St Giles School will allow for specialist education for children with profound and multiple learning difficulties, physical sensory medical needs from 2 years old. The proposal suggests the management of the specialist nursery class Crosfield Rainbow Group is transferred to St Giles School.  This will provide a clearer pathway from early years to school years for children in specialist education.

Croydon Fair Access Protocol
London Borough of Croydon From 18 Sep 2019  to 15 Mar 2020
Feedback due 30 Apr 2020
Why are we doing this?

We're updating our schools Fair Access Protocol for the first time since 2013. This updated version sets out the proposed expectations for Croydon schools.

Every local authority is required to have a Fair Access Protocol to ensure that children, especially the most vulnerable, who are unable to secure a school place through the in-year admission process, are offered a suitable school place as quickly as possible.

The Croydon Fair Access Protocol is based on the requirements of the School Admission Code (2014); departmental advice issued by the Department for Education; the regulations and guidance relating to Children Missing from Education (CME); and locally agreed guidance/practice.

It also takes into account the context of schools in Croydon and local practice.

Fair Access Protocols should not be used as a means to circumvent the normal in-year admissions process. A parent can apply for a place as an in-year admission at any point and is entitled to an appeal when a place is not offered.

The protocol applies to all state funded mainstream schools, including academies and free schools, located within the London Borough of Croydon.

Have your say on Croydon's landlord licensing scheme
London Borough of Croydon From 16 Dec 2019  to 09 Mar 2020
Feedback due 30 Apr 2020
Why are we doing this?

In 2015 we introduced a borough-wide, five-year landlord licensing scheme which will end on 30 September 2020. Following a paper to cabinet in October we are now consulting on proposals to continue to license private rented properties in Croydon. Consultation closes 11.59pm Monday 9 March.

Since the introduction of the current selective licensing scheme, a new law has come in requiring councils to gain permission from Government for any new landlord licensing schemes covering more than 20% of a borough. The proposed scheme must be supported by evidence for how it meets the criteria for landlord licensing.

Before making a decision about whether to submit our application to government, we want to understand the views of our residents, businesses, private tenants, landlords and all other Croydon groups on our proposals and their possible impacts.

  • Support outcomes
  • Rough sleeping
  • Young people

For each theme we've highlighted what we want to achieve, how we are going to do it and how we will measure success, as well as an action plan for the direction and delivery of the strategy.

Employer Recruitment of Disabled People Survey
London Borough of Croydon From 01 Aug 2019  to 31 Dec 2019
Feedback due 31 Jan 2020
Why are we doing this?

In the UK, there is legislation and a national campaign to facilitate the recruitment of disabled people (Equality Act 2010 and the Disability Confident Campaign respectively).  However, there is still a large percentage gap between the employment rate for disabled  people, which currently stands at 51.5% and non-disabled  people which stands at 81.7%.  The 30% difference gap has been around this mark for the last few years.  There are well documented barriers to employment and there seems to be a couple of main drivers for an employer to recruit disabled  people - either a legislative approach and/or a quota approach depending on the country that you live in.

The purpose of this survey is to research, from an employer's point of view, what works well from an international perspective, about the recruitment of disabled people.  It will help to understand what the barriers or concerns are as well as the motivators or legal requirements are from an employer's point of view.

By understanding what works well locally, nationally and internationally, we can look to take this information collected and learn from employers about what their needs and requirements are.

I would really appreciate your support by completing this survey, which will take less than 5 minutes of your time so that I can hear your views.

Many thanks
