Admissions to be changed at Vale schools.
The Vale of Glamorgan Council has written to all parents of children attending its primary schools to inform them of proposals to change from the current feeder system to a catchment system.
Councillor Chris Elmore, the Vale council's cabinet member for children's services, said: "We believe the current feeder system, where children generally move to the secondary school linked to their primary school regardless of where they live, has several flaws.
"In particular, although almost all children attend the secondary school of their choice, the feeder system can mean that children who live inside a secondary school's catchment can lose out to children from outside the catchment."
He continued: "Parents will still be able to apply to the secondary school of their choice, with the school's catchment only being taken into consideration if the school is over subscribed."
Any changes to the Vale's admissions system will apply to all secondary schools except for Stanwell School and St Richard Gwyn Catholic High School who manage their own admissions policy.
