Admission Arrangements for Community and Voluntary Controlled Primary and Secondary Schools and the Coordinated Admission Schemes for 2018-2019 and Online Admissions Update

The report of the Director of Children’s Services advises that the Council as the Local Authority (LA) is required to determine admission arrangements for community secondary schools and for community and voluntary controlled primary schools. The New School Admissions (England) Regulations (2003) also require the Council to have in place a coordinated scheme for admissions to all primary and secondary schools in 2018-19. Both schemes have been updated to reflect national guidance. No major changes are proposed to those arrangements currently in place. The secondary scheme has been updated to reflect the change in status of some schools. The Council is required to consult on its admission arrangements and to determine those arrangements by February of the preceding year.
