Admission Arrangements: What you need to know

The “admission authority” for every school and academy must formally determine their admission arrangements by 28 February every year for the following year’s September intake, even where no changes are proposed. Where changes are proposed, the admission authority must publicly consult for a minimum of six weeks between 1 October and 31 January prior to determination. Each year, our School Support Service team receives a significant number of requests for review of admission arrangements, often close to the deadline for commencing consultation, limiting the amount of time available for remedial action.
