​​​​​Admission Scheme Information

​​Background​​​

  • The School Standards & Framework Act 1998, as amended by the Education Act 2002, places a statutory duty on every LEA to formulate a scheme for co-ordinating admission arrangements for all maintained secondary schools (but not special schools) in the LEA area.
  • The purpose of co-ordinated admission arrangements is to establish a mechanism for ensuring, so far as reasonably practicable, that every parent of a child living in the LA area who has applied for a school place in the normal admission round, receives an offer of one, and only one school place on the same day.
  • Offers of a single secondary school place will be made on 1 March 2019​.​
  • The LA is required to co-ordinate the admission arrangements for all secondary schools maintained by the authority, which includes foundation schools and academies whose Governing Bodies/Academy Trusts are the admission authorities. However, these arrangements will not affect the rights and duties of foundation schools and academies to se​t and apply their own admission arrangements and over-subscription criteria.​
