Admission arrangements for 2019

Admission authorities must set (‘determine’) admission arrangements every year. Where changes are proposed to admission arrangements, the admission authority must first publicly consult on those arrangements. If no changes are made to admission arrangements, they must be consulted on at least every seven years.

Consultation must be for a minimum of eight weeks and must take place between 1 November and 1 March of the year before those arrangements are to apply. For example: for arrangements that apply to applications in 2018 (entry in September 2019), consultation must be completed by 1 March 2019. This consultation period allows parents, other schools, religious authorities and the local community to raise any concerns about proposed admission arrangements.
