School admissions were an important part of the council’s work; there needed to be a transparent, consistent system that parents and carers can have confidence in. The Government regulates admissions through its statutory School Admissions Code 2021.

 

The council must determine the admission arrangements for entry to community and voluntary controlled schools in the following academic year, every year. The 2023 admission arrangements were almost unchanged from previous years. As there were no significant changes to the proposed admission arrangements for 2023/2024 and therefore full public consultation was not required by law. It was recommended that Cabinet approve the proposed admission arrangements which have previously been subject to consultation.

 

The council also had to prepare a co-ordinated admissions scheme for all maintained schools and academies so that parents only need to apply once – this included applications for infant/ primary schools for the reception year, transfer from infant to junior school and secondary schools at year 7.
