Full consultation took place in 2016. There are no significant changes to the proposed admission arrangements for 2021/2022 and therefore full public consultation is not required by law.
Informal feedback throughout the past year from schools and parents have led to minor changes of clarification to some points within the documentation.

Scrutiny Input: No change to previous admission policies and schemes

Planned Dates: Legislation states that the council must determine its 2021/22 admission arrangements by 28th February 2020 and publish by 15th March 2020
