The School Admissions Code requires all Admission Authorities to consult annually when there are proposals to alter existing admission arrangements.
The LA is the Admissions Authority for all Community and Voluntary Controlled schools as well as having overall responsibility for co-ordinating admissions with all other admission authorities.
This consultation is for the Local Authority Admission Arrangements for VC and Community Schools and the primary and secondary co-ordinated schemes as well as on behalf of a number of own admission authority schools and academies. It commences on 15 December 2017 and will end on 31 January 2018.
