Changes to the School Admissions Code

The Department of Education has recently confirmed that a new School Admissions Code will be in effect from 1st September 2021

The main purpose of the changes to the School Admission Code 2021 is to improve the in-year admission process, in particular for vulnerable children. The changes include introducing more detail on the process for managing in-year admissions; changes to improve the effectiveness of Fair Access Protocols; giving children adopted from state care outside of England equal admissions priority as children who were previously looked after in England; and clarification of which address to use for the admission of service or crown servant children. There are also further minor clarification changes.

If parents/carers wish to apply for a school place, applications can be made at The Local Authority will confirm the outcome of the application in writing within 15 school days.
