Co-ordinated Admission Schemes
All Councils are required to have a scheme for co-ordinating admission applications to schools within their area.
Co-ordinated schemes simplify the admission process for parents whilst reducing the likelihood of any child being left without a school place. Co-ordination ensures that, as far as is reasonably practicable, every parent of a child living in a local authority area who has applied to a maintained school or academy is sent one offer of a school place by their 'home' local authority (the Council where they live).

Fair Access Protocol
Fair Access Protocols (formerly referred to as ‘hard to place pupil protocols’) exist to make that access to education is secured quickly for children who have no school place, and to ensure that all schools in an area admit their fair share of children with challenging behaviour. Along with devolved funding and responsibility for alternative provision, an agreed protocol encourages schools to work together in partnership to improve behaviour and tackle persistent absence.
You can download a copy of our current Fair Access Protocol or you can request that a copy be sent to you by contacting the School Admissions service at Rutland County Council, Catmose, Oakham, Rutland LE15 6HP or by telephoning 01572 722 577. You may also email a request for the protocol to firstname.lastname@example.org

The report must be published locally and a copy sent to the Schools Adjudicator by 30 June each year. Our most recent report can be found below:
