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
It is a requirement of the School Admissions Code that all local authorities have a Fair Access Protocol. Fair Access Protocols ensure that unplaced and vulnerable children, and those who are having difficulty in securing a school place in-year, are allocated a school place as quickly as possible.
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:

Local Authority Report on School Admissions
It is a requirement of the School Admissions Code that each local authority produces an annual report on admissions for all schools in their area for which they co-ordinate admissions. 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:
