Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: Yes
The Local Authority is responsible for setting admission arrangements for all Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools. It must “Determine” and publish its admission arrangements every year. There is a requirement to consult on the arrangements once every seven years unless there are significant changes proposed.
The arrangements were consulted upon last year for 2021/22, therefore this key decision is to determine the arrangements for 2022/23.
The recommendation to approve the proposed admission arrangements for 2022/23 will ensure that the Authority carries out its statutory duty to consult and determine its admission arrangements for the 2022/23 academic year, including:
3. The statutory Primary and Secondary co-ordinated admission schemes.
The Admissions Review was a City-wide consultation which asked whether the current admission arrangements were still supported and were still fit for purpose. There continues to be a high level of support for the current arrangements and apart from the minor amendments to existing catchment areas, there have not been any alternative arrangements considered.
