School Admission Arrangements for the 2023/24 Academic Year

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 the 2023/24 academic year.  The key decision is to determine the Council’s Admission Arrangements for Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools.


To consult on the admission arrangements for 2023/24 including any proposed reductions to admission numbers in line with the City wide strategy to manage falling pupil numbers at Reception age.
