Determined admission arrangements 2021-22

Determined admission arrangements for the academic year 2021-22

Any changes to how admissions to a school are decided can only be made once a formal consultation has been carried out. For the admission year of entry that starts from September 2021, any consultation would have been carried out between October 2019 and January 2020. All admission arrangements must be published by 15 March 2020.

Decisions about admissions for community schools are made by the council. For academies and voluntary aided (church) schools, decisions are made by the governing body. All schools must publish their admissions arrangements on their school website.

The council is the admissions authority for seven community primary schools: Barrow Hill Junior, Edward Wilson, Essendine, George Eliot, Hallfield, Robinsfield infant, Queens Park

The council’s Pan London coordinated schemes for Reception and Primary to Secondary Transfer each year.

In accordance with Regulation 21 of the Regulations and Section 88 of the SSFA 1998, any person or body who considered that any maintained school or Academy's arrangements are unlawful, or not compliant with the Code or relevant law relating to admissions, can make an objection to the School Adjudicator. Objection must be submitted by 15 May 2020.
