Schemes for co-ordinated admissions

Schemes for coordinated admissions

Every council has a duty to publish schemes which set out the administrative arrangements to be followed for the co-ordination of applications for admission each September.

For admissions to primary and secondary schools, co-ordination  arrangements must cover all applicants living in the area of the local authority even though one or more of their preferences may include schools outside of the local authority.

The council is also required to submit a report to the school's adjudicator each year which covers a range of admission issues.
