Consultation on proposed Admission Arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools 2019-2020
All schools must have admission arrangements that set out clearly how children will be admitted to schools, including sixth forms. Admission arrangements must include the criteria that will be applied if there are more applications for a school than there are places available. Northumberland County Council is the admission authority for all community and voluntary controlled schools in Northumberland.
Why are we consulting?
The Admissions Code 2014 requires admission authorities to consult on their admission arrangements once every seven years even if there are no changes proposed. This consultation will apply to the admission arrangements for entry into schools, including sixth forms, in September 2019.
