The local authority is currently considering the admission arrangements for pupils entering nursery classes, reception classes and Year 7 of community primary schools and those primary and secondary academies in the borough who are adopting the local authority admission policy for entry in 2023/24. 
Consultation on the proposed policies and admission numbers will open on Monday 13 December 2021 for the required six week period and closes on Monday 24 January 2022.
On this page you will find the following local authority consultation documents in relation to community primary schools and those primary and secondary academies who are adopting the local authority admission policy. Parents/carers of school-age children and relevant pre-schoolers and community groups who may have an interest are invited to submit their views on the proposals.

Voluntary aided schools/academies and academy schools not adopting the LA policy are responsible for determining their own individual admission policies, these should be available on the individual school/academy website and by request from the individual school.
