Admission Arrangements Consultation
The Lincolnshire School Admission Arrangements Consultation comes under the Government’s Code on School Admissions (see ‘Websites’).
Admission authorities must consult whenever they want to make changes to their policies or every 7 years if there are no proposed changes.
The County Council is the Admission Authority for Community and Voluntary Controlled schools. In Academies, Free Schools, Foundation and Voluntary Aided schools, the Governors or the Academy Trust are the Admission Authority.
Lincolnshire County Council consults on its admission arrangements for 6 weeks beginning on the first Monday on November. In 2016 the consultation is about the proposed arrangements for the intake to schools in September 2018. Other admission authorities may use a different timetable.
All parents of children aged between 2 and 18 are entitled to respond to the consultation on the proposed arrangements.
After the close of the consultation Admission Authorities must take account of any responses received to their proposed policies and determine their final admission arrangements.
The Code states that Admission Authorities must determine final admission arrangements by 28 February and publish them within 14 days. We will publish all final policies on this website as quickly as we can once we receive them..
Under the government’s school admissions code any person or body who considers that any maintained school or Academy’s arrangements are unlawful, or not in compliance with the Code or relevant law relating to admissions, can make an objection to the Schools Adjudicator provided it is done by 15 May 2017.
Any objections can be made in writing to:
Office of the Schools Adjudicator
