This report provided details of the outcome of the consultation on the co-ordinated admission schemes and arrangements for primary and secondary schools.


The schemes, attached at Appendix 1 to the report, set out how the Local Authority would co-ordinate the processing of applications to schools and set out the relevant entry arrangements (oversubscription criteria) for Community and Voluntary Controlled schools.


It was noted Academies, Voluntary Aided and Foundation schools undertook their own consultation on entry arrangements (oversubscription criteria), but had to co-ordinate with the Local Authority schemes.


The Children and Young People Overview and Scrutiny Committee had considered the report on 14 January 2014 and its comments were set out in paragraph 7 of the report.

The Cabinet agreed the Secondary Admissions co-ordinated scheme and admission arrangements.


The Cabinet agreed the Primary Admissions co-ordinated scheme and admission arrangements.



The Council is required to undertake a detailed consultation exercise prior to the determination of its school admission arrangements and schemes. The decisions take into account the responses from consultation.
