Consultation on schools admission arrangements for 2019/2020

We are consulting on proposed admission arrangements for community schools, in-year admissions and the coordinated primary and secondary admissions schemes for 2019/2020.  

There is one proposed change to the admissions criteria for community schools 2019/2020 which is to include priority for children of staff as an admissions criterion for 2019/2020.

There are no other proposed changes to the admission arrangements for community schools and the only significant change to the coordinated primary and secondary schemes from 2018/19 is to the dates in the Pan London timetable.
