Changes to the School Admissions Code
The Department of Education has recently confirmed that a new School Admissions Code will be in effect from 1st September 2021
The main purpose of the changes to the School Admission Code 2021 is to improve the in-year admission process, in particular for vulnerable children. The changes include introducing more detail on the process for managing in-year admissions; changes to improve the effectiveness of Fair Access Protocols; giving children adopted from state care outside of England equal admissions priority as children who were previously looked after in England; and clarification of which address to use for the admission of service or crown servant children. There are also further minor clarification changes.
These changes supersede information in the previous admissions policies for 2021-22 and 2022-23 which will be updated in due course.
