Consultation on school admission arrangements 2020/2021

This consultation has now closed

Consultation on school admission arrangements for the 2020 to 2021 academic year

Each year, schools must decide on their admission arrangements for the coming year. If the arrangements change, there must be a public consultation before the arrangements are decided upon. The Council is holding a consultation on behalf of most of the Plymouth schools and also on behalf of Sparkwell All Saints Primary School which is in Devon. We would like your views on the admission proposed arrangements. The admission arrangements will include things like how places are allocated, the number of places schools have and how they will decide how to prioritise applications if there are more applications for the school than there are places available.

If you would like to know more about the legal background to the consultation and would like to know which schools we are consulting for, please read the background document.

The consultation will run from 10 December 2018 and will close on 20 January 2019.
