Webinar: Admissions - what does a compliant and well planned consultation look like?
The governing bodies of maintained schools are required to consult on the admission arrangements they are proposing, if these include any changes from previous years. Similarly, the academy trusts (proprietors) of academies are required to consult if there are proposed changes to the academy admission arrangements.
It is important that local authorities and admission authorities work together to ensure that school admission arrangements meet the needs of all parents and children and, therefore, consultation is an important part of the process in formulating and determining arrangements.
In this webinar Richard Freeth, education lawyer, goes into detail about:
- the consultation procedure
- making changes for the 2017 entry
- evidencing responses
- the role of the OSA
- prohibited arrangements.
