Admission arrangements consultation

North Somerset Council are consulting on the Primary and Secondary Coordinated Schemes. It is available from 28 November 2022 to 31 January 2023. You can view and respond to the consultation on our consultation portal.

School admission arrangements are policies that set out how school places are allocated.

We set our admission process after consulting with schools, governors and other interested parties. We consult on proposed admission arrangements for all our schools, and for some own admission schools.

The area we have to consult with schools about their proposed admissions arrangements before they are finalised is called the relevant area. We have to publish the relevant area(s) for admission policy consultations.

If you want to make an objection, you can do this under the School Standards and Framework Act 1998(a) and section 29(5) of the Education Act 1996(b). You must provide your name and address to the Office of the Schools Adjudicator.

It is a statutory requirement for us to make an annual report to the adjudicator.

Coordinated schemes

We are responsible for determining the coordinated schemes that are used to administer the admissions process each year.

Admission arrangements and policies

The determined admission arrangements for a school are the arrangements that set out how a school allocates places.

We set the determined admission arrangements for all schools for which we are the admission authority, that is community and voluntary controlled schools.

For academies (including free schools), foundation schools and voluntary-aided schools, each school governing body or Academy Trust is their own admission authority and are responsible for determining their own admission arrangements.
