2016 Consultation Arrangements

Any voluntary-aided school, free school or academy planning to amend their admission arrangements for implementation in the 2016 admissions round, should be consulting now. Your proposed arrangements need to be available for comment or objection for a period of eight weeks which must finish by the end of February 2015.

Where the admission arrangements have not changed from last year, there is no requirement to consult, subject to the requirement that admission authorities must consult on their admission arrangements at least once every seven years, even if there have been no changes during that period.

All admission authorities must determine (i.e. formally agree) admission arrangements every year, even if they have not changed from previous years and a consultation has not been required.

Admission authorities must determine admission arrangements for entry in September 2016 by 15 April 2015. Once admission authorities have determined their admission arrangements, they must publish a copy of their determined arrangements on their website displaying them for the whole year.

Admission authorities must also send a copy of their full, determined arrangements to Stuart Berwick, Head of School Admissions. Stuart will be circulating the community school consultation document at the beginning of January.

He will include the proposed arrangements for any admission authority consulting along with this document.

Admissions Review November 2013

Independent Admissions Review

This report presents the finding and recommendations from the Independent Admissions Review undertaken by Graham Carter.

In November 2013 Councillor Mason outlined to Children’s Schools and Family Scrutiny Committee and to Admissions Forum a plan to commission an independent review of Admissions Services in Camden to look at admissions criteria, fraudulent applications and to meet with stakeholders to discuss admissions issues.

This review links to the Camden Plan by developing services that provide a high standard and value for money. It will also help to deliver services that are right first time and require fewer resources to resolve problems.Click below to download a copy of the report.
