Please note the Arrangements below have been amended and determined in August 2021 to meet the requirements of the new School Admission Code which comes into effect 1st September 2021. As the only amendments are due to the changes in the Code we MUST comply and no consultation is therefore required. The changes only relate to the addition of priority for those children who are or have been looked after or in care of an authority outside of England.
