Determined admission arrangements 2019-20

If you think that any maintained school or academy’s arrangements are unlawful or not in compliance with the School Admissions Code (external link) or law relating to admissions, you can make an objection to the Schools Adjudicator through the GOV.UK website. You have until 15 May 2018 to contact the adjudicator if you have an objection.

The relevant area for consultation on school admission arrangements

Each local authority is required to define a 'relevant area' in which admission authorities must consult annually on their proposed admission arrangements.

We are proposing that the current relevant area is retained for school years 2020/21; 2021/22 and 2022/23. A consultation is currently taking place and will close on Thursday 11 January 2018.

Co-ordinated admission scheme 

Lancashire has a co-ordinated admissions scheme which applies to families seeking school places for September 2019.

The scheme makes applying for a secondary school place more transparent for all parties involved in the admission process. As co-ordination is a legal requirement, all Lancashire schools are included within the arrangements.

A consultation on the proposed scheme for 2019/20 is currently taking place and will close on Thursday 11 January 2018.

The scheme will be published here when it is determined.

Community and voluntary controlled schools

Lancashire County Council is the admissions authority for community and voluntary controlled schools. There is one admissions policy for all these schools.

A consultation on the proposed arrangements for 2019/20 is currently taking place and will close on Thursday 11 January 2018.

The policy and admission numbers will be published here when they have been determined.

Voluntary aided and foundation schools, free schools and academies

These schools are their own admission authorities and set their own admission policies.

Determined admission arrangements from these schools will be added as we receive them. All schools must determine their arrangements by 28 February 2018 and send them to us by 15 March 2018.
