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 2020 to contact the adjudicator if you have an objection.
Each local authority is required to define a 'relevant area' in which admission authorities must consult annually on their proposed admission arrangements.
The relevant area is determined after a consultation with local admission authorities and is reviewed periodically. A report was presented and approved by Cabinet on 1 February 2018 and the relevant area was confirmed for consultations relating to school years 2020/21, 2021/22 and 2022/23.

Lancashire has a co-ordinated admissions scheme which applies to families seeking school places for September 2021.
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.
The aim of the co-ordinated scheme is to provide all parents with an offer of a single school place on the same day.
This scheme will be considered and determined by the Cabinet following a consultation on the proposed scheme.
Lancashire County Council is the admissions authority for community and voluntary controlled schools. There is one admissions policy for all these schools.
These arrangements will be considered and determined by the Cabinet following a consultation on the proposed scheme.
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 on or by 28 February 2020 and send them to us by 15 March 2020.
