School Admissions Code
- Department for Education and Skills
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
The School Admissions Code came into force on 28 February 2007 and applies to admissions to all maintained schools and Academies. Increasingly more schools are becoming autonomous self governing schools with governing bodies able to determine there own admission arrangements in response to the needs of the community. This Code and the related legislation will ensure that all admission authorities – whether local authorities or schools – operate in a fair way that promotes social equality and equity.
This Code has a stronger statutory basis than its predecessors. All admission authorities are required to act in accordance with its mandatory provisions. The Education and Inspections Act 2006 (ISBN 010544006X, available below) ends the practice of schools interviewing children and their families for school places.
Six appendices include 'Other Relevant Legislation', 'Admission Forums' and 'Guidelines for Local Authorities'.
