Annal Nayyar updates on – new School Admissions Code

A new School Admissions Code came into force on 19 December 2014. The new code introduces a number of freedoms and new requirements. It now allows admission authorities to give priority for children eligible for the various categories of pupil premium if the change is consulted on. Non-statutory advice on implementing this is available.

The code also extends the priority for admission to all previously looked after children and clarifies requirements on the admission of children outside their normal age group. Admission authorities must ensure these changes are reflected in the arrangements they determine by 15 April 2015.

Admission authorities must also follow the revised timetable for complying with a determination of a schools adjudicator, for determinations issued after 19 December 2014.
