Annal Nayyar reports on Changes to the school admissions code

This consultation seeks views on Department for Education proposals to revise the current School Admissions Code. The aim is to improve the fair and open allocation of places in maintained schools and academies, and to support social mobility by allowing admission authorities to give priority for school places to disadvantaged children. The changes are primarily intended to provide greater freedom. We are also proposing to make minor changes to improve the clarity of existing provisions. This consultation seeks views on the proposed changes. Limited timescales prevent more substantial changes; we are not, therefore, seeking views on wider changes to other elements of the Code at this stage.
