Proposed admission arrangements for the 2020 to 2021 school year

Proposed admission arrangements for the 2020/21 school year

The Local Authority consulted on a proposal to change the 2020/21 admission arrangements for community schools in Nottingham City from those approved for the 2019/20 school year.

These arrangements are for pupils who will be starting school for the first time in the 2020 autumn term, or changing from one school to another between September 2020 and July 2021.

Community schools in Nottingham are the ones run by Nottingham City Council. This means that the Council is responsible for offering or refusing places at these schools.

The consultation has now closed and a summary of the comments received during the consultation period will be included in a report to the Council’s Executive Board in February 2019.  The Executive Board will consider the report and approve the determined admission arrangements at that meeting.  Details of the determined arrangements will be published on this website in March 2019.
