Secondary School Admissions

Volume 487: debated on Monday 26 January 2009

22. To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what recent representations he has received on Government policy on admissions to secondary schools. (250629)

We undertook an extensive consultation last year on the revised School Admissions Code to strengthen the admissions system for primary and secondary schools and place children and parents at the centre of the process. We engaged with local authorities, faith groups and other key stakeholders prior to, and during the consultation, to seek their views on our proposals. The national consultation was well received with the majority of responses coming from parents. The full consultation report is available on the departmental website.
