What could change?

Most pupils attend their catchment school and most schools are not oversubscribed. Therefore, the proposed changes will not affect most pupils or schools. The proposed limited changes to the schools Admission and Placing Requests Policy will offer more transparency and fairness over the allocation of placing requests.
