Have your say on Suffolk school admission process

Parents and carers are being invited to have their say on the school admission process proposed by Suffolk County Council.

Parents have until February 28 to comment on the draft admissions arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools in 2014/2015.

The proposed arrangements can be viewed online and the consultation can also be completed online at www.suffolk.gov.uk/your-council/decision-making/consultations/

The governing bodies of voluntary aided, foundation/trust schools, academies and free schools are responsible for admissions to their schools.

To view the arrangements for these schools contact the school directly.

Where schools have provided their admissions arrangements they can also be found at the same website.

To comment on these arrangements please contact the school directly.

Councillor Graham Newman, cabinet member for education and young people, said: “I would encourage parents and carers to go online to take a look at the proposed admissions procedures and tell us what they think.

“We know how passionate parents and carers are about their children’s education and this is a real opportunity for people to shape how the school admissions procedure works.”
