Suffolk parents asked to have say over school admissions

Parents and carers across the county are being asked by Suffolk County Council to have their say over the proposed school admission process.

Parents have until Thursday, 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:

Councillor Graham Newman, Suffolk County Council’s 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.”
