Primary and secondary admissions prospectus
Fair Access Protocol
Every local authority is required to have a Fair Access Protocol. This ensures that, outside of the main primary and secondary admissions rounds, children who do not have a school place are placed in a suitable school as quickly as possible.
All schools, academies and free schools have agreed to participate in the protocol which means that they are sometimes required to admit more children than their published admission limit even if they are already considered to be full.
