Admissions to schools in Suffolk for the 2020/2021 school year

Suffolk County Council held a consultation on the proposed admission arrangements to schools in Suffolk for the 2020/2021 school year.

Between 1 October and 12 November 2018, Suffolk County Council asked for your views about its proposed admission arrangements for the 2020/2021 school year. You can find details of these admission arrangements below.

We were not proposing to make any significant changes to the admission arrangements for the 2020/2021 school year. 

There were only minor changes proposed to the Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme to simplify and clarify some wording in the Scheme but there were no proposed changes to the content.

There were also no changes proposed to the admissions oversubscription criteria for community and voluntary controlled schools or the Supplementary Information Form (SIF) except to amend any dates.

We did ask for your views on potential future changes to the oversubscription criteria and the continued use of catchment areas to rank applications. If it is decided to progress a change to the oversubscription criteria for community and voluntary controlled schools, any new proposals would have to be consulted on from October 2019. If any new proposals are agreed they would apply from the 2021/2022 school year.
