Consultation on admissions to schools in Suffolk for the 2022/2023 school year

From 1 October to 12 November 2020, Suffolk County Council is seeking your views about its proposed admission arrangements for the 2022/2023 school year.

You can find details of these admission arrangements below. The proposals include plans to:

  • amend the oversubscription criteria for voluntary controlled schools. A family and/or child must be practising members of the Church of England (or other church within the Worldwide Anglican Communion) for a minimum period of one year for this criteria to apply. There is also clarification on what to do if churches are closed due to COVID-19.
  • treat a twin, triplet or other multiple birth as siblings as soon as a school named on the Education, Health and Care plan. This does not apply to siblings of children in a specialist unit or a specialist resource base for Hearing Impaired provision or a nursery, because they do not meet the sibling definition in the oversubscription criteria.
