Product description

Within the Children's Plan the DCSF set out its determination that the UK becomes the best possible place in which for children to grow up. Choosing the right schools for their child is one of the most important things a parent can do. A diverse school system should mean that parents have access to the schools they want for their children, where their child can be happy, safe and reach their full potential. The vision of fair access to 21st century schools is for all schools to have fair and lawful admission arrangements and policies. It is DSCF's intention that the measures set out in this revised Code will ensure parents are listened to and that their views shape school policies. They will also enable schools to have a balanced and representative intake that reflects the local community and enables them to be a community resource, raising standards in all schools. All admission authorities must comply with the mandatory requirements of the Code and admission legislation. The Schools Admissions Code 2010 came into force on 10 February, and, unless otherwise stated, applies with immediate effect. The Code applies to all maintained schools.
