School Admission: Children in need review
Radical change ‘needed on school admissions’
The DfE confirmed that this review only relates to children in need.
DfE: Help, protection, education: concluding the Children in Need review – June 2019
“We will act on our commitment to take forward changes to the School Admissions Code and improve the clarity, timeliness and transparency of the in-year admissions process to ensure all vulnerable children can access a school place as quickly as possible. We will also strengthen and improve the Fair Access Protocols, and ensure these can be used to admit children who currently need a social worker and specifically children in refuges”
