Consultation 2024-25


Consultation on admission arrangements 2024/2025

We will be consulting on our admission arrangements for 2024/2025 through Plymouth City Council. The consultation will be live between Monday 5 December 2022 and 15 January 2023. If you wish to find out about our policy or make any comment, please visit www.plymouth.gov.uk/admissionconsultation

Consultation 2023-24


All school admission authorities, including Plymouth City Council, are required to consult on their admission arrangements in accordance with provisions within the School Admissions Code where there is a change to the arrangements or at least once every seven years if there are no changes.  It is important to ensure that school admission arrangements meet the needs of all parents and children and consultation is an important part of the process in formulating and setting school admission arrangements. We have attached a poster should you wish to print and display this in any relevant area for other people to see.

We are consulting all stakeholders on the proposed admission arrangements for admission arrangements for 2023/2024. Amongst others, we will be consulting with:

  • all maintained schools in Plymouth;
  • pre-schools in Plymouth;
  • parents;
  • local community groups;
  • neighbouring local authorities;
  • schools in neighbouring areas;
  • Church of England (CE) and Roman Catholic (RC) Diocesan Directors of Education;
  • City Councillors and Members of Parliament;
  • trade unions;
  • relevant Trusts and Associations.

Further information and details of the proposed changes are available on the Plymouth City Council website at www.plymouth.gov.uk/admissionconsultation from Monday 6 December 2021.  As part of the consultation process we would like to canvass the views of as many groups of people as possible. 


The closing date for the consultation is Sunday 16 January 2022 and any comments should be submitted online using the online form available at www.plymouth.gov.uk/admissionconsultation.
