Proposed Admission Arrangements for September 2022/2023

Closed 15 Jan 2021

Opened 30 Nov 2020


Birmingham City Council facilitates the consultation process on behalf of own admission authority schools in Birmingham who have instructed the Council to carry out the consultation on their proposed admissions arrangements for the 2022/2023 academic year.

Why we are consulting

When admission authorities propose changes to their current admission arrangements, they must consult on those changes for a minimum of six weeks. This consultation period allows parents, other schools, religious authorities and the local community to raise any concerns about their proposed admission arrangements.

Admission authorities must consult with:

• parents of children between the ages of two and eighteen;
• other persons in the relevant area who in the opinion of the admission authority have an interest in the proposed admissions;
• all other admission authorities within the relevant area (except that primary schools need not consult secondary schools);
• whichever of the governing body and the local authority who are not the admission authority;
• any adjoining neighbouring local authorities where the admission authority is the local authority; and
• in the case of schools designated with a religious character, the body or person representing the religion or religious denomination.

What happens next

Any objections or comments will be forwarded to the relevant admissions authority once the consultation period has elapsed, for their consideration and response (if applicable).
