Shropshire Council is conducting a consultation exercise on school admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools in Shropshire for 2022/23.

The Council is simultaneously co-ordinating a consultation exercise for own admission authority schools in Shropshire whose governing bodies are responsible for setting their admission arrangements and who wish to make changes.  We wish to notify all parents/carers and interested parties that the consultation will begin on Friday 11 December 2020 for a period in excess of 6 weeks up until Monday 25 January 2021. The proposed admission arrangements are laid out in the attached documents.
