Shropshire Council

Admission arrangements for Shropshire Council schools 2020/21

Please note: These arrangements do not apply to academies, free schools, aided or foundation schools because they are their own admissions authority school and they determine their own admission arrangements.

For 2020-21 the only change proposed to arrangements for Shropshire community and controlled schools is one recommended by the DfE to introduce a high priority in oversubscription criteria to children who have been adopted from state care outside of England. Consultation took place from Wednesday 12 December 2018 for a period exceeding 6 weeks until Friday 25 January 2019.  The admission arrangements were then determined by cabinet on 13 February 2019. 

Following determination of arrangements, any objections to the arrangements had to be made to the schools adjudicator by 15 May 2019.
