2023/2024 School Admissions Policy Consultation

Purpose of the consultation

The school admissions code states that 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.  

Local Authority Consultations

Coventry City Council is proposing to reduce the Published Admissions Number for community primary schools as listed in the table below starting in September 2023.

The consultation period will be from 30 November 2021 to 11 January 2022.
