Co-ordinated school admission arrangements

The School Admissions Code requires all local authorities to have co-ordinated admission arrangements for admission into Reception and Year 7.

This means that parents receive a single offer of a school place for their child on the same day.  The result is a more objective, clear and fair admissions process.

Liverpool Local Authority have agreed with Liverpool schools, the Liverpool Schools' Admission Forum, Diocese, Archdiocese and neighbouring local authorities to use the following co-ordinated admission arrangements and equal preference scheme to allocate places in Liverpool primary and secondary schools.
