Consultation on School Admission Arrangements 2021- 2022
We undertook a consultation on issues relating to school admissions, in order for the existing arrangements to be reviewed and updated.
Anyone with an interest in education, such as parents, community groups or schools were invited to comment on the proposals.
The arrangements upon which consultation took place was as follows:

- Consulting with schools on the Relevant Area for admission policy

The consultation was live online for 43 days from Monday 14 October 2019 at 00:01 until Monday 25 November 2019 at 23:59.
Please also note that Redbridge schools that are responsible for their own admissions may also be consulting on admissions for their own schools if they propose any changes to their arrangements or have not consulted in the last 7 years. This includes all voluntary aided faith schools, foundation schools and academies, including free schools. Schools can only change their arrangements if they consult, so without consultation they must remain unchanged.
