School Admissions Consultation 2019/20

Hertfordshire County Council is running a consultation on the proposed admissions arrangements for the school year 2019/20 and is seeking responses from parent/carers, schools and community groups.
The proposed changes are:
1. To amend the wording and definition of ‘Rule 5 – Nearest School’ to include all schools and academies (regardless of status) unless that school or academy prioritises applications and allocates places on the basis of faith.
2. To include reference to the Shared Anti-Fraud Service in the definitions section in cases of fraudulent address verification.
The consultation period runs until 5 January 2018.
