Nottinghamshire County Council - Proud of our past, ambitious for our future

Objections to admission arrangements

Parent(s) of a child who is two years of age but who is not above compulsory school age can submit objections if they consider that the determined admission arrangements do not comply with the law or the mandatory requirements of the School Admissions Code. In relation to an objection to arrangements for admission for sixth form education, parent(s) of a child eligible to apply to the school now or in the future can submit an objection.

Parent(s) of a child who is two years of age and who is receiving primary education can refer an objection to an admission number that is lower than the indicated admission number to the Schools Adjudicator.

Objections to the Schools' Adjudicator on unlawful aspects of the arrangements can be submitted by individual parent(s), but the Adjudicator must receive objections from 10 or more parents before a decision can be made on objections to admission numbers.

Adjudicators work independently of the Department for Children, Schools and Families and from each other on objections to admission arrangements.

Objections must be submitted in writing by 30 June 2012 to:

The Secretary
Office of the Schools Adjudicator
Mowden Hall
Staindrop Road
