Fair Access Protocol consultation

School Survey regarding revised Fair Access Protocol:

Every local authority is required to have a Fair Access Protocol enabling those children who would otherwise be out of school, to access a school quickly. It applies to in-year admissions only, not to the normal round of admissions and it aims to keep the amount of time any child is out of school to the minimum. (DfE Guidance, November 2012 – Fair Access Protocols: Principles and Process)

Consultation will be available from 21 November 2018 until 15 January 2019. 

Why we are consulting

The current Nottinghamshire Fair Access Protocol was agreed in 2014 and references legislation that is out of date. The way that local areas operate to ensure that vulnerable children are placed quickly has evolved and changed and the protocol needs updating to reflect this.

 You can give your views on the consultation between 21 November 2018 and 15 January 2019. The views of parents, schools and other stakeholders are important to Nottinghamshire County Council and all responses will be considered prior to a final updated Nottinghamshire Fair Access protocol being agreed.
