Annual report on admissions
Each year every local authority is legally required to send an annual report (by 30 June) to the Office of the Schools Adjudicator (OSA), with information about admissions from the last academic year.
The report must cover as a minimum:
- Information about how admission arrangements in the area of the local authority serve the interests of looked after children and previously looked after children, children with disabilities and children with special educational needs, including any details of where problems have arisen.
- An assessment of the effectiveness of Fair Access Protocols and co-ordination in their area, including how many children were admitted to each school under them.
- The number and percentage of lodged and upheld parental appeals.
- Any other issues the local authority may wish to include.
Copies of reports from 2009 to date can be found here.
