Schools also have to consult on theirs admission arrangements at least once every seven years, even if there have been no changes during that period.

The consultation is now open and will run to 21 December, 2018. Admission authorities of schools must determine (i.e. formally agree) and publish their admission arrangements for 2020 by 28 February, 2019.
