Parents and carers of children have the chance to comment on changes to Suffolk’s school admission policy over the next six weeks.
The county council is proposing to make changes to its admissions policy for the 2019/2020 school year; ensuring places are offered to children in a fair way.
The consultation, which started on Monday, will run until November 13.
There are proposals to make some minor changes to the admission arrangements – but the changes will only affect council-run schools.
The governing bodies of voluntary aided, foundation, free schools and academies are responsible for admissions to their schools. If you want to view the arrangements for these schools you should contact the school directly.

Gordon Jones, Suffolk’s cabinet member for Education, said: “Whilst we are only proposing some minor changes to our policy, school admissions are a very sensitive subject.
