School Admission Arrangements 2023- 2024

Closed 15 Nov 2021

Opened 4 Oct 2021


Redbridge is undertaking a consultation on their school admission arrangements, for the existing arrangements to be reviewed and updated for the 2023-2024 academic year.

Anyone with an interest in education, such as parents, community groups or schools may like to comment on the proposals.

The proposed changes which consultation is also taking place on are as follows:

  • Each local authority must have a Fair Access Protocol to ensure that unplaced and vulnerable children, as specified in School Admissions Code 2021, and those who are having difficulty in securing a school place in-year, are allocated a school place as quickly as possible. Appendix 2 – Protocol and Guide for Managed Moves (within the Redbridge Fair Access Protocol) has been updated to reflect the existing Redbridge document: "Protocol for Managed Moves".           


  • Reducing the Published Admission Number from 120 to 90 at William Torbitt Primary School.


  • Reducing the Published Admission Number from 120 to 90 at Woodlands Primary School.

Please note that Redbridge schools that are responsible for their own admissions may also be consulting on admissions for their own schools if they propose any changes to their arrangements or have not consulted in the last 7 years. This includes all voluntary aided faith schools, foundation schools and academies, including free schools. Schools can only change their arrangements if they consult, so without consultation they must remain unchanged.
