(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend the Education (Determination of Admission Arrangements) Regulations 1999 in relation to England, and come into force on 27th March 2007.
The Regulations insert a provision requiring a local education authority to publish, in a newspaper circulating in the authority's locality, information relating to the admission arrangements for maintained schools in their area. The prescribed information includes the fact that certain parents may object to the adjudicator on the ground that a school's admission arrangements do not comply with the School Admissions Code or Part 3 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 (school admissions). This is a new right of objection prescribed by The School Admissions (Alteration and Variation of, and Objections to, Arrangements) (England) Regulations 2007, which Regulations come into force on the same day as these Regulations.
