Proposed change – addition of Priority for Children Previously in Care Outside England
Some time ago, the then School Standards Minister wrote to all Admission Authorities stating the government’s intention to amend the Code to include children who were previously looked after outside England equal priority with children who are looked after or were previously looked after in England (who are currently required to be given highest priority). The Minister asked Admission Authorities to consider giving second priority to children previously looked after outside England (following consultation) in the interim period.
As a result of this, it is proposed to give second priority to children who were previously looked after outside England in the admission arrangements for the September 2021 intake.
