Fair Access Protocol

The Fair Access Protocol sits outside the arrangements for the coordination of school places and is triggered when a pupil hasn’t secured a school place under the in-year admissions procedures.

All admission authorities must take part in the Fair Access Protocol to make sure that unplaced children are offered a school place quickly.

There’s no duty for local authorities or admission authorities to meet parents’ preferences for schools when offering places under the Protocol.
