Hampshire Admission Forum

Providing support to the local authority in assessing the effectiveness of local admission arrangements

Hampshire Admission Forum:

  • considers a wide range of admissions issues
  • reviews and advises on Hampshire County Council's admission arrangements
  • makes recommendations on the proposed admission arrangements to Hampshire's Executive Member for Children's Services

From February 2012, Local Authority Admission Forums ceased to be a statutory requirement. However, Hampshire's Executive Member for Children's Services remains committed to regard the Forum's recommendations.

Forum includes representatives from the County Council, headteachers, parent governors, Church of England and Roman Catholic diocese, the armed forces, ethnic minorities, special educational needs, early years, social care and councillors representing the local community.

The Forum meets three times a year, with meetings held in October, January, and late June to take in key decision dates in the Admissions calendar.
