To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the case for requiring schools that are responsible for their own admissions policies to provide their local education authority with (1) data on the most recent admissions round, and (2) their current admissions policies.

Local authorities will hold data on the most recent admission round because they receive all applications in the normal admissions round and send out offers of places on the national offer days, which are 1 March for secondary schools and 16 April for primary schools.

All admission arrangements for state-funded schools are also published in the local authority composite admissions prospectus which can be found on each local authority’s website.

Admission authorities are required, by the School Admissions Code and the School Information (England) Regulations 2008, to send their admission arrangements to their local authorities for inclusion in the composite prospectus by 8 August each year.
