Fair Access Protocol Report

Purpose of report:

This report has been commissioned by Barnsley Local Authority to test out the quality of its Fair Access Protocols and related policies and procedures.

‘The purpose of Fair Access Protocols is to ensure that – outside the normal admissions round – unplaced children, especially the most vulnerable, are found and offered a place quickly, so that the amount of time any child is out of school is kept to the minimum. This is why every local authority is required to have in place a Fair Access Protocol, developed in partnership with local schools.’ (DfE Nov 2012).
