All Local Authorities are required to operate a Fair Access Protocol (FAP) which ensures that school places are secured quickly for most vunerable children who are missing education and to ensure that all schools in an area admit their fair share of pupils
with significant challenging behaviour. The protocol has been developed in line with DfE requirements as set out in the 2009 School Admissions Code and following consultation with the Admissions Forum and headteachers.
