Fair Access Protocol

All Local Authorities and Councils must operate a 'Fair Access Protocol' in their area to make sure children considered hard to place and/or vulnerable are secured a school place, and that no school is asked to admit a disproportionate number of children considered as hard to place.

The Royal Borough work in partnership with the borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and have in place Bi-borough Fair Access arrangements. Each borough retains their own borough Protocol, but have joint Terms of Reference and one Fair Access Panel that considers each case.
