The Role and Composition of the Admissions Forum
The Education (Admission Forums) (Wales) Regulations 2003, require every local authority in Wales to establish an admission forum.
The Forum provides a formal channel of communication between Local Authority and its maintained schools, other admission authorities and other key interested parties. The Forum’s role is to discuss the effectiveness of local admission arrangements, consider how to deal with difficult admission issues and advise admission authorities on ways on which their arrangements can be improved.
Membership of the forum includes school members (head teachers and governors) and non-school members such as council officers, members of Diocesan authorities and representatives of the local community.
