make the Office of the Schools Adjudicator subject to the Freedom of Information Act

Comment 4th February 2016

Make the Office of the Schools Adjudicator subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Why does this matter?

The body exercises important public functions:

"Adjudicators main functions are:

  • to determine objections to  admission arrangements .
  • to resolve disputes where there is local disagreement on statutory proposals for school reorganisation or on the transfer and disposal of non playing field land and assets.
  • to decide on competitions for new schools where the local authority has entered the competition with its own proposals. 
  • to decide on requests to vary determined admission arrangements. 
  • to determine appeals from schools against a direction from the local authority to admit a particular pupil."
