Reading Borough Council are not opening consultation on our admissions policies for community schools for 2018 entry as there are no significant changes. 

Reading Borough council co-ordinates admission for entry to Primary, Junior and Secondary schools as required by the School Admissions Code. Reading Borough Council's co-ordinated scheme for Primary, Infant and Secondary schools for 2018 ensures each child receives one offer of a school place.
