We are currently consulting on proposed changes to the school admission arrangements for secondary and community schools within the County of Monmouthshire.  We propose to implement the changes to existing arrangements in readiness for the 2020/21 academic year.

The consultation provides you with an opportunity to ask questions, make comments, and share your views on the proposals put forward. Your input into this consultation will be considered carefully when the Council considers whether the proposals should be taken forward to implementation.

The consultation document provides you with further information regarding the proposed changes.

Your views on the proposed changes to the school admission arrangements are important to us.  We really do want you to engage in this consultation and tell us know what you think of the proposals, particularly if they may affect you or your children.  This consultation will not make any assumptions, so whether you are for or against the proposed changes, please take this opportunity to have your say.

You can tell us what your think by:
