Some schools have raised queries about the impact of Nick Gibb’s letter in September last year on the admission of summer born children. Schools are therefore reminded that the School Admissions Code (SAC) does not apply to independent schools and they can determine their own admission arrangements. Independent schools are required to have an admissions policy in accordance with the ISSRs and might like to consider the SAC and DfE’s advice when drafting their policy, but do not have to.
