10. Fair Access Protocol

Every local authority is required to have a Fair Access Protocol, developed in partnership with local schools.

The purpose of the Fair Access Protocol is to ensure that, outside the normal admissions round, unplaced children, especially the most vulnerable, are found and offered a school place quickly.  This is to ensure that the amount of time any child is out of school is kept to the minimum.  Please see below for the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead's Fair Access Protocol Policy.  This applies to all of our schools, including Academies, and Voluntary Aided, and Free Schools.
