Fair Access Protocol (FAP)

Each Local Authority must have a Fair Access Protocol, agreed with the majority of schools in its area to ensure that - outside the normal admissions round - unplaced children, especially the most vulnerable, are offered a place at a suitable school as quickly as possible (School Admission Code: February 2012).  Pupil and Family Practitioners from The Harbour School @ Milton support the pupils, families and schools who are involved in school transfers under the Fair Access Protocol to ensure that they have the highest chance of a successful reintegration, are out of school for the minimum period of time and achieve positive outcomes.
