Tower Hamlets school admissions forum

What this forum does

The Tower Hamlets school admissions forum includes representatives of schools, parents, governors, Diocesan boards and the Council of Mosques. The forum monitors and reviews the effectiveness of admission arrangements and how those arrangements can be improved. It advises the council on how to deal with difficult admission arrangements and improve access to school places for all children. The forum deals with school admissions policy, but does not discuss individual admission cases.
