Halton Borough Council works closely with local schools to develop an understanding and support for the children of those in service.
In 2012 the new School Admissions Code and Infant Class Size Regulations came into force which offered additional support to Forces children. The admittance of a Forces child became one of the ‘excepted permissions’ of the code for all admission authorities. This allows authorities to admit a Forces child over the class size ruling, which states there must be one teacher for every 30 pupils, providing proof of a posting is received. HBC enforces this legislation.
