    Nottinghamshire County Council has done a U-turn on its controversial school admissions policy, which saw some siblings being split up and sent to different schools.


    The Schools Adjudicator said it was unfair to remove a rule which gave priority to children who lived outside the catchment area but had siblings already at the school.

    Now the council has said for 2018, it'll bring back that rule.

    But she heard repeated concerned comments from staff about safeguarding procedures at the school and how staff felt their concerns weren’t being passed on.

    The inquest into Shanay's death also heard that Dr Holliman felt this was so serious the conversations could no longer be kept confidential and the police should be told. 

    The inquest continues.
