School priority admission areas
Dear Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council,
I'm writing to ask whether you could provide me with the priority admission area data for all state schools (of all phases) within your local authority, which may be being used by a school catchment/priority area checker on your website.
I note that other local authorities publish this data publicly, like Hampshire County Council, Leeds City Council and Nottingham City Council.
It would be great if you could provide this information in an electronic, reusable format such as GeoJSON, KML or SHP.
I am asking for this in order to supplement a website I have created to help parents find out more about schools near them. You can see it here:
Please do email me or call me on the number below if you wish to discuss this request, particularly if there are any complications that could lead to a refusal.
