Determined admissions arrangements

Schools have admission criteria to decide which children are allocated a place. For further information regarding primary, secondary and in year admissions view the admissions arrangements page.

Fair access protocol

We have a Fair Access Protocol to make sure that unplaced children, especially more vulnerable pupils, are offered a place at a suitable school as quickly as possible.

Address of convenience assessment protocol

We have a procedure which tells you how we investigate potential addresses of convenience for school admissions.

Statement of Special Educational Needs

Where a school’s admission arrangements refer to a pupil with a Statement of Special Educational Needs, this will also include pupils who have an Education, Health and Care Plan.

Copies of these arrangements are available from us or directly from schools.
