The Local Authority is the admissions authority for community and voluntary-controlled schools and, as such, already administers the process for the allocation of school places for these schools. These schools are already provided with this service.
Allocation of School Places
To support Aided Schools, Academies, Trust Schools, Foundation Schools and Free Schools, we are offering to administer the admission allocation process on the school’s behalf. This will include applying the school’s admission policy and determining which children should be offered places. This covers admission to reception and Year 7.
Administration of the Admissions Appeals Process
To support Aided Schools, Academies, Trust Schools, Foundation Schools and Free Schools, we are a service that can provide schools with a process that is fair and impartial. We will liaise with the Council’s Democratic Services Team and provide all documentation related to the appeal. This removes the administrative burden from the school and releases further capacity to be used elsewhere.
