Helping schools determine their admissions arrangements.

Admissions Header

All Voluntary Aided, Foundation and Trust schools are their own admissions authorities. They must set, consult on and determine admissions arrangements. We recommend that this is done annually.

All admissions arrangements are subject to the Department for Education’s School Admissions and School Admissions Appeals Codes, and all governors should be familiar with these documents.

In brief

All Church of England Voluntary Aided and Foundation Schools must submit their proposed admissions arrangements to the Diocese for review before they go out for consultation.

We can offer advice and guidance on admissions issues in partnership with Local Authority colleagues in School Admissions. Schools may need to check whether they have bought back local authority admission and appeals services.
