Our Admissions policies: 

The Admissions policies for pupils' admissions during the academic years 2022-23 and 2023-24 can be found below. They include a timetable for appeals.

Please note that we have agreed to increase the PAN (Published Admission Number) from 45 to 60, with effect from September 2023, due to the expected demand for school places increasing in the area. 

The following amendments were made in August 2021 to the determined policy for 2022-23 to comply with the revised School Admissions Code 2021: priority for children adopted from state care outside England was added to oversubscription criterion 1; wording added to reflect that decisions on in-year admissions must be sent to a parent within 15 school days; provision added for Hard to Place children; advice added regarding applications for overseas children.
