This page contains information on Admission Policy and Procedure

Admission policies play a part in preserving the distinctive religious ethos in our Church of England schools and Academies.  This guidance is based on the Admission Code published December 2014 and is written to support governing bodies of Voluntary Aided schools and Academies in meeting their statutory obligations.  All schools to whom the Code applies must consult with the Diocesan Board of Education prior to the general consultation which takes place every year.

The Admission Code requires all admission authorities to whom the Code applies to ‘act in accordance with it’ it specifies the requirements which are mandatory and must be complied with and those where admission authorities are required to ‘have regard’ to the guidance.
