Pupil Admissions is a statutory service that supports and advises parents/carers and schools on admission and appeal related processes. We form part of the wider learning service with SENDACT, Education Safeguarding, School Governance and Virtual School. Our main role is to allocate school places but we also support other processes such as school admission appeals, Fair Access, requests for children to be taught outside of their chronological age group, pupil occasional holidays, term dates and consultations on admission arrangements.
Community and voluntary controlled schools do not need to buy back any service from Pupil Admissions. We are your admission authority and carry out all admission and appeal related processes on your school's behalf.
