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