Over-subscription Criteria

Each admission authority adopts its own admissions policy for the academic year. When a school receives more applications than it has places available, the admission authorities apply what is known as their 'over-subscription' criteria to decide who should be offered a place.

Pupils with a Statement of Special Educational Needs or Education, Health and Care Plan issued by a local authority naming a specific school where a pupil should receive his or her education will be admitted to any publicly-funded school before preferences are considered for admission in September.

Admission authorities must also give Looked After Children and Previously Looked After Children priority before any other applicant in the over-subscription criteria, irrespective of whether or not they live within a school’s catchment area.

The over-subscription criteria are agreed by the admission authority for the school and are required to be in line with the School Admissions Code.

For Community and Voluntary Controlled schools the admission authority is the local authority.

For Academies, Foundation and Voluntary Aided schools it is the Governing Body of the school.
