Local Authority Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme

Oversubscription 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 oversubscription criteria in the admissions policy are used to decide who should be offered a place. 

The oversubscription criteria are agreed by the admission authority for the school and must be in line with the School Admissions Code.

Children with an Education, Health and Care Plan issued by a local authority naming a specific school will be offered a place at that school before all other applications are considered for admission in September.

Admission authorities must give Looked After Children and Previously Looked After Children priority before any other applicant in the oversubscription criteria.

For Community schools the admission authority is the local authority.

For Academies, Foundation and Voluntary Aided schools the school’s Governing Body or their Trustees are the admission authority.
