School admission policies and reports

Planned maintenance to the Planning Portal

Due to an upgrade to the Planning Portal between 9am and midday on Saturday 21 October, customers will be unable to view documents on the site during this time.

Admissions into any school are governed by its admission policy which is written, determined and administered by the school's admissions authority:

  • for Community and Voluntary Controlled schools, the admissions authority is the Local Authority
  • for Voluntary Aided and Academy schools, the admissions authority is the Governing Body or Academy Trust of the school

The guide for parents includes information on each school, including the admissions authority. For any enquiries about admission policies, please contact the admissions authority for the particular school.

For school contact details, see our schools directory.

Admission policies for applications for future school years have to be formally determined. Determination follows a period of consultation and happens many months before the start of the school year in which the policies apply.

Policies will be made available here when they have been determined.

We also publish an annual school admissions report each year to the Schools Adjudicator with information regarding school admissions in the York area.
