All VA and Academy schools are responsible for drawing-up and agreeing their own admission arrangements annually, and for publicly consulting on their admission arrangements periodically. CE schools must also consult with the Diocese prior to any public consultation.
When constructing admission arrangements CE schools in the Diocese of Bristol must follow the School Admissions Code as well as Diocesan Guidance.
The Diocese is able to provide support and training for school admissions. Please contact Liz Townend, Liz.Townend@bristoldiocese.org, 0117 906 0100.
Diocesan Guidance on Admissions
Is your school or academy responsible for its own school admissions?
The Diocese has a responsibility to provide these schools with guidance on admissions law and the admissions process.
The Diocese seeks to support all Church schools to conduct their admissions processes correctly and within the law.
Training, suitbable for governors and/or school staff to attend can be arranged by contacting Liz Townend.
The course will aim to:
- clarify governors and school staff responsibilities within the admissions process;
- highlight some common mistakes that schools make;
- answer any questions that arise.
