Determined admissions arrangements

All schools must have admission arrangements that clearly set out how school applications are processed

Admission arrangements are set by admission authorities. The council is the admissions authority for all community schools in this borough.

Voluntary aided schools and academies set their own admissions arrangements and are known as own admission authority schools. Every admission authority must set (determine) their admission arrangements each year and publish them on their website by 1 May.

Select the tab ‘school consultation’ for schools that are changing their admission arrangements for the next academic year.

The latest determined admissions arrangements for all our schools are listed here. If you feel these arrangements do not comply with the school admissions code or laws relating to admissions, make your objection to the Office of the Schools Adjudicator.

The Office of the Schools Adjudicator

Mowden Hall, Staindrop Road, Darlington DL3 9BG

Any decision the adjudicator makes must be followed by the admission authority and their admission arrangements must change in line with the adjudicator’s request.

2022-23

We have made some changes to our text within the Determined Admission Arrangements for 2022-23. The Admission Arrangements themselves have not changed however we have rewritten the section called  Deferred Entry or Part Time Attendance. The reason we have done this is to make it clearer to families what they need to do if they want to defer starting school and the process in considering such applications.  We also wanted to make families aware that for pupils in Reception Year, that they can attend on a part time basis if this is preferred.
