Admissions to Community Primary Schools

Doncaster Council is responsible for the admission arrangements of all community primary schools.

This year we have seen the academisation of more community schools in Doncaster but in general they continue to follow the Local Authority community school admission arrangements.

Queries about the arrangements can be directed as follows:-

Community Schools, Co-ordination or Catchment Areas - Doncaster Council, Civic Office, Waterdale, Doncaster, DN1 3BU or by telephoning 01302 737202

Other Admission Authorities

Academies, Free Schools, and Voluntary Aided schools are their own admission authorities. This includes the majority of primary schools and all secondary schools.

These schools are responsible for their own admission arrangements and also have to consult on these arrangements at least once every 7 years or sooner if there are to be any changes.  Changes will be publicised on the schools own website and consultation will take place within the relevant area.

Queries about the arrangements can be directed as follows:-

i) Voluntary Aided primary schools - the Governing Body of the school

ii) Academies - the Governing Body/Trustee's of the Academy

Relevant Area For Consultation on Admission Arrangements

The Education (Relevant Areas for Consultation on Admission Arrangements) Regulations 1999 requires all local authorities to biannually review the relevant area which identifies all schools must be consulted on changes to admission arrangements. Doncaster Council has determined the Relevant Area for Admission to schools as the geographical area covered by Doncaster Borough Council.  This will be reviewed for admissions in September 2023.
