School admission arrangements

Sunderland Local Authority is required to consult annually upon the admission arrangements of schools within its area.

The consultation for 2015-2016 is now complete. However, since the consultation took place, two schools have increased their published admission number (PAN) for September 2015 and are required to publish a variance to their policy:

  • Grindon Hall Christian School - PAN was 40; now 44
  • St John's Bosco RC Primary - PAN was 26; now 30

The consultation process for 2016-2017 has started and will end on 27 February 2015.

Any comments must be submitted to school.admissions@sunderland.gov.uk by no later than 27 February 2015.

The arrangements and policies can be accessed via the 'Related links' below.
