Comprehensive Service in all things Admissions
The School Place Planning and Admissions Team offers a comprehensive service for both normal year of entry and in-year school admissions. We work with schools to ensure the admissions code of practice, locally agreed policies and correct processes are followed. We help to ensure all families and schools are treated in a fair and consistent manner and that national and local timescales are met. This includes the provision of a Dorset-wide prospectus for parents, as well as the county wide co-ordination and final allocation of school places.
The Team also has responsibility for the Strategic Pupil Place Planning across the County and with this and the Admissions portfolio is best placed to advise schools on admissions numbers and policies in relation to the ever changing landscape of basic need and changing demographics.
