Allocations by school for September 2024 admissions

You can check last year's allocation details to see:

  • each school's published admissions number (PAN) (schools can choose to take more children than the PAN as long as they do not have infant classes of more than 30)
  • the number of children each school took - if a school took fewer children than its published admissions number (PAN), then it will have offered a place to every child who applied.
  • the lowest criteria from each school's admissions policy used in allocating places - if, for example, the lowest criteria was 3, then all children who met criteria numbers 1 and 2, got a place; some or all who met criteria number 3 got a place, but no child who only met any criteria lower than 3 got a place (note last year's policy may have different criteria to this year's)
  • the furthest distance away any child lived who got a place (as measured in a straight line (in miles) between school and home using the National Land and Property Gazetteer) - the school may have turned down children who lived further away or they may not have had any applications from children who lived further away
