School admissions 2011

Oversubscription criteria

Each school has a set number of places in each year group called the Planned Admission Number (PAN).

And every school has an admissions policy which includes oversubscription criteria that are used to identify which children to offer places to when a school receives more requests than there are places available.

(School places are not allocated on a first come, first served basis).

Over-subscription criteria at Community and Voluntary Controlled schools

In Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools the admission policy is determined by Oldham Council.

Over-subscription criteria at Voluntary Aided, Foundation, Trust and Academy schools

In Voluntary Aided, Foundation, Trust and Academy schools, the school’s governing body determines the admissions policy and oversubscription criteria.

The admissions policies (including over-subscription criteria) are available on the individual pages for each school on this website.
