Admissions Arrangements

The DEMAT Admission Policy sets out the admission arrangements for DEMAT schools. Schools will comply with all relevant provisions of the Department for Education’s School Admissions Code of Practice 2014 (“the Admissions Code”), the School Admission Appeals Code of Practice 2012 (“the Appeals Code”) and the law on admissions. The school will, through DEMAT, consult as may be required and/or necessary. Reference in the Codes to admission authorities shall be deemed to be references to the DEMAT Board, the powers and functions of which may be delegated to the head teacher supported by the Local Governing Body (LGB) of the school. All schools in The DEMAT will participate in coordinated admission arrangements by the Local Authority (LA) in their relevant geographical location and in respect of other arrangements specified in the admissions code. Notwithstanding these arrangements the Secretary of State may direct the DEMAT school to admit named pupils to a school on application from the LA, before doing so the secretary of state will consult the DEMAT.
