  • Admissions: right to appeal Do parents have the right to appeal an admissions decision? We look at parents' right to appeal admission decisions, and the process for setting up an admission appeal. We also look at the membership of the appeals panel and the role of its clerk.
  • Changing the published admission number (PAN) Must we consult on raising our published admission number (PAN)? We look at whether schools must consult when increasing or reducing their PAN, and when any changes will take effect. We also look at whether the decision can be challenged, and relay advice on preparing for an increased PAN.
  • Consulting on admission arrangements Admission authorities must consult on changes to their admission arrangements. We look at what you would need to do to fulfil this requirement, including who to consult and how the consultation must be carried out. You can also find examples of consultations for your own reference.
