The ‘standard number’ is the number of children the LA considers the school can accommodate. The standard number for our school is [360]. We keep this number under review, and the governors will apply to change the number if circumstances change.

6.  Monitoring and Review

This policy will be monitored by the governing body and reviewed every two years, or earlier in the light of any changed circumstances, either in our school or in the local area. The policy will always take due note of guidance provided by the local Admissions Forum.
