The Portsmouth and Winchester Diocesan Academies Trust is the Admissions Authority for all of its academies. The Trust covers a large geographical area, which encompasses multiple Local Authorities.
Therefore the Trust Board annually produce and determine a 'base' Admissions Policy, which is subsequently adopted by each individual academy. The only variations to the base policy is to PAN (Pupil Admission Number), parish the academy serves and whether the LA that the academy resides within, operates catchment areas.
The Trust delegates some admissions tasks and associated authorities to individual academies. These include the requirement for individual academies to undertake their own consultation on the base policy and to run their own admissions processes, such as waiting lists. Academies are supported by the Chief Executive Officer as appropriate.
All the Local Authorities that we work with currently centrally co-ordinate the admissions processes for all of their schools, including academies.
