The management of school admissions and appeals can result in significant challenges for school leaders given the complexity of the legal requirements on schools, particularly where schools act as their own admissions authorities.

The NASUWT is able to provide advice and support to school leaders facing issues with their employers around admissions arrangements.

School leaders in England should email the Member Support Advice Team.

Members in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales should contact their relevant National Centre.

The NASUWT also undertakes extensive policy work on admissions and campaigns for fair, equitable and transparent arrangements applied consistently across the country.
