Guide to Admissions
The entry of children into primary schools is controlled and administered by an 'Admissions Authority'. For Community and Voluntary controlled schools this is the Vale of Glamorgan Council. Voluntary Aided and Foundation Schools the Admission Authority is the Governing Body of the school.
Admissions to primary schools will normally be granted provided a schools admission number is not exceeded. Where the number of applications for admission to a school exceeds the number of places available, i.e. where an admission number has been reached, places will be allocated applying recognised admissions criteria.
