Following the publication of the new School Admissions Code 2021 , The governing body of All Saints CE Federation are currently consulting on the school admissions policy for September 2023.

An independent panel will be constituted to hear Admissions Appeals. The Derby Diocesan Academy Trust will arrange appeal hearings for either school in All Saints' CE Federation. Parents should lodge their appeal within 20 days with DCC, who will pass it on to DDAT to arrange a hearing within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging an appeal (School Admission Appeals Code Section 2).
Parents whose children have not been offered their preferred school in the normal admissions round will be added to their preferred school’s waiting list. Waiting lists for admission will normally remain open until the end of the Autumn Term in the admission year but schools may maintain waiting lists after this date and for year groups other than the intake year. Please contact the school to request further details.
Waiting lists are ranked in the same order as the over subscription criteria listed below. Your child’s position on the waiting list may change. This means that a child’s waiting list position during the year could go up or down.
Any late applications will be added to the list in accordance with the over subscription criteria. Inclusion on a school’s waiting list does not mean that a place will eventually become available.
