 Determined Admission Arrangements - September 2024

The law requires that all school must have admission arrangements that clearly set our how children will be admitted, including the criteria that will be applied if there are more applications than place as the school.  Admission arrangements are determined by admission authorities.

All admission authorities must determine (i.e. formally agree) admission arrangements annually, even if they have not changed from previous years and a consultation has not been required. Admission authorities must determine admission arrangements for entry in September 2024, by 28 February 2023.  London Borough of Newham is the admission authority for our school and we have formally agreed to adopt the LB Newham’s admission arrangements for September 2024.

The London Borough of Newham is the Admission Authority for this school who organise all admissions centrally. Application forms are available online or through contacting the council 020 8430 2000. 

 Fair Access

The law requires that each local authority must have a Fair Access Protocol (FAP), agreed with the majority of schools in its area to ensure that for In Year admissions unplaced children, especially the most vulnerable, are offered a place at a suitable school as quickly as possible. In agreeing a protocol, the local authority must ensure that no school - including those with available places - is asked to take a disproportionate number of children who have been excluded from other schools, or who have challenging behaviour.  Langdon Academy has signed up to the LB Newham’s Fair Access Protocol.

Admission for entry from September 2023 - In-year (Mid-phase) admission

If your family arrives in Newham during the school year 2023/2024 and your child needs a school place in the borough you must complete an online In Year admission application form, and you are usually given a place within 10 days. 

The place offered may not be at the school you prefer as that school may not have a suitable place available.
