¹ Under the School Admissions (Admission Arrangements and Co-ordination of Admission Arrangements ) (England)  Regulations  2012  an application is  made  in the  ‘normal  admissions  round’  if  it  is  not  a ‘late application’ or an ‘in-year application’:

² An application is a ‘late’ application if it is for the admission of a child to a relevant age group; it is submitted before the first day of the school term of the admission year; and a determination relating to the application is not made by an authority on or before the offer date. The ‘relevant age group’ is the age group at which pupils are or will normally be admitted to the school e.g. reception or year 7 (Section 142 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998).

³ An application is an ‘in-year’ application if it is for the admission of a child to a relevant age group and it is submitted on or after the first day of the first school term of the admission year, or it is for the admission of a child to an age group other than a relevant age group.
