Between the Cracks

Exploring in-year admissions in schools in England

This is the first major report for several years to examine the issue of in-year admissions in schools in England.  It aims to throw light on this complex issue which affects a large number of children and young people disproportionately, many of whom are already at risk of low attainment, and are often vulnerable in other multiple, complex ways.  As part of the RSA's commitment to addressing educational disadvantage, we hope that this report can inform debates, policies and practices toward in-year admissions, and admissions overall.  The work has been supported and part-funded by the Local Government Association (LGA).
