A brief guide to terms used in this booklet
Academies are publicly funded schools that provide free education to pupils of all
abilities. They are established by sponsors from business, faith or voluntary groups.
They receive funding directly from the Department for Education. Each academy has
its own admissions policy.
Community schools are run by the local council. It employs the school’s staff, and
runs the admission procedure. Their running costs are met from public funds which
come through the local council (mainly council tax and grants from central government).
They provide free education. Community schools in the same borough share an
admissions policy.
Department for Education (DfE) is responsible for education and children’s services.
Education, Learning and Skills a group of services in Lambeth Council that
brings together all services for education under one banner.
Foundation schools are funded through the local council. They make their own
arrangements for admissions and provide free education.
Free Schools are all-ability state-funded schools. They are non-selective and
free to attend, and not controlled by a local authority. Each free school has its own
admissions policy.
Local Authority (LA) The borough/ local council.
Ofsted The national Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted), is the government
department responsible for inspecting schools and reporting on standards of
achievement and the quality of education provided.
Parents/carers The term parents includes carers and legal guardians.
Special schools cater for children who have an Education Health Care Plan and
whose special needs are such that they cannot be met in a mainstream school.
All children attending a special school must have an Education Health Care Plan.
Voluntary-aided schools are set up by voluntary bodies, usually churches,
but have their running costs met from public funds which come through the local council.
They provide free education. The voluntary-aided schools in Lambeth have very close
links to their church, and are often referred to as church schools. Each voluntary-aided
school has its own admissions policy.
Voluntary-controlled schools are run by the local council. It employs the school’s
staff, and runs the admission procedure. The council is normally the admission authority.
In this case, the school’s governing body must, by law, implement the council’s
decisions on individual applications, and act in accordance with the admission
arrangements determined and published by the council. Voluntary-controlled schools
usually share the same admissions policy as community schools in the same borough.
