School admissions - access to Schools Access Module (SAM)


We deliver the system for parents applying for places for children to start at school.

The applications are for children beginning of Reception, Year 3 and Year 7. The SAM is the system schools can use to meet this statutory duty.

Schools log on to the SAM module to see their list of applicants. You can arrange them according to your over subscription criteria.
