A NEW series of admission numbers for Kirklees schools was agreed by councillors.
The cabinet meeting yesterday approved admission numbers for all the schools in Kirklees and agreed some changes.
The numbers govern how many children can be admitted to each school in each new academic year.
The majority of the numbers remain unchanged but a few schools have seen their limits changed.
Councillors agreed to reduce the admission numbers for schools including Almondbury High School (206 to 180), Moor End Technology College (186 to 180) and Royds Hall High School (181 to 172).
When it comes to admitting children, every child who applies will get a place if there are fewer applicants than the planned number.
If there are more applicants, a series of priorities are drawn up by the authority to be considered in order.
These include living in the immediate area, having siblings at the school or living outside the school’s area.
