About

This demo was put together for the Leeds City Council Schools Admissions Innovation Lab held on 29th June 2015. It’s a fleshed-out version of the app presented (with these slides) on that day.

It is based solely on 2015 admissions data. The application portion is only for primary schools, as secondary school applications were identified as much less problematic on the day.

Usage notes

The traffic light system

In the tables, you’ll see Availability for schools that took in fewer children than their available spaces in 2015. You’ll see Oversubscribed whenever any child was refused a place. And you’ll see Not all nearest allocated when not all children for whom the school was their nearest were given a place.
