Banding is an admission arrangement which uses pupil’s scores in tests to ensure they admit children with a range of prior attainment. Although primary schools are not prohibited, banding is currently only used for admission to secondary schools. A school’s admission authority will, on the basis of the applicant’s performance in a test, allocate the child to one of four or five ability bands.
