Governing bodies are responsible for ensuring that admissions (and attendance) registers are maintained, but the register itself can be kept by appropriate school staff. A pupil is placed on the admission register on the first day he/she is expected to attend.
The governing body is free to delegate to a committee of the governing body, an individual governor or the head teacher or the proprietor must “cause to be kept” a register. The register itself can be kept by appropriate school staff.
