In Year Admissions
Parents are welcome to contact the school to enquire about places, but will need to apply through West Northamptonshire Council. If a place is available and offered, both parent and child will be invited to visit the school, to be introduced to the class teacher, and to give us an opportunity to share information about the school, and to gather information about the learner. A starting date will be agreed and the necessary admissions' paperwork will be completed.
We will also make contact with the previous school to gain up-to-date educational information to help us provide for the child’s individual needs.
The class teacher will ensure that a buddy or buddies are allocated to the child on their first day so that they feel welcomed, get to know our routines and expectations and begin to make friendship groups.
Places will be allocated to pupils who have an Education Health Care Plan that names the school as appropriate provision. When there are more applications than there are places available, the Trust will prioritise applications according to the order of the Admissions Criteria as below:
Looked after and all previously looked after children, who became subject to an adoption, child arrangement order or special guardianship order. This includes children who appear to the admission authority to have been in state care outside of England prior to adoption.
Children who live in the linked area (Boughton) and have an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child
Children of staff, where that member of staff has been employed at the school for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made, and/or the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage in the area.
Children who live in the linked area (Boughton)
Children who live outside the linked area and have an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child
If the admission number is exceeded within any of these criteria, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school.
The distance used in a “tiebreaker” for any oversubscribed criterion will be a straight-line distance from the address point of the child’s home to the address point of the school. Distances will be determined by the Local Authority measured on a straight-line basis using a geographical information system.
Published Admission Number:
This number is 28 children per year group. The school will not admit beyond this number.
This is defined as Boughton village.
