Schools in Northamptonshire
Please see the document below - Applying for a primary school place and also the Admission policies below.
Reception intake - primary and infant schools
In Northamptonshire, all children are offered a full year in reception.
Primary schools run from reception to year 6 and take new children into reception. Infant schools run from reception to year 2 and take new children in to reception.
If your child turns 4 between 1 September 2020 and 31 August 2021, you should apply for their reception place by 15 January 2021. After this date you will need to make a late application.
If you have applied and been refused a place at our academy (in any year group), you are entitled to appeal again that decision.
Appeals for PDET academies are administered by The Diocese of Peterborough Education team. For more information on the process please see: https://www.peterborough-diocese.org.uk/parents/appeals
If you wish to appeal please contact Appeals Administrator and ask for an appeals pack. Contact Alex Benoy at firstname.lastname@example.org
The pack includes some explanatory notes about the process of Admission Appeal and a Notice of Appeal form that, should you decide to proceed with an appeal, will need to be completed and returned by email if possible, but if not to the Diocesan Office instead.
Following the National Offer Day on 16th April 2021, the deadline for lodging an on-time appeal is 9:00am on 21st May 2021.
Proposed appeal hearing dates are during the weeks commencing 21st June and 28th June 2021.
Decision letters will be sent within five working days of the appeal hearing, subject to any unforeseen circumstances.
