Walgrave Primary School

Admissions

Introduction

Walgrave Primary School is a Maintained Community Primary School fully funded by Northamptonshire County Council. 

The governors agree to accept the Admission Policy guidelines produced by Northamptonshire County Council.

Children are admitted to school at the beginning of the school year (September - August) in which they are 5. 

The Online Application Process opens on the 10th September and closes on the 15th January.  Parents are advised if they have been successful in securing a place on 16th April.  Applications received after 16th November (but before 1st May) will hear on 13th May.

PAN for Walgrave (Pupil Admission Number)

The PAN which has been determined for Walgrave is 24.  This is the number of pupils which can be accepted for each class unless Northamptonshire Admissions determine otherwise, usually following an appeal.

Catchment Area

Walgrave and the surrounding rural areas and the villages of Hannington, Holcot and Old.  In case of equal merit in each set of criteria (see below) priority will go to children living nearest the school as measured by a straight line.

Oversubscription Criteria

Where there are more applications for places than there are places available, priority will be given in the following order:

  • Children in public care or previously in public care who ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a child arrangements order or special guardianship order);
  • Children who live in the linked area(s) of the relevant schools;
  • Children with a sibling (brother or sister) continuing at the school at the time of admission;
  • Other children.

Tie-breaker

If the Published Admission Number (PAN) is exceeded within any criterion, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school.

Where two or more applications cannot otherwise be separated, random allocation will be used to decide which applicant should be allocated a place. This process will be independently verified.
