Pytchley Endowed Church of England Primary School: admissions information

​Pytchley Endowed Church of England Primary School, High Street, Pytchley, Kettering, NN14 1EN

When there are more applications than there are places available, the governors will admit pupils according to the following criteria which are listed in order of priority.

The governors will give priority to children with a statement of special educational needs which names the school.

Oversubscription criteria

 

  1. 'Looked after children' - that is, children in local authority care, or previously 'looked after' but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence or special guardianship order as a priority.
  2. The governors will admit children on social or medical grounds, where professionals have clearly identified that the school will best meet the needs of the child. These applications must be accompanied by documentary evidence from appropriate professionals within the Health or Social services.
  3. Children living with their parents/legal guardian(s) in the ecclesiastical parish of All Saints, Pytchley (see residence definition below).
  4. Children who have a sibling attending the school at the time of admission (see sibling definition below).
  5. Children of worshipping members of any church that is a member of Churches Together in England, this includes the Church of England. These applications must be accompanied by form SIF/A1 available from the school. The completed SIF/A will then be sent to the minister with form SIF/B to verify church allegiance.
  6. Children of parents/legal guardians of other faiths, or none, who wish their child to be educated in a church school and Christian environment.

Tiebreaker

Where there are more applications in any one category, applications will be prioritised on the distance from the address point of the child’s home to the address point of the school. This will be determined by the Local Authority using their standard method as described in the published information to parent(s)/legal guardian(s).

Residency definition
