To apply for a place a Beanfield Primary School, please contact school admissions at Northamptonshire County Council. More details can be found on their website. Here you will find relevant forms and details of key dates to submit applications. The school is unable to access or process admission information on your behalf. As soon as the Admissions Team informs us that your child has a place with us, we will contact you and make the necessary arrangements to welcome your child into school. We will also liaise with your child’s previous school and any external agencies involved with your family before your child start with us.
To apply for a place in our Early Years reception class parents will need to go through the Northamptonshire County Council admissions process. Details of this can be found on the Northamptonshire County Council website http://www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/. We advise that parents visit the academy and let us know if they are applying for a reception place for their child. For a place in any other year group we recommend that parents contact the academy after the application is made so that we can liaise with the county council over the offer of any places.
Every year all schools are required to consult on any proposed changes to their over-subscription admissions criteria.
Our over subscription criteria is when 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 but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence or special guardianship order
- Pupils with an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child. (See Appendix 1 for definition of ‘sibling’)
- 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.
- Pupils who live within the area defined as Beanfield. This area encompasses all houses within the bordering area of A6003, A427, Jubilee Road and Gainsborough Road; including all roads leading from Tower Hill.
- Other pupils.
If the admission number is exceeded within any criteria, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school. For further information about admissions, please refer to the Brooke Weston Trust Admissions Policy
