Admission Arrangements

All admissions are processed through the admissions department at Northampton County Council. If you would like to apply for a school place at Long Buckby Infant School you must follow the link below to begin the application process.

Please see the following website for the schools admission arrangements:

Places will be allocated to pupils who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP)that names the school as appropriate provision.

Oversubscription Criteria

Should we be oversubscribed in any year group we follow the oversubscriptions procedure for Rural Infant Schools.

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

  1. Children in public care (Looked After Children) or previously in public care. Previously looked after children are children who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a child arrangement order or special guardianship order).
  2. Pupils who live in the linked area - Long Buckby, Long Buckby Wharf or Watford.
  3. Pupils with an older brother or sister continuing at the school or the linked junior school at the time of admission of the younger child.
  4. Other pupils.

If the admission number is exceeded within criterion (2), priority will be given to those who live furthest from the nearest alternative school. If the admission number is exceeded within any other criterion priority will be given to those who live closest to the school.

Please see the following website for the schools oversubscription criteria as outlined above:
