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:

https://www3.northamptonshire.gov.uk/councilservices/children-families-education/schools-and-education/school-admissions/Pages/default.aspx

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

Oversubscription Criteria

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

1. 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);

 

2. Children who live in the linked area;

3. Children with a sibling (brother or sister) continuing at the school or the linked junior school (Long Buckby Junior School) at the time of admission;

4. Other children.

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.

 

Please see the following website for the schools oversubscription criteria as outlined above (for 2020 intake):
