How to apply for a school place at St Barnabas Church of England School

The Academy Governance Committee (AGC) have delegated responsibility for admissions in our school and are therefore responsible for all admissions. All places are allocated in accordance with our Admissions Policy which you will find above.

Admission to reception

Children are able to start at St Barnabas in the September following their 4th birthday. Applications for reception can be made in the autumn term. The deadline is 15th January.

Applications must be made through the local authority where you live. For more information and to apply online please click here.

If you wish to apply on faith grounds, please complete our Supplementary Information Form (SIF) which is available below in addition to the local authority application form and return to the school by 15th January.

Admission to any year group during the school year (known as in-year applications)

If you are interested in joining our school and would like to arrange a visit please contact the school office.

We are part of the North Northamptonshire Council in year scheme, which means applications must be made via the local authority rather than directly to the school. You can do this online here: Move school during the school year (in-year) - Schools and education (northamptonshire.gov.uk) 

For schools with faith criterion – If you wish to apply on faith grounds, please complete our Supplementary Information Form (SIF) which is available below in addition to the local authority application form and return to the school.

How to appeal for a place at St Barnabas Church of England School

 

If you have applied and been refused a place at our school (in any year group), you are entitled to appeal against that decision. Appeals for PDET academies are administered by The Diocese of Peterborough Education team. For more information on the process please see https://www.peterborough-diocese.org.uk/church-schools/admission-and-appeals/  If you wish to appeal please contact education@peterborough-diocese.org.uk and ask for an appeals pack.

The pack includes some explanatory notes about the process of Admission Appeals and a Notice of Appeal form that, should you decide to proceed with an appeal, will need to be completed and returned by email if possible, but if not, to the Diocesan Office instead.
