Details of our admission procedures -

  • Statutory school age is the term following the child's fifth birthday. County policy allows children to start in the September of the school year in which they are five. This gives all children three full years in Infant School.
  • In the event of the school being oversubscribed, places will be allocated in accordance with the following criteria in order of priority -
  1. Pupils with an Education and Health Care Plan and children in public care.
  2. Pupils who live in the linked area (Raunds and Hargrave).
  3. Pupils with an older brother or sister continuing at the school or the linked Junior School (St. Peter's) at the time of admission of the younger child.
  4. Other pupils.

If the admission number is exceeded within any of these groups priority will be given to those who live furthest from the nearest alternative school.

Our admission number is 56 per year.

Please note that attendance in Reception classes for the first four weeks is part time.

If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.
