Admission Arrangements

Admissions Process

Earls Barton Primary School is a Community School and therefore North Northamptonshire Council is the admission authority for the school. The Published Admission Number (PAN) for Reception is 75. Detailed information regarding admission arrangements to schools in the county and to the Appeals Procedure for parents to follow if their preferred school is oversubscribed are contained on the North Northamptonshire Council website here. 

The application portal for parents to start making their applications for September 2022 intake opened on 10th September 2021 Please use this link to access the portal.

We have invited prospective families to tours of the school in October and November, but if you missed them, please email the school office:  and we will do our best to invite you come and have a look around.

The deadline for a submitting an application is 15th January 2022.  Applicants will receive the offer of a school place on Offer Day which is 19th April 2022. 

Allocation to Early Years Foundation Stage Classes

When classes are organised prior to the children entering school in September staff take great time and care to ensure that the classes are well balanced.  The following areas are considered:

  • Gender
  • Dates of Birth
  • Information provided by pre-school settings

It is the school’s belief that young children thrive in new, exciting and challenging environments. The organisation of the Foundation Stage provides many opportunities to form new friendships and develop vital social skills.

In Year Admissions

When we are approached, either by North Northamptonshire Council admissions or directly by parents, we invite the family in to visit the school. A place will be allocated in the appropriate year group in a class where there is a space. Both parent and child will be introduced to the class teacher and a starting date will be agreed. The necessary admissions paperwork will be completed and information about the school organisation will be given to the parent.

We will make contact with the previous school to gain up to date educational information to help us provide for the child’s individual needs.

The class teacher will ensure that a buddy or buddies are allocated to the child on their first day so that they feel welcomed, get to know our routines and expectations and begin to make friendship groups.

Pupil Premium

Earls Barton Primary school has received an amount of money from the government for various targeted children in the school.

Earls Barton Primary school has received an amount of money from the government for various targeted children in the school. Please see the documents in the side bar for further information on how this funding has been used.


Sports Premium

The sports premium is a time limited funding given to schools by the Department for Education to improve the provision of sport and PE in primary schools in a sustainable way. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

At Earls Barton Primary School we have a shared vision that this money should be used to develop the physical literacy curriculum, staff CPD and opportunities for all our children in a sustainable manner, ensuring good value for money and continuity in the coming years.


Special Educational Needs

All North Northamptonshire Council (Local Authority, LA) maintained schools have a similar approach to meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and are supported by the LA to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school.

All schools are supported to be as inclusive as possible, with the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities being met in a mainstream setting wherever possible.

The four broad ‘areas of need’ are Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties, and Sensory and Physical Needs.

What is the Local Offer?

The LA Local Offer

The Children and Families Bill was enacted in 2014.  Local Authorities and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for the children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) aged 0-25. This is the ‘Local Offer’.

The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families. It will also be an important resource for parents in understanding the range of services and provision in the local area.

Further details can be found on the NCC website - see the link in the sidebar.  Additional resources available during the Coronavirus lockdown are also available in the PDF document in the side bar.

Due to the current situation we find ourselves in North Northamptonshire Council have produced an additional page for children with additional needs, however a lot of the information on there is equally relevant to all families. This information can be found here: Local Offer

Our Inclusion Policy, which incorporates our Special Educational Needs Information Report, and our Accessibility Plan can be found by using the link in our sidebar for all of our Statutory Policies.
