Admissions

1. Admissions processes at age 4+ and 11+ are handled by Northamptonshire County Council (0300 1261000 or via their website www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/admissions ).

Parents are also asked to register their details of pre-school children with the school as early as possible. The Headteacher is then able to write to those parents in the Autumn Term before a child is due to start school in the following September. Tours of the school are offered and details given about the formal application procedure. Registering with the school does not have any bearing on whether your child will gain a place at our school. Places are allocated by the Local Authority based upon the published criteria (see below). The deadline for this application is currently in the January before the child is due to start school.

 

2. Queries about admissions in all other year groups should be made to the school, and the application process is described in the document below “In Year School Admissions Request for Woodland View”.

Parents are asked to contact the school to arrange a visit and submit the admissions request form (below) as soon as possible.

Admission Criteria for 2017 onwards

Places will be allocated to pupils who have a statement of SEN that names the school as appropriate provision. 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 or previously in public care but immediately after being in public care became subject to an adoption, residence or special guardianship order.
  2. Pupils who live in the linked area* and who have an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission on the younger child.
  3. Other pupils who live in the linked area* of Grange Park as defined below.
  4. Other pupils who do not live in the linked area* and who have an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child.
  5. Other pupils.

If the admission number is exceeded within any of these criteria, priority will be given to those who live furthest from the nearest alternative school that feeds Caroline Chisholm Secondary School.

If a place becomes available after the start of the school year and the admission number is exceeded within criteria 1, 2 or 3, priority will be given to those who live furthest from the nearest alternative school with a place available.

If a place becomes available after the start of the school year and the admission number is exceeded within criteria 4 or 5, priority will be given to those who live nearest to the school.

* Linked area

The urban area within which criteria 2 and 3 operate is defined by Quinton Road to the east, Lark Lane/Little Field/Bridgemeadow Way to the north, Saxon Avenue to the west and the extent of the Grange Park development to the south and south east.
