Northamptonshire County Council is the admission authority for all Community and Voluntary Controlled schools in the county and must determine (formally agree) the admission arrangements for these schools. For entry in September 2019, this must be done by 28 February 2018. You can see the determined policies for these schools here.
All admission authorities must determine admission arrangements every year, even if they have not changed from previous years and a consultation has not been required. Northamptonshire County Council has now determined admissions policies for all its schools, and details of these can be found below.
For 2019 intakes, the county council consulted on a change to the admission arrangements of only one of its schools, Blakesley CE Primary School, where it was proposed to reduce the school's PAN from 17 to 15.
