St Andrew's CEVA Primary School admissions information

​St Andrew's CEVA Primary School, Ecton Brook Road, Northampton, NN3 5EN

Oversubscription criteria

When there are more applications than there are places available, the governors will admit pupils according to the following criteria which are listed in order of priority.

The governors will give priority to children with a statement of special educational needs which names the school.

  1. The governors will admit 'looked after children' - that is, children in local authority care or previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence or special guardianship order.
  2. The governors will admit pupils on social and medical grounds, where professionals have clearly identified that the school will best meet the needs of the pupils. These applications should be accompanied by documentary evidence from appropriate professionals within the Health or Social Care services. This information will be considered by two officers within the school’s own admission team and will be treated confidentially. In each case there must be a clear connection between the child’s need and St Andrew’s CEVA Primary School, and an explanation of the difficulties that would be caused if the child were to attend another school.
  3. Children of parents/legal guardians worshipping at or resident* in the Ecclesiastical Parish of Billing who can demonstrate an allegiance through attendance, to a church affiliated to Churches Together in England, which includes the Church of England. Applications should be accompanied by a reference form SIF/1, available from the school. The completed SIF/1 will be sent to the minister with the form SIF/2 to verify church allegiance.
  4. Children of parents/legal guardians worshipping at or resident* in the Ecclesiastical Parish of Emmanuel who can demonstrate an allegiance through attendance, to a church affiliated to Churches Together in England, Which includes the Church of England. Applications should be accompanied by a reference form SIF/1, available from the school. The completed SIF/1 will be sent to the minister with the form SIF/2 to verify church allegiance.
  5. Children who have a sibling/s** who will be continuing to attend the school at the time of admission.
  6. Children of parents/legal guardians resident* in the Ecclesiastical Parishes of Billing and Emmanuel who express a preference for an education in a Church of England school.
  7. Children of parents/legal guardians resident* in the Borough of Northampton who can demonstrate allegiance through attendance to a church affiliated to Churches Together in England, which includes the Church of England. Applications should be accompanied by a reference form SIF/1, available from the school. The completed SIF/1 will be sent to the minister with the form SIF/2 to verify church allegiance.
  8. Children of parents/legal guardians of any faith or none, who wish their children to be educated in this church school and Christian environment.

Tiebreaker

Where there are more applications in any one category, applications will be prioritised on the distance from the address point of the child’s home to the address point of the school on a straight line basis. Distances will be determined by the Local Authority using NCC’s GIS.

Definition of residency*

The child’s place of residence is the address of the parent or legal guardian with whom the child spends the majority of the time during the school week (parents/legal guardians may be asked to produce evidence of residency/home address at any time during the admissions process).

Definition of siblings**

The definition of a brother or sister (sometimes referred to as a sibling):

  • a brother or sister sharing the same parents
  • a half brother or half sister where two children share one common parent
  • a step-brother or step-sister, where two children are related by a parent’s marriage/partnership
  • adopted children

A brother or sister must be living at the same address when the application is made.

Worshipping member

For your information, our guidance on the term "worshipping member" is as follows:

At least one of the parents or guardians of the child is regarded by the priest/minister/worship leader as part of the worshipping community at the church/worship centre. This would not necessarily mean that the parent is a "member" in a technical sense (e.g. through baptism, confirmation or electoral roll) but would imply a pattern of attendance at worship (on Sunday or at other times) that is on average once a month for a twelve month period.
