All Saints CEVA Primary School, Boughton Green Road, Northampton, NN2 7AJ
The governing body is the admission authority in this voluntary aided school and is therefore responsible for all admissions. The governors will admit all children with a statement of special educational needs which names the school.
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 admit a ‘looked after child’, or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence, or special guardianship order. A looked after child is a child who is (a) in the care of a local authority, or (b) being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions (see the definition in section 22(1) of the Children Act 1989)
Children who have a sibling attending the school at the time of admission of the child (see sibling definition below)
Children of worshipping members of any church which is located in the Northampton ecclesiastical parishes of Kingsthorpe St John the Baptist, St David with St Mark, Holy Trinity with St Paul, St Giles and All Saints and that part of the parish of Boughton to the south and east of Holly Lodge Drive **, and is a member of Churches Together in England; this includes the Church of England. These applications must be accompanied by form SIF/A available from the school. The completed SIF/A will then be sent to the minister with form SIF/B to verify church allegiance.
The child of a member of staff provided they have been employed by the school for a minimum of two years. (See staff definition below)
Children living with their parent(s)/legal guardian(s) in the Northampton ecclesiastical parishes of Kingsthorpe St John the Baptist, St David with St Mark, Holy Trinity with St Paul, St Giles and All Saints and that part of the parish of Boughton to the south and east of Holly Lodge Drive. ** (for residency definition and parish boundaries, see below)
Children of worshipping members of any church that is a member of Churches Together in England; this includes the Church of England. These applications must be accompanied by form SIF/A available from the school. The completed SIF/A will then be sent to the minister with form SIF/B to verify church allegiance.
Children of parent(s)/legal guardian(s) of other faiths, or none, who wish their child to be educated in a church school and Christian environment.
** encompassing the streets, Dixon Road, Briscoe Close, Jacorrin
Where there are more applications in any one category, applications will be prioritised on the distance from the child’s home to the address point of the school. (This will be determined by the Local Authority using their standard method as described in the published information to parents.)
The child’s place of residence is the address of the parent or legal guardian with whom the child spends the majority of 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 2 children share one common parents
a step-brother or step sister, where two children are related by a parent’s marriage/partnerships
A brother or sister must be living at the same address when the application is made
Definition of staff
The definition of staff will be any permanent member of the school staff, including support and administrative staff, who has been directly employed by the school for a minimum of two years.
Definition of worshipping member
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 more than 'occasional' and has been sustained for more than a short, very recent period of time.
