All Saints CEVA Primary School

Admission criteria

You must complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) if you would like your child to be considered under any of the Faith criteria. The SIF is available from the school and must be returned to the school by 15 January.

The governors will admit all children with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) 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:

  1. Looked after children and previously looked after children
  2. Children who have a sibling attending the school at the time of admission of the child (see sibling definition below)
  3. Children of worshipping members (see definition below) 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 Britain and Ireland; 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;
  4. Children of a member of staff (see definition below)
  5. 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* (see definition for residence and parish boundaries below)
  6. Children of worshipping members of any church that is a member of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland; 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
  7. Children of parent(s) or 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 Close, Jackson Close and Rowley Way, all of which come within the Parish of Boughton.

Tie breaker

Where the admission number is exceeded in any one criterion, applications will be prioritised on the distance from the child’s home to the address point of the school (priority being given to the children who live closer to the school.
This will be determined by the Local Authority using a Geographical Information System.

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 or partnership.
  • Adopted children

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

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 or 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 any other times) that is more than ‘occasional’ and has been sustained for more than a short, very recent period of time.

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.

Parish boundaries

To view parish boundaries see the A Church Near You website. You can put in your postcode, select where you live and the name of your parish will be shown.

Residency definition

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 or legal guardians may be asked to produce evidence of residency/home address at any time during the admissions process.
