Pineham Barns Primary School Determined Criteria

Places will be allocated to pupils with a Statement of Special Educational Needs or EHC Plan 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:

Oversubscription Criteria:

  1. Children in public care or previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, or a child arrangements order or special guardianship order.
  2.  Children living with an older brother or sister** continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child
  3. Children of qualified teaching staff where the member of staff has been employed by the Academy Trust for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made.
  4. Children who live closest to the preferred school within the defined area
  5. Other children

*The defined area is from Junction 15A of the M1 to the A4500/A5076 roundabout in Upton. From the A4500/A5076 roundabout in Upton to Upton Valley Way North. Upton Valley Way North is used as a boundary to define the area until it merges with Nectar Way. Nectar Way is defined as the boundary until it merges with Cob Drive, which leads to Swan Valley Way. Swan Valley Way reconnects the defined area to Junction 15A of the M1 via the A43.

**Sibling

A Brother or sister (sibling) is defined in these arrangements as children who live as brother or sister in the same house, (within a family unit) including natural brothers or sisters, adopted siblings, stepbrothers or sisters and foster brothers and sisters. The sibling must be in the school at the time of application and continuing at the school at the proposed date of admission.

Tie-Break Criteria

If the admission number is exceeded within criterion (2-5) for Pineham Barns priority will be given to those who are closest to the school on a straight-line basis. A representative of the Academy Trust will undertake measurements on the school’s behalf for In-year applications.

Initial Year R applications are dealt with entirely by Northamptonshire County Council. Distances are measured from the address point of your home to the address point of the school on a straight-line basis, using a geographical information system. Each address has a unique address point established by the most valuable elements from the National Land and Property Gazeteer (NPLG), Ordnance Survey Master Map, Royal Mail Postal Address File and The Valuation Office Agency. The address point for a property does not change.

Where two or more children share a priority for a place in any criterion e.g. where two children live equidistant from the school, these places will be allocated using random allocation undertaken by an independent body. However, if children of multiple births are tied for the final place those siblings will be admitted over PAN as permitted by infant class size rules Late Applications.

Late Applications

All applications received by the school after the deadline will be considered to be late applications. Late applications will be considered after those received on time. If, following consideration of all applicants the school is oversubscribed, parents may request that their child is placed on the school’s waiting list.

If you have any queries relating to this, please email Mrs Caroline Stewart at principal@pineham.org thank you.
