Admission Criteria

Northamptonshire County Council publishes admissions criteria for all community Primary schools, including King's Sutton Primary Academy, each year. To view this information and access their online application form please click here.


Starting School, Reception Intake

Children who are four before September 1st can start school in the Autumn term of that year. In the Summer term before they join us, children and their parents are invited to school on several occasions enabling children to meet their teacher and spend some time in the classrooms. Parents are also offered a home visit which enables our class teacher and teaching assistants to get to know you and your child in a more informal setting.  


The number we currently admit into our Reception class is 30. Any children living in King's Sutton are the first priority to be offered a place at our school. Places are then offered to brothers and sisters of children living outside this area who will be at the school at the time of admission of the younger child.


If there are more than 30 applications, places are offered to children from outside the area and with no brothers or sisters at the school, according to the distance of their home from the school measured by the most practical route. Parents are usually informed by early April whether there is a place for their child.



Those who are not successful in obtaining a place may appeal to the LEA (Northamptonshire) for a review of the decision. For further information on the appeals process; please click here. No child will be refused a place solely because he or she has special educational needs.


Starting school in 2021?

For children born between 01/09/2016 and 31/08/2017, applications open on Thursday 10th September 2020. The deadline for Primary Admissions is 5:00pm on 15th January 2021.

A four day transition period during Term 6 ensures our children are carefully prepared for the next step on their educational journey.
