Admissions to the Danesholme Infant Academy
The Danesholme Infant Academy provides education for children within the 4 -7 age range in the Danesholme area.
For Reception year, in the year preceding admission, parents should apply using the Northamptonshire Local Authority process. All applications for Reception year starting September 2020 needed to be completed and submitted to the Local Authority by 5.00pm on 15 January 2020. Any applications for Reception year made after this date are deemed as late and will go into the next run of allocations after 18 April 2020.
Parents will receive their offer of a school place on 16 April 2020.
For all other in-year admissions, parents must apply for a place through the Local Authority.
There will be a right of appeal to an Independent Appeals Panel for unsuccessful applicants relating to admissions at age 5 (statutory school age) or above. Appeals should be made within twenty (20) school days of the date of refusal.
Please be aware that the regulations under Section I of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 limit the size of an infant class (a class in which the majority of children will reach the age of 5, 6 or 7 during the school year) to 30 pupils per class teacher. Admissions over this limit are only permitted in very limited circumstances.
If refused admission, you should contact Northamptonshire County Council, in writing, to lodge an appeal.
