How to apply for a school place at Spratton CE Primary
All places are allocated in accordance with our Admissions Policy which you will find below.
Admission to Reception
Children are able to start at Spratton CE Primary in the September following their 4th birthday. Applications for reception can be made in the autumn term. The deadline is 15th January 2023.
Applications must be made through the local authority where you live.
We give parents and carers the opportunity to visit our school before applying and provide three open events during the Autumn Term. There is also a welcome film and information on our website.
If you wish to apply on faith grounds, please complete our Supplementary Information Form (SIF) which is available below in addition to the local authority application form and return to the school by 15th January 2023.
Admission to any year group during the school year (known as in-year applications)
If you are interested in joining our school and would like to arrange a visit please contact the School Office.
We are part of the West Northamptonshire Council in-year scheme, which means applications must be made via the local authority rather than directly to the school. You can do this online here: Move school during the school year (in-year) - Schools and education (northamptonshire.gov.uk)
If you wish to apply on faith grounds, please complete our Supplementary Information Form (SIF) which is available below in addition to the local authority application form and return to the school.
How to appeal for a place at our school
If you have applied and been refused a place at our school (in any year group), you are entitled to appeal against that decision.
Appeals for PDET academies are administered by The Diocese of Peterborough Education team. For more information on the process please see:
If you wish to appeal, please contact the Appeals Administrator by emailing
and ask for an appeals pack.
The pack includes some explanatory notes about the process of Admission Appeals and a Notice of Appeal form that, should you decide to proceed with an appeal, will need to be completed and returned by email, if possible, but if not, to the Diocesan Office instead.
Following the National Offer Day on 17 April 2023, the deadline for lodging an on-time appeal is 22 May 2023 (5pm).
The Appeal Clerk will send notification of the Hearing (Date and Time) to the Appellants, week commencing 12 June 2023 and proposed appeal hearing dates are week commencing 10 July 2023.
Spring/Summer 2023 appeals will take place either on Zoom or in-person at the diocesan offices in Northampton and Peterborough.
Decision letters will be sent within 5 working days of the appeal hearing, subject to any unforeseen circumstances.
