Admission Arrangements

Cogenhoe Primary School is a Maintained Community Primary School fully funded by Northamptonshire County Council. The Governors agree to accept the Admission Policy guidelines produced by Northamptonshire County Council.

Children are admitted to school at the beginning of the school year (September – August ) in which they are 5.

The online application process opens in September and closes on the 15th January. Parents are advised if they have been successful in securing a place on the 16th April. Applications received after 16th November (but before 1st May) will hear on the 13th May.

The PAN (pupil admission number) which has been determined for our school is 30. This is the number of pupils which can be accepted for each class unless Northamptonshire Admissions determine otherwise, usually following an appeal.

Oversubscription Criteria
