If you wish to apply for a place for a child to start in Reception in September 2017, you must apply through Lincolnshire County Council between 14 November 2016, and 15 January 2017 (12 noon).
You can find out about the application process on their website:
Parents are welcome to arrange a visit to the school - please call us on 01476 566121
if you would like to make an appointment.
Our Planned Admission Number (PAN) is 34 children.
Applications for Midyear entry must also be made through Lincolnshire County Council.
Where we are unable to offer a place, you can contact us if you would like to request that your child is placed on our Reserve List. This is kept until the end of each school year (31 August each year). You can contact the school again if you wish to remain on the list for a further year.
Please read the Admission Policy before applying, and provide any additional information or supporting documentation, where appropriate. Please contact the appropriate place of worship for details of their verification process, if appropriate.
Starting School at Barrowby
Lincolnshire County Council requires that we admit pupils into school in the year in which they are five. We have a policy of admitting all four year old children in September at the beginning of the academic year. This, therefore, includes all children where the fifth birthday falls between 1 September and 31 August of that academic year.
It is our policy to provide the best opportunities for our new children to settle happily into our school environment. Once Reception places have been offered by the Local Authority, children who will be starting with us in September are offered two preliminary visits during the Summer term prior to admission. During one of these visits, parents are invited to a meeting where they are introduced to the life of the school.
We aim to ensure that every child has the best opportunity to adjust to life at school in a happy and secure atmosphere.
Registration of Pupils (Regulation Amendment Act 1988)
The above named regulation requires schools to keep a register of all living parents of its pupils. The school therefore needs to know the name and address of all parents, whether or not resident with the child. Where natural parents do not share the same address, please notify the school.
Pupils transfer to secondary schools after the completion of Year 6. It is our aim to ensure as smooth a transition as possible. We welcome secondary liaison teachers into school to talk to prospective pupils. Open evenings and transition days are arranged at all secondary schools in order to assist parents with their options. The Local Authority manages the allocation of Secondary places, and provides information to parents regarding the application process. In Year 6 pupils have the opportunity to enter the 11+ examination for a Grammar School place. The choice to do so remains with parents. The selection procedure consists of two tests held at the local Grammar Schools. Parents of Year 6 pupils will be informed of the exact procedure at the time.
