How to apply for a school place at Greens Norton CE Primary School
The Academy Governance Committee (AGC) have delegated responsibility for admissions in our school and are therefore responsible for all admissions. All places are allocated in accordance with our Admissions Policy which you will find here.
Consultation on Admission Arrangements for September 2025 - August 2026
All admission authorities are required consult on their admission arrangements at least once every 7 years, even if there have been no changes during that period. We are currently consulting on our admission arrangements which apply to the academic year September 2025 – August 2026 but are not proposing any changes.
The consultation period runs from 13th November to 31st December 2023. Should you wish to make any comments about the proposed arrangements you can do so by email to Headteacher c/o firstname.lastname@example.org or by post: Greens Norton CE Primary School, Calvert Road, Greens Norton, NN12 8DD
You can find a full copy of our proposed admission arrangements here.

How to appeal for a place at Greens Norton CE Primary 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: www.peterborough-diocese.org.uk/church-schools/admission-and-appeals/
If you wish to appeal please contact the Appeals Administrator by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
