Ashton Church of England Primary School lies within the South Northamptonshire and Daventry area of Northamptonshire and our admission criteria is ‘Community Primary Rural’.  We have a PAN (Published Admission Number) of 8 pupils.  Should more than this apply, the oversubscription criteria will apply as below:

Places will be allocated to pupils who have an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan that names the school as appropriate provision.

When there are more applications for places than there are places available, priority will be given in the following order:

  1. Children in public care or previously in public care but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence or special guardianship order.
  2. Pupils who live in the linked area (in our case this is the village of Ashton).
  3. Pupils with an older brother or sister continuing at the school at the time of admission of the younger child.
  4. Other pupils.


If the admission number is exceeded within any criterion, priority will be given to those who live closest to the school.

Please note, however, that due to the make up of our classes and school, the PAN may sometimes be exceeded.
