In 2020-21, Barton Park Primary School had an admission number of 30 in total across Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. This was made up of 15 reception age children in one class, and a second class with a mix of Year 1 and Year 2 children. Where fewer applicants for each year group are received, the school will offer places to children in the alternative year group.
Barton Park Primary School is expected to grow to a 1.5 form entry school. This means we can take 45 children into each reception class, each year. From KS1 onwards, this means our school will teach some children in mixed year classes.
For a place in our Reception Class 2021, families need to apply to the local authority for a school place, so that their children can start school in September, after their 4th birthday. The deadline for applications has now passed but late applications can be made up to 4 May 2021.
