HOW TO APPLY FOR A PLACE AT BURNESTON
If your child is due to begin their school career in September (i.e. at the start of next academic year) and you would like to apply to Burneston, you need to do so via North Yorkshire County Council, who handle all school admissions. Their policies and procedures are outlined in detail on their website. Please follow this link for further details and to apply for a place.
North Yorkshire County Council Admissions Policy
As a 'Voluntary Aided' Church of England Primary School, we work in partnership with the Local Authority regarding our admissions arrangements. In practice, this means that our school and its Governing Body will only make decisions regarding admissions if we are oversubcribed. For a full breakdown of the admissions policy in use for our school, including the arrangements there are in place for selecting the pupils who apply, the oversubscription criteria and an explanation of the process parents need to follow if they want to apply for their child to attend our school please click on the following link.
Our Catchment Area
The catchment area for the school is outlined in our admissions policy and includes; the residential communities of Melmerby, Wath, Norton Conyers, East Tanfield, Middleton Quernhow, Sutton Howgrave, Kirklington, Carthorpe, Burneston, Theakston (including RAF housing at The Coppice), Exelby and certain parts of the old village of Gatenby. We do currently have a number of pupils who live outside the catchment area and welcome all enquiries.
