The school has strong links with the local parish church, St.Wilfrid’s. As a Voluntary Aided school, the school’s Governing Body is the Admissions Authority and is responsible for admissions. We are an inclusive school that welcomes all children and all applications will be treated fairly and objectively according to our admissions criteria.
The school can accommodate up to 84 children within the regulatory conditions set by North Yorkshire Education Authority. Normally Governors will not admit more than 12 children of Reception age.
Children who have a statement of special educational need, which names Burnsall VA Primary School, will be admitted. This is a statutory entitlement under section 324 of the Education Act 1996 and is not part of the oversubscription criteria.
Where there are more applications than places available, the Governors will offer places according to the following oversubscription criteria in order of priority.
