Admissions Consultation for 2022-23 Entry

This year’s Admissions Consultation is being jointly held by all admissions authorities in the City of York between 12 October and 29 November 2020. The consultation includes the admissions policies and planned number of places available at each school in the year(s) of entry. 

The views of parent/carers, schools and other interested parties are being sought during this consultation.

To respond, parents/carers can write to us, email admissionsconsultation@york.gov.uk  or complete this short survey at https://www.york.gov.uk/AdmissionsConsultation

Following the consultation, each admission authority will formally set (‘determine’) their admission arrangements for admission in 2022-2023 by 28 February 2021. Determined policies will be on all admissions authorities own websites by 15 March 2021 after which objections can be raised.

All documents found below at this stage are in their draft (pre-determined) form.

The draft policy is available here: Pathfinder Draft Reception Admissions Policy 2022-23 
The planned number of places (PAN) for Reception in September 2022 is 45.

Admissions Information

If you are thinking of applying for a place at our school, we do not hold an Open Day, preferring to meet with parents (and their children, if they can come too) individually.  In this way, parents get to see the school under normal conditions, giving a much more accurate feel of what we have to offer.  Please  contact the school office to make an appointment for this.

Admissions Arrangements - Reception Class

Our maximum annual intake is 45 children.

Our Reception, or Foundation, Classes ensure that the specific needs of children who are 5 years, and under, are met, in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.  In particular, this allows children to develop at their own rate, through structured play and the gradual introduction of more traditional teaching methods.

Further Information

Any objections to our arrangements may be made by parents/others to the Schools Adjudicator by the 15 May 2020. All objections must be received by the adjudicator on or before 15 May 2020, at:

The Office of the Schools Adjudicator

Staindrop Road,
Darlington, DL3 9BG
