Often, because our admission number is 40 children per year, we can accommodate all of the children who would like to come to Darton Primary School. Where the Admissions Authority receives more applications than there are places at a school, however, it has a criteria for prioritising the applications to determine which applicants will be eligible for a school place.  These are known as ‘over-subscription criteria’.

Please note, attending our Nursery does not automatically entitle you to a place at Darton Primary School. Places are awarded by the Primary School Admissions department of Barnsley Local Authority.

If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.
