Post: Rushton Primary School, Station Road, Rushton, Kettering, Northamptonshire NN14 1RL.

Rushton Primary School is part of Pathfinder Schools, a growing family of primary and secondary schools in Northamptonshire. See more info here.

Opening Times

The School Office opens from 8am - 4pm.  School gates open for students from 8.45am for a 9am start, finishing at 3.15pm.

School Closures

The school does its upmost to stay open, but in an emergency the school occasionally has no choice but to close. When possible the school office will make parents aware of closures prior to the day. This will be done via the school text service, social media and the school website. 

Parking Facilities

There are no on-site parking facilities, but the school has access to the cricket ground car park and would highly recommend parking there.  When parking please be aware of any private land and consider access to peoples property.

Bikes & Scooters

Due to the school's location, we advise that children do not come to school on a bike or scooter.  In addition, there are not any facilities on-site to store them.

Disabled Access Facilities

The school is able to support disabled access, but please call ahead to discuss your specific needs before visiting the premises.

Admission Arrangements

Under the current Government legislation, parents have the right to apply for a place at any school regardless of their address.  If the number of applications for places at the school exceed the number of places available, the following criteria will apply:

  1. Children with a Special Educational Need (SEN)

  2. Children living in Rushton, Storefield, Glendon and Pipewell 

  3. Children with brothers or sisters already attending the school

  4. If any places remain, they will be offered to children living nearest to the school as the crow flies.

When the standard number has been reached, applications will usually be refused. Parents will be asked if they want their child's name to remain on a waiting list and will be informed of the appeals procedures.

All decisions regarding the admission of children to the school rests with the Local Authority. For additional information, please telephone the Admissions Department on 0300 126 1000
