Admissions Information

St. Peter’s is a Voluntary Controlled Methodist School.  We follow the Local Authority’s admission criteria.  Applicants are ranked according to the following criteria:

1. Children in the care of the Local Authority and children previously in the care of the Local Authority
2. Current Family association (i.e. a sibling already in the school).
3. Health and special access reasons. Evidence must be provided that demonstrates that this is the only school that can accommodate the child’s and/or the parent’s needs.
4. Nearness of home.


When we receive a request for a child to be placed on our waiting list, their position on that list is decided by the above criteria, this is what is meant by the order of priority.

As new applications are received a child’s position on the waiting list may change.

Government legislation limits infant classes to 30 pupils.

Parents have the right to appeal against the refusal of a school place. Information about the appeals process is provided on the reverse of the application form and in the school’s refusal letter.

If your child is offered a place at St Peters Methodist Primary School, you must respond to the offer letter within 10 school days or the place may be withdrawn and offered to another child.
