Primary school admissions

6th October 2019

If you have a child in in the Buzzy Bee or Butterfly classes,  you need to be thinking about where you would like your child to go to school next September. It seems early but you need to have made your decision and applied for a school place by January 15th 2020. 

For some of you this will be the first time that you will have had to go through the process and we would advise you to do your research. Go and look at the schools you are thinking of and talk to other parents. We are sent details of open days of schools near to us which is an opportunity to visit. Please check in reception or outside your childs classroom. You are the ones who know your children best and by going to look round potential schools and asking questions will help you to make the right decision for you and your child.

Once you have made your decision apply online at The website is already open and is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. It will close on 15th January. On this website there is a booklet entitled ‘Primary School Admission’ which gives the admission criteria of all the schools in Peterborough.

You will be asked to put down three schools in your order of choice.

You will be informed which school you have been allocated on Primary National Offer day which is 16th April 2020. 

If you would like any help with completing the online application please do not hesitate to ask at         reception.
