Starting Primary School 2022

Dear prospective parents and carers,

If your child was born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018, he/ she will be eligible to start primary school in September 2022.

Sadly, due to higher levels of Covid vigilance in Peterborough and Cambridgeshire, we cannot invite you into school. However, we are hosting an online meeting on Monday 15th November at 5pm for all prospective parents to see inside our school and meet the teachers. If you would like to take part, please email to be sent the meeting login details. 

We're so sorry that, once again, this cannot be offered in person.

General Information about Applying for a Primary School Place

The application process for starting primary school for the first time in September 2022 is now underway and parents/carers have until the national closing date of 15 January 2022 to submit an application for their child. Please note that it does not matter how soon you submit your application as long as you submit it by the closing date. All applications received by the closing date will be treated equally.  However, if you submit your application after the closing date it will be processed as a late application and this could result in your child not receiving an offer at your preferred school.

National Offer day is 19th April 2022.  Parents who applied online will be notified by Peterborough City Council by email of the outcome of their application. Letters will be posted to parents who did not apply online. No decisions will be issued by telephone. 

Detailed information on Parents Meetings and Come and Play Sessions will be sent out to parents once offers have been made from Peterborough City Council.
