We are delighted to offer you the opportunity to come and visit our school and meet our highly experienced staff in one of our Parent Information Evenings:

         Monday 11th October. 6pm - 7.30pm or

         Monday 8th November. 6pm - 7.30pm

Click here to register your interest.

These meetings will give you all the information you need to help you make a decision about your child's new school. It will include a tour of the Early Years setting and a chance to ask questions of the Head Teacher and Early Years Practitioners. 

The meetings are for parents and carers only - no children please - and we invite you to wear protective face masks to minimise risk of Covid transmission.

PLEASE NOTE: Should Covid restrictions change, this meeting may have to be cancelled and an online alternative will be arranged.


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.
