Welcome to St Peter's for those looking to apply for a place in September 2021.
Due to the current restrictions we are unable to invite prospective families into school at present. We will continue to review the situation. In the meantime we will be posting a virtual tour of the school shortly. St Peter's is a Catholic Primary School and we have a Reception intake of 30 children.
If you would like to know more about our school as a potential parent/child please contact our school office on 01253 734658.
ROUTINE ADMISSIONS (Place for Reception 2021)
As a Catholic Primary School we ask parents to complete the school's supplementary form (a) which should be completed and returned to the school office alongside your child's Baptism cerificate (if Baptised.) This information is used to enable Governors to place applications according to the admission criteria.
NON-ROUTINE ADMISSIONS (Place for current school age children)
If you would like your child to attend St Peter's and they are currently of school age then you need to contact the school office (01253 734658 email using the contact us section of the website) to establish whether a place is available within your child's year group. In line with guidance upon capacity the Governor's of the school have set class sizes to 30 pupils. Parents can appeal for a place if this number has already been met. The appeals process is organised by Lancashire Authority and the Appeal is heard by an impartial panel. If you wish to visit the school before or during the Appeals process this can be accomodated. Parent's wishing to Appeal for a place should complete the Appeal's Form on which they should outline the reasons for wanting a non-routine place for their child at St Peter's. This form should be signed and returned to school either by post or email. Please find at the bottom of this page the Appeal's form and Guidance document. The process usually takes approximately 4 weeks.
