Joining Our School

We hope that you feel St John’s Church of England Primary School would be the right choice for your family. We want to welcome you to St John’s and show you the school we have created and what we can offer your child or children.

If you’d like to find out what our current parents think about being part of the St John’s family, you can watch a short video here.

Starting School in September 2019.

The application to confirm your offer of a place at our school from the initial allocations has passed. We look forward to welcoming your children into our school family.

We held a Next Steps meeting for all those allocated a place.

Next Steps 2019 Place Allocated

If you have not been allocated a place at St John’s, we would advise you to accept the place offered so that you are guaranteed a school place. You will then be able to stay on the waiting list for the subsequent 2 rounds of continuing interest. Once the continuing interest process has completed, you would then be able to apply directly to us to join our waiting list.

We also held a Next Steps meeting for those who were not offered a place and are on our continued interest/waiting list.

Next Steps Presentation – Continued Interest

Should places be available after the initial round of allocations, these will be allocated through the County Council’s coordinated admissions system.

The results from the 1st round were announced in the week commencing 13th May.

The results of the second round of continuing interest will be know in the week commencing 17th June.

How to apply

We are part of the County Council’s Coordinated Admissions Process. All applications should be made online. The deadline of 15th January 2019 has now passed. Please contact the County Council with any enquiries on how to apply now.

In Year Admissions 18/19

Current vacancy status by Year Group – updated 21st May 2019.

Reception: NO

Year One: NO

Year Two: NO

We are currently full in all year groups but you can still make an in year application to join our waiting list.

St John’s operates its own waiting list, therefore you should apply direct to our school. Should a place become available, we will allocate it to the first child on our waiting list. Places are allocated according to our oversubscription criteria as contained in our Admissions Policy for 2018/19.

In Year Application forms are available from the school office, or you can download one from this page. They must be physically signed and returned to school with the relevant documents confirming the child’s home address. We will accept applications via email as long as they are a scanned copy of the signed original and the scanned documents are attached. There is no requirement to complete a SIF form for an In Year Application Form.

Starting School in September 2020.

We will be undertaking tours between October and December 2019. Bookings will initially open at the end of the summer term (July) 2019. More dates will be added as and when tours become fully booked. We encourage you to book a tour at the earliest opportunity. We look forward to welcoming you to our school.

The determined admission arrangements and the Supplementary Information Form (SIF) are available on this page.
