Applying for a September 2021 Reception Class place at St. Peter’s Catholic Primary School
Detailed guidance on applying for school places is available from the Leicestershire County Council school admissions website http://www.leics.gov.uk/index/education/going_to_school/school_admissions_and_pupil_services.htm. Parents should familiarise themselves with this information. Parents wanting to apply for a place at a Catholic school should also ensure they are familiar with the admissions policy for their preferred school, which is available via the school website (see the admission policy tab below for our admission policies). However, the following information may also be helpful to consider:
Catholic Schools are established to serve their local Catholic parish communities but applications for places are also welcome from Catholics of other parishes and from all parents and carers, regardless of faith or background, who would like their children to be educated in a Christian environment.
St. Peter’s Catholic Primary School has a published admission number of 30.
It is not possible to guarantee a place at any school and so parents are encouraged to apply to more than one school. Most local authorities provide for parents to express preferences for at least 4 schools which parents should place in order of preference. Catholic families are not limited to applying solely to their Catholic parish school. Parents can apply to other local Catholic primary schools if they wish and the inclusion of other Catholic schools in your preferences increases the chances of being offered a place at a Catholic school.
To apply to our school, it is essential that you complete an online application form for Leicestershire County Council. The form can be accessed via the following link –
The school’s Supplementary Form should be returned to school along with a copy of your child’s baptism/christening certificate if applicable.
