Applying for a place in our Reception Class
Wigan Local Education Authority is responsible for admissions to Bryn St Peter's Church of England Primary School and places are offered in accordance with the admissions criteria should the school be over subscribed.
For more details, please click here.
A maximum of 30 children are admitted to each class.
Where the school is over subscribed, i.e. where there are more children who want places than places available, places will be allocated according to the following criteria:
1. Looked after children and previously looked after children. Previously looked after children are children who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a child arrangements order or special guardianship order). Applications for previously looked after children must be supported with appropriate evidence i.e. a copy of the adoption order, child arrangements order or special guardianship order.
2. Children who appear to the Local Authority to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care because they were adopted. A child is regarded as having been in state care in a place outside of England if they were accommodated by a public authority, a religious organisation or any other
provider of care whose sole purpose is to benefit society. Applications must be supported with appropriate evidence that the child has been adopted from state care.
3. Children whose older brothers or sisters attend the school and will still be there at the time of admission
4. Children who live closest to the school.
