Please read the ‘myths buster’. Many parents believe that as they have put their name down at the school or there are siblings in the school that admission is automatic.
If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.
Admission of Summer Born Children for Reception Entry for Newnham St Peter’s Primary School
The Governing Board of Newnham St Peter’s Primary School acknowledges the updated advice from the Department of Education that parents/carers of "summer born" children (born between 1 April and 31 August) may request to start the Reception Class of a school a whole academic year later. The Governing Board will make a decision on behalf of Newnham St Peter’s Primary School. We follow the Local Authority process which states that parents can only apply for a Reception place at a school once and must apply for a place during the standard application process timeline for their chronological year group, stating their reasons for requesting deferred entry to the following year. The Governing Board will decide whether the deferred entry can be approved for the school.
