How to apply for a place at St John the Evangelist Catholic Primary School

Parents wishing to apply for a place at St John the Evangelist Catholic Primary School must complete a copy of our Supplementary Application Form (which can be downloaded below) and return to school along with a copy of the child’s birth certificate and baptism certificate.  When we receive these we will send confirmation of receipt and add your child to our waiting list.  Please note: This does not mean your child has been allocated a place at school.

 Applicants for future admissions will need to fill in a Common Preference form the year before your child is due to start school which will be given out through your child’s pre-school setting.

In year applicants will also need to fill in an In Year Transfer form. You will be contacted at the appropriate time if we have been able to allocate a place for your child.  Pupils wanting a place higher up in the school will only be accepted at the beginning of a new term and mid term transfers will only be considered in exceptional circumstances.

If you have any queries regarding admission to school please telephone the school office on 01274 679030.  Visits to the school are warmly welcomed by prior arrangement.
