All applicants to our school will be considered according to our Admissions Policy.
How to apply for a school place at Weldon CE Primary School
The Academy Governance Committee (AGC) have delegated responsibility for admissions in our school and are therefore responsible for all admissions. All places are allocated in accordance with our Admissions Policy which you will find below.
Admission to Reception Class
Children are able to start at Weldon CE Primary School in the September following their 4th birthday. Applications for Reception Class can be made in the Autumn Term. The deadline is 15th January.
Applications must be made through the local authority where you live.
Admission to any year group during the school year (known as in-year applications)
If you are interested in joining our school and would like to arrange a visit please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01536 265288.
We are part of the North Northamptonshire Council in year scheme, which means applications must be made via the local authority rather than directly to the school. You can do this online here:
How to appeal for a place at our school
If you have applied and been refused a place at our school (in any year group), you are entitled to appeal against that decision.
Appeals for PDET academies are administered by The Diocese of Peterborough Education team. For more information on the process please see: www.peterborough-diocese.org.uk/church-schools/admission-and-appeals/
If you wish to appeal please contact the Appeals Administrator by emailing email@example.com and asking for an appeals pack.
The pack includes some explanatory notes about the process of Admission Appeals and a Notice of Appeal form that, should you decide to proceed with an appeal, will need to be completed and returned by email if possible, but if not, to the Diocesan Office instead.
