Admissions

Admission to Reception 2018

 

 

Registering An Interest

All parents who maybe interested in a place for their child at Leigh St. John's are encouraged to contact the school office on

01942 672825 and register an interest, however, it is important to note that this does not guarantee a place.  This ensures we will contact you with our open day details as well as send you a school prospectus in the November before your child is due to start school.

 

 

The Application Process

The applications process is coordinated by Wigan Council's School Places Team. Applications for a Reception place must be made through the Local Authority.  Applications can be made online at www.wigan.gov.uk​ or by completing a Wigan Council primary school application form which can be completed online or in paper format.

 

It is essential that parents applying for a place at Leigh St John's under criteria 3, 4, 5 or 6 also complete the SUPPLEMENTARY FORM in addition to the Wigan Council Application Form.   This helps us to determine under which criteria we must consider each applicant. We do kindly ask that this supplementary form is returned to us and NOT handed in at another school!

 

Admissions Criteria 2018-2019

Returning Application Forms

Applications can be handed in to any Wigan Primary school and receipts will be issued by the school. These should be kept safe until letters of allocation are sent out.  However, the SUPPLEMENTARY FORM needs to be returned to Leigh St John's. 

 

Parents and carers are advised to ensure that application forms and supplimentary forms are submitted by the specified deadline to avoid disappointment.  Any application received after the deadline will be dealt with as a late application after all other applicants have been considered.

 

If supplimentary forms are posted to the school, it is the responsibility of the applicant to check to ensure they have been received by our office team.

A Place is Offered!

When pupils are admitted to Leigh St. John's C.E. Primary School parents and carers will receive a 'Welcome Pack' which will contain an invitation to our 'Welcome Meeting' as well as other documents and information to be returned.  In the Summer Term prior to their child starting school, parents and carers will be invited to attend a series of fun taster sessions with their child.  Parents and carers will be notified in advance of the dates and times of these.  The taster sessions which are ​ known as BIG SCHOOL TIME are a fabulous opportunity for children to make new friends and to get to know their teachers, as well as have a jolly good time playing in their new classroom.  These visits are also a valuable opportunity for parents and carers to meet up and to establish new friendships.
