The governors of Weston Favell CE Primary School are the Admissions Authority for our school, the policy is reviewed annually and ensures that we not only suppport Christian families, but families in our local community too.

Reception applications are made on the NCC website by parents and our admission panel are repsonsible for applying our admission criteria to the applications. The places are offered by the Local Authority. If you are a family who attends church please ensure you collect a form from school which you complete, informing us of the church you attend. We then contact your worship leader or rector to verify your application.

In-year applications, must also be made through the NCC website and places are allocated according to our school admission policy if vacancies exist in the required year.

Appeals can be made if your request for a place is declined, please contact Peterborough Diocese on for the relevant paperwork.
