Reception places for September 2024

Welcome to St. John's CE Primary School.

On this page, you will find all the information you should need in order to apply for a Reception Place for your child in September 2024.


Choosing where to send your child as they start their educational journey, is one of the most important decisions you make in life. So it is important for you to visit schools, see at first hand what each school has to offer and to decide whether that school is the 'best fit' for your child.

Here at St. John's, we want you to come and see what we have to offer and to see our school as it works every day. So if you would like to come and have a look around, simply call 01270 762859 and book an appointment time suitable for you!

Your visit to our school will be:

  • Personal and just for you;
  • You will be shown around the school by the Headteacher or senior member of staff if he is unavailable;
  • You will see the school working as it normally works every day;

If the information that you require is not here or you can't find the answers, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
