Reception Intake

St John’s Church of England Primary School is a Voluntary Aided primary school. The Governing Board is the admission authority for the school, and the school is required to act in accordance with the School Admissions Code. The admissions process is coordinated by Rochdale Council (the Local Authority) and the school liaises with the Local Authority and Manchester Diocesan Board of Education on admissions issues. The Admissions Policy is reviewed annually and, following consultation on any changes, is published on our website and is also available from the school office. All applicants for a place in Reception Class must complete the Common Application Form (CAF) available from the local authority. (Follow the link below) Applicants who wish their application to be considered under criteria 1, 2 or 4 or 7 should also complete the Supplementary Information Form (SIF) below.  This should be returned to the school and a copy attached to the CAF form too.


If you require paper versions of the policy and form please call into the school office where we will be happy to print these off for you.
