St John’s is a Catholic Primary School provided by the Diocese of Lancaster and is maintained by Lancashire Local Authority as a voluntary aided primary school. The school’s Governing Board is the admission authority and is responsible for taking decisions on applicants for admission. For the school year commencing 2021-22, the Governing Board’s planned admission number is 30.
Admission to the school will be made by the Governing Board. All references listed on the Local Authority Preference Form will be considered on an equal basis with the following set of admissions criteria forming a priority order where there are more applications for admissions than the school has places available.
Parents who wish their application to this Catholic school to be considered against the faith priority criteria should also complete the supplementary form available from and to be returned to the school office. If the school is oversubscribed failure to complete the supplementary form may result in your application for a place in this school being considered against lower priority criteria, as the governing body will have no information upon which to assess the application on the basis of the applicant’s baptism.
Each Catholic applicant will be required to produce a baptismal certificate.
