To apply for a place for our Reception class for September please apply using Peterborough City Council admissions process, details of this can be found on the Peterborough City Council website.

If you would like to make an appointment to visit the school or need advice on admissions please contact Mrs Guest in the school office or email

Parents of children with special educational needs or disabilities may want to talk through their child's needs with a member of staff prior to applying for a place. The school SENCO (Mrs Karin Rudd) would be happy to have this discussion with parents, to help and advise in any way she can. Any additional resources or adaptions that may be needed for your child can also be discussed.

Welbourne Primary Academy uses Peterborough City Council to manage its appeals. The council will prepare guidance for parents about how the appeals process will work and a named contact who can answer any enquiries parents may have about the process. Appeal forms are available from the Peterborough City Council website - please click on the link

Home Address

The home address is the address of the parent with whom the child normally lives from Monday to Friday. When parents live separately, the application must be based on the address at which the child usually lives. When parents live separately, but the child lives with both parents at different addresses, the child’s home address will be taken to be the address where the child lives for most of the week. If the child spends an equal amount of time with each parent, the address will be taken to be that of the main parent / carer eligible to receive Child Benefit for the child.

As part of the admissions process a parent may be asked to provide proof of address. To ensure that offers of school places are made fairly, the Academy is committed to following strict address verification procedures. In cases of flats the priority is that of floor level i.e. ground, first, second etc., in that order. In cases of exactly the same measurement where no differentiation can be established, a lottery will be used to decide the allocation of a place.
