St Wilfrid's CE Primary School is a one and half form entry primary school for children aged 4-11. Every September we welcome 45 children into our reception class - although high priority is given to children with Church connections, other local children are welcome and attend the school and nursery in significant numbers.
As a Church Of England school with strong links to St Wilfrid's Church, we admit in the first instance children whose parents/carers have a proven commitment to that church - although priority is first given to children with a statement of special educational needs naming St Wilfrid's CE Primary School, looked after children, and siblings of children already attending the school.
There are further categories, including children of parents who worship elsewhere and of other faiths - please download the full admissions policy below. In all categories, priority will be given to children living nearest the school.
The “proven commitment” to church is established by a faith leader’s reference form, also downloadable below.
So in order to apply for a place at St Wilfrid's CE Primary you need to do two things.
- Apply directly to the school using the downloadable forms. Don’t forget to fill in the faith leader’s form if applying for a place based on faith.
- Remember also to apply through Manchester City Council’s coordinated admissions process. Please contact them directly if you have not received details of this process.
For Nursery admissions please fill in a school application form as your child's date of birth will make it clear that a Nursery place is required.
Although we are an academy school, we operate our admissions through Manchester City Council's coordinated admissions process. Should you wish to appeal because your child has not been offered a place in your preferred choice of school please follow the Manchester City Council appeals procedure which can be found at MCC Appeal Process.
