Published Admission Number for 2022 entry is 90 for Reception

Our school admissions policy is determined annually and complies with the School Admissions Code.  

We are part of Peterborough City Council's co-ordinated admissions processes.  To apply for a place in Reception, parents must apply online through the Peterborough City Council portal.

When the school is full in a year group, a continuing interest list is kept and a place will be allocated to the child at the top of the list, should a place become available.  The continuing interest list is ranked according to the over-subscription criteria detailed in our policy.   Admission appeals are co-ordinated by Peterborough City Council.

Dogsthorpe Infant School is fully signed up to the local Fair Access Protocols in Peterborough.

Our approach to requests for admission outside the normal age range or for deferred admission for reception children is explained in the full policy.

The child's current permanent address must be used when applying for a place.  The home address is that of the parent with whom the child normally lives from Monday to Friday.
