Academy Ethos Statement 
St Peter’s CofE Academy is an inclusive academy that serves the whole community of Stoke-on-Trent. The Academy has a distinctive character and ethos, which reflect the teachings of Jesus Christ and Christian values. We ask all parents applying for a place here for their children to respect this ethos and its importance to the academy community. We hope that all students who come to St Peter’s CofE Academy will be able to participate (as appropriate) in the religious life of the Academy (including collective worship and religious education). This does not affect the right of parents to withdraw their children from collective worship and religious education and for those who are not Christians to apply for a place. Indeed, through our commitment to inclusivity, we actively welcome families from other faiths and no faith. 

St Peter’s CofE Academy admits 210 students to Year 7.  Out of the 210 places, the Academy Council intends to allocate up to 120 ‘Foundation Places’ (for practicing Christians) and 90 ‘Open Places’.   

Fair Access Protocol 
We participate in Stoke on Trent Local Authority, Fair Access protocol this helps to ensure that all children including those that are unplaced and vulnerable, or having difficulty in securing a school place in-year get access to a school place as quickly as possible.

In Year Admissions 
We manage our own In year Admissions in conjunction with the Local Authority. Parents will be notified of the outcome of their application and details about their right to appeal.
