‘Let your light shine.’ Matthew 5:16

Enabling children to flourish and succeed


We welcome applications for places here at Waltham-on-the-Wolds Church of England Primary School and visits from parents and pupils too.

Admissions Query or to Arrange a Visit

We are an academy within the RISE Multi-Academy Trust. Admissions are coordinated by the Local Authority (LA), but within RISE, Directors are the Admissions Authority. Responsibility for the operation of this policy is delegated to the Local Governing Body of the academy, who allocate places according to our Admissions policy. This means it is necessary to contact both the school and the LA to apply for a place. When Governors have considered your application and a decision has been made, the LA will write to you directly with the result.


First time admissions into school


  • Please see our Admissions Policy for your child's year of admission (below).
  • Please apply online at Leicestershire County Council's School Admissions or contact 0116 305 6684 if you need a paper form.
  • LA letters are sent out on 11th April informing of the outcome of your school place application.


Mid-Term Applications



Applications and visits are welcomed and can be organised at any time of the year. Please contact the school office by telephone or email.


It is a good idea to call us before making contact with the LA so that we can advise if there is any space in your child's year group. You can still apply but would be refused a place if there is not a space. You would then have to follow the appeals process (outlined in the Admissions Policy) should you be unsuccessful.
