Every address in Stockport falls within the catchment area of only one primary school and one secondary school. If you wish to be considered for a place at your catchment school you must include it as one of your preferences.
Admissions to our school are governed by the local authority regulations. This may be affected by where your home is located and whether your child has siblings already at Ludworth Primary School. Each Stockport primary school has a defined ‘catchment area’, listed below. Admissions to our Reception class are administered by the local authority admissions section and the following criteria are applied:
A. Looked after children and previously looked after children
B. Children considered to have ‘highly exceptional medical/social reasons’
C. Children who live in the catchment area of the school and will have a sibling at the school at the time of admission
D. Children who live in the catchment area of the school**
E. Children who live outside the catchment area of the school and will have a sibling at the school at the time of admission
F. Any other applicants, in order of straight line distance measured between home and the school
G. Applications received after the closing date ordered by the criteria detailed at A-F above
