NOTES

The school is committed to taking its fair share of vulnerable children who are hard to place, in accordance with locally agreed protocols. Accordingly, outside the normal round of admissions, the governing body are empowered to give consideration to a child where admission is requested under any local protocol which carries the agreement of both the governing body and the diocese for the current admission year. The governing body has this power even when admitting such a child would exceed the normal admission number.

In the case of criteria 2, 4 and 5, parish priests and ministers will be asked to complete a form to verify attendance in accordance with the admissions criteria.

In the event of over-subscription in any one of the above categories, priority in that category will be given to children who live nearest the school measured in a straight line from the address to the school gate.

 

Admission Arrangements

It is the responsibility of the parent to inform the school office if any details on the application form change.

Parents whose preference of school is not met have the right of appeal to an independent Appeals Committee. Further information about this committee and the way in which appeals may be made is available from the Headteacher.

 

Waiting List

A waiting list is kept for all year groups within the school. In the event of a place becoming available in any year group, it will be offered in accordance with the admissions policy and over-subscription criteria.

 

UNSUCCESSFUL APPLICATIONS

Appeals
