APPLICATION PROCEDURE for 2018 – 2019 In order to make an application, you must complete an application form from your local authority either on line or on paper and return it to them. You should also complete the School’s Supplementary Information Form (SIF). The information on the SIF enables the Governing Body to assess your application fully against the School’s criteria in the event of oversubscription. Please return the SIF (in person or by post) to the school, together with all other relevant paperwork required for your application. If you do not complete both of the forms described above and return them by 15th January 2018, the Governing Body will be unable to consider your application against the oversubscription criteria and your child will be ranked under the lowest criterion. It is very unlikely that your child will be offered a place if a SIF is not supplied.

You can get this from the priest at the parish where you normally worship. Please ensure that you have completed your child’s details on the top of the form before asking your Parish Priest to sign and stamp it. The Parish Priest will return it to you to include with your application.
Applications for In-Year admissions are made directly to the school. If a place is available and there is no waiting list the child will be admitted. You must also complete an application form from your local authority either on line or on paper and return it to them
If there is a waiting list, then applications will be ranked by the Governing Body in accordance with the oversubscription criteria. If a place cannot be offered at this time then you may ask us for the reasons and you will be informed of your right of appeal. You will be offered the opportunity of being placed on a waiting list. This waiting list will be maintained by the Governing Body in the order of the oversubscription criteria and not in the order in which the applications are received. Names are removed from the list at the end of each academic year. When a place becomes available the Governing Body will re-rank the list and make an offer to the person at the top of the list. The local authority will be informed of the offer as soon as it has been accepted.
