September 2018 Entry
Applications to Reception for September 2018 will open on 6th November 2017 and close on 15th January 2018. Offers of Reception places will be made by the Local Authority on 16th April 2018.
Our Lady Catholic Primary School's Admission Policy for 2018-2019 is currently under consultation. Please read this page and the documents published on it very carefully as it contains important information which you will need to know when applying to the school.
The admissions process and all its forms can appear very confusing and daunting. Please feel free to call the school office if it helps to talk about the process, and you are very welcome to arrange an appointment to guide you through the paperwork (in complete confidence).
Documents on this page
· The schools’ Admissions Policies 2018-19 (one for nursery, one for reception) and Admissions Policies 2017-18: these are in place to make sure you have all the information you need to apply and that the school’s Governing Body treats all applications completely correctly.
· The Supplementary Information Form (or ‘SIF’): this form captures information which is additional to that which you provide on the Hertfordshire Common Application Form (or ‘CAF’). It helps make sure that the school, as a Catholic school, prioritises all applications correctly. While not a requirement, the school’s Governing Body asks that you complete the SIF to ensure that your application is given the correct priority.
· In addition, the Policies refer to the Certificate of Catholic Practice. This is the only evidence used by the Governing Body to determine whether or not a family is practicing their faith. This document is available from your parish priest, where you normally worship.
Copies of all the documents and forms (with the exception of the Certificate of Catholic Practice) are available at the school.
