Admissions Policy for 2017-18

Our admissions policy has recently changed - please see the link below to view our admissions policy for the academic year 2017-18

UPDATE

Please see below for deadline dates for accepting or declining a place or lodging an appeal.

Primary allocation letters are being sent on Tuesday 18th April. Please see the document below with all information regarding appealing for places.

At St. Paulinus, children are admitted to the Reception Class in the September of the year in which they are five. All children are admitted to the school at the same time in September. There is not a second intake in January or April.


Only 30 places are available in the reception class and these are allocated using the school's criteria. Every year, we have many more people wanting places than we have to offer. Subsequently, we have to have a set of over-subscription criteria to fairly allocate the 30 places. A set of criteria can be obtained in the following ways:

By coming in and visiting the school office:

 


 

 

Come along to one of our Open Days:- Monday 7th November at 2pm or Wednesday 30th November 2016. No need to book, just come along to whichever day suits.  Application packs can be collected on either day.

Important Information regarding Admissions Criteria One, Two and Three:

 

In order to ensure that the process for admissions is fair and transparent for everybody, St Paulinus Church have introduced a card system for attendance.

 

The cards will be available to collect in the Church office.  Your card will need stamping each time you attend Church which needs completion after the service in the Church hall.

 

We urge you to collect a card because our admissions criteria 1-3 specifically state attendance for 1 whole year at St Paulinus Church and this will be an effective way of demonstrating that this has been the case for you.
