Unfortunately due to social distancing guidelines we cannot invite visitors into the school. We are preparing a video which will be accessed through this website and will be available soon. If you wish this to be emailed to you please contact the school office on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please see below for deadline dates for accepting or declining a place or lodging an appeal.
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:
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.
We understand that, due to COVID there have been times during this year where the Church was not open. Our admissions policy has been adapted accordingly and agreed by the EFSA so please read points 2 and 5 in our over subscription criteria.
