Reception Admissions

At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, we normally host two Open Days for Reception in the Autumn term for prospective parents and carers of children who wish to apply to our school.  On these Open Days, parents and carers are given a tour of our school by pupils to see classes in action and have an opportunity to speak to senior leadership staff and current parents. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, please feel free to telephone the School Office to arrange a Zoom meeting.

If you would like to apply for Reception year entry for your child (if born between 1st September 2016 – 31st August 2017) to attend St Joseph’s from September 2021, please read through our Admissions Policy 2021-22 below and note the criteria for ranking of applications in the event of oversubscription.

You will need to complete our Supplementary Information Form (SIF) 2021-22 below and return this to the school. Please include evidence of your child’s date of birth, and include any relevant documents e.g. baptismal certificate and certificate of Catholic practice.

Incomplete application forms without accompanying documentation (where applicable) will be ranked as Criteria 13 ‘All Other Applications’. Hence please ensure that all paperwork is in order prior to handing these in to the School Office. 

Note that you will additionally need to apply to your Local Authority, no later than 15th January 2021.
