Admissions

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no open mornings and tours of the school this year. Instead, the school has produced a video and a number of Power Points with key information regarding the admissions process and how the EYFS is structured. 

 

For admissions to Our Lady's for September 2021, the official pupil admissions number is 30 pupils in-line with Department for Education legislation. Although we must give priority to Catholic children, we also welcome applications from parents of children of other faiths. All places are offered to children in accordance with the published admissions policy.

 

To make an application for a place at Our Lady’s you will need to complete TWO forms.

 

1. Reception Online Application Form (OLA)

A link to this form can be found below

 

2. Supplementary Information Form (SIF)

This form can be downloaded below. This form should be completed by the parents and the parish priest or minister and returned to the School Office.

 

3. Appeals

If your child is due to start primary school in September 2021 you can appeal between 19th April -17 May 2021 to guarantee that your appeal will be heard by 23 July 2021.   For applications made in the normal admission round, appeals must be heard within 40 school days of the deadline for lodging appeals.  For late applications, appeals should be heard within 40 schools days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 schools days of the appeals being lodged.
