St. Boniface R.C. Primary School

Together we learn, grow and play with Jesus by our side

Admissions Policy

 

Parents/Carers need to apply for a place in our school via the Local Authority.  The admissions criteria is used by the governors to make offers of places.  The maximum number of pupils admitted to any year group is 30.  Most children transfer to All Hallows RC High School at the age of 11.

 

The Governors of the school have a responsibility to maintain the Roman Catholic character and ethos of the school and have agreed this with the LA.

 

Admission to the Nursery class does not automatically guarantee or influence admission to the Reception class.

1. Baptised Roman Catholic children who are in public care.

2. Baptised Roman Catholic children who will have a brother or sister attending the school at the time of admission and resident in the parish of St Boniface.

3. Baptised Roman Catholic children resident in the parish of St Boniface.
