If you're considering admission to St Joseph's, you might like to begin by reading our Headteacher's Letter to prospective parents:
When you're ready to apply for school admission, there are two simple stages to the process.
If you have any questions at all about admissions, please don't hesistate to email us - we're always very happy to help: firstname.lastname@example.org
If your child is not offered a place at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, you have the right to appeal against that decision to an Independent Appeal Panel (set up in accordance with sections 88 and 94 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998). Appeals must be made in writing and must set out the reasons on which the appeal is made. Appeals should be made to the Admissions Appeal Clerk at the school address. Appeals should be lodged no later than 20 school days after the National Offer Day for primary schools (16 April 2021). Completed paperwork must be received by the school no later than 17 May 2021, and will be heard within 40 school days. The appeals system is operated independently from the school. Parents/carers have the right to make oral representations to the Appeal Panel.
Late application appeals will be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.
In-year applications will be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged.
Sadly, due to restrictions around the COVID-19 pandemic, our school tours have been cancelled this year. However, you can still get a great feel for what our school looks and feels like by exploring the new parents materials on our Headteacher's Blog.
