Admission to the Nursery

At the beginning of February, parents of eligible children will receive an information leaflet from County. The County form must be completed and submitted online from 9th February 2016 until 18 March 2016.  The school’s Supplementary Information Form and the Certificate of Catholic Practice also needs to be completed and handed in to Sacred Heart School at this time.

Around Easter each year, all applications received for the school year starting in the following September will be considered by the Governors. Places in the Nursery class will be allocated in accordance with the criteria. If the class is oversubscribed a continuing interest list will be kept. Offers of places will be sent out early in the Spring term and parents must accept the place within 14 days. Our admissions’ process runs alongside the County process and offers for all primary schools are sent out at the same time. Places declined at this stage will be offered in the order determined by the admissions criteria. Parents have the right of appeal if their request for a place for their child is refused.  It is school policy to admit pupils in September of the school year in which their 4th birthday occurs.
