information and documents about our school admissions.

We warmly welcome applications to our school from all members of our community. The Admissions Policy has been formally adopted by the governing body who is the Admissions Authority and is responsible for determining the school’s admissions policy.

The governing body has set its published admission number (PAN) at 90 pupils to be admitted to [the
reception year] in the school year which begins in September 2023.

Bishop Wilkinson Catholic Education Trust is the admissions authority and is responsible for determining the admission policy. The local authority coordinates the admissions process on behalf of the Trust.

Policies and documents in relation to admissions can all be found on our policies page linked below.

How and when to apply

To apply for a place at this school in the normal admission round (not in-year applications), a Common Application Form (CAF) must be completed. This is available from the local authority in which the child lives.

The parent will be advised of the outcome of the application on 1st March or the next working day, by the local authority. If the application is unsuccessful (unless the child gained a place at a school the parent ranked higher) the parent will be informed of the decision, related to the oversubscription criteria listed above, and has the right of appeal to an independent appeal panel.

In-year applications

An application can be made for a place for a child at any time outside the admission round and the
child will be admitted where there are available places. Applications should be made to the school
by contacting the executive headteacher at St Joseph’s RC Middle School. Parents will be advised of the outcome of their application in writing. Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out above, will be applied. If there are no places available, a request can be made that the child is added to the waiting list (see above). The parent has the right of appeal to an independent appeal panel if refused a place.
