Admissions

The Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi Academy Trust is the admission authority for all the schools within the Trust and is responsible for determining the admissions policy.  On behalf of the Trust, the admissions are co ordinated by the relevant Local Authority.  All decisions relating to admission applications will be taken by the school’s Local Governing Body.  

 

If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.

OVER SUBSCRIPTION CRITERIA

The Over-Subscription Criteria including the order in which they are applied can be found within the Admissions Policies above.

SCHOOL ADMISSIONS CODE

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 spaces available.  An application should be made to Nottinghamshire Local Authority, see link below, by completing the LA Common Application Form and following the instructions on the LA website.  If applying for a place on faith grounds you will also need to complete a Supplementary Form, see link above, and return to the school office.

 

Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria as set out in the admission arrangements for the current school year will be applied.  Parents are advised to read the admissions arrangements carefully before making their application.  If there are no places available, the child will be added to the waiting list.  Please see the admissions arrangements for more details.

 

You will be advised of the outcome of your application in writing as soon as possible.  Applicants must be informed of the outcome of their application within 15 school days of receipt, but the aim is to notify applicants of the outcome of their application within 10 school days of receipt.

 

You have the right to appeal if your application is unsuccessful.

 

If you have any questions in relation to in-year applications please contact the school office on 01636 689177

 

You may also wish to discuss in-year applications with the local authority, see link below.

WAITING LIST INFORMATION

 

Parents whose children have not been offered a place at a school in the normal admissions round will be added to the school’s Waiting List unless they have been offered a place at a higher preference school. The Waiting List will normally remain open until the end of the academic year.  

 

Waiting Lists are maintained in the same order as the oversubscription criteria and not in the order in which applications are received or added to the Waiting List. This means that your child’s position on the Waiting List may change during the year.

 

Any late applications will be added to the Waiting List in accordance with the oversubscription criteria.

 

Inclusion on a school’s Waiting List does not mean that a place will eventually become available.

 

Parents must make a further application for a school place in respect of a later academic year and if a place is not available the child’s name can be added to the Waiting List for that academic year.
