Holy Rosary Catholic Voluntary Academy

Loving Heart – Strong Mind

Admissions

We are a Catholic school who welcomes applications for all children.  If you are considering applying for a place at our school in the Reception class then you must complete the Common Application Form available online from Staffordshire County Council.  A link to their website which provides full details about how to apply and the deadline for applications is available here: 

 

The normal deadline date for you to return your Common Application Form to Staffordshire is November each year.

 

Our admission arrangements include faith based criteria and so you will also need to complete a Supplementary Information Form (see appropriate year below) which you must return to Holy Rosary Primary School.  For more information please email enquiries@hrb.srscmat.co.uk or visit https://www.srscmat.co.uk/admissions

 

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.  An application should be made to the school by completing the In-Year Application Form (below). If applying for a place on faith grounds you will also need to complete a Supplementary Information Form (below) and return this to enquiries@hrb.srscmat.co.uk

 

Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out in the admission arrangements for 2021/22, will be applied. Parents are advised to read the admission arrangements carefully before making their application. 

 

If there are no places available, the child will be added to the waiting list.  Please see the admission 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 to an independent appeal panel if your application is unsuccessful. 

 

If you have any questions in relation to in-year admissions please contact enquiries@hrb.srscmat.co.uk  

You may also wish to discuss in-year applications with the local authority by contacting admissions@staffordshire.gov.uk
