Children may start school in the Reception class in the September following their FOURTH birthday.
Applications for Reception class places at St Teresa’s Catholic Primary School must be made on a common application form to the Local Authority (LA) in which the child lives.
The common application form must be returned to the relevant LA and NOT to the school. All parents are given the opportunity to rank up to three schools as their preferred school for their child.
Applications made during the school year for children already of school age (called in-year applications) must be made directly to the school. An in-year application form can be obtained from the school office and should be completed and returned to school. The Governors Admissions Committee will consider all applications and give the reason for any refusal in writing.
