St Gregory's Catholic Primary School

'For every future, for every child'

Admissions

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

Every year schools and academies are required to review their admission arrangements. The aim is to ensure that the arrangements continue to be appropriate, and that they comply with all the relevant requirements, particularly the national code of guidance and the policy of the Archdiocese. The Kent Catholic Schools’ Partnership is consulting on proposed changes to the admissions policy for all schools within our Trust to take effect for school admissions for September 2022. That is the proposed changes will affect new applications for entry into any of our schools from 1 September 2022 onwards. In this case the consultation period will run from 27 November 2020 to 8 January 2021.

 

You can find further information about the proposed changes at the following link  https://www.kcsp.org.uk/admissions-consultation-for-202223/ or by asking for a copy of the information at the school office.

Variation to admissions arrangements for September 2021-2022 - Statement

Admissions Clarification (Covid-19)

 

St Gregory's Catholic Primary School Admission Arrangements 2021-2022

 

Parents and carers applying for places in Years R - 6 in the academic year 2021-2022 are asked to note the following statement in relation to the Mass Attendance oversubscription criterion set out in the school's admission arrangements:

  • On the advice of the Education Commission of the Archdiocese of Southwark, the Kent Catholic Schools' Partnership has agreed the following statement in order to clarify how its faith-based oversubscription criteria will be interpreted while churches are closed or attendance at church is not possible due to Covid-19.  This statement has been shared widely with parishes by the Education Commission in order to ensure that determinations made by parish priests concerning regular practice of the faith are being made on a consistent basis.
  • The suspension of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass was announced on 18th March 2020 by the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales.  If a parent or carer attended Mass at a particular parish (or parishes) prior to 18th March 2020 then they will be considered to have attended Mass in that parish (or parishes) regularly since that time.  This will remain the case until the Sunday obligation is reintroduced by the Bishops.

Admission to school

St. Gregory’s Catholic Primary School accepts new pupils from all religious denominations and cultures; you do not have to be Catholic to be a member of the St. Gregory’s community. However, the admissions criteria gives preference to baptised Catholics. 

 

 

Reception Class Admissions

We have some vacancies for YR. Please contact the school office for more information.

 

A Supplementary Information Form (Parts 1 & 2) will also need to be completed, it can be found at the end of the admissions policy document. This should be accompanied by any evidence of religious denomination and birth certificate. 

 

In Year Admissions

All applications for ‘In Year Admissions’ must be made directly to school. For ‘In Year Admissions’ please complete the In Year Casual Admissions Form (IYCAF) and a Supplementary Form found at the end of the Policy document. Once complete both forms should be submitted to the school office. We will process your application and write to you.

St. Gregory’s has a  maintained nursery on site for children aged from 3 years. Entry criteria to St. Gregory’s Primary School do not apply to the Nursery. Applications for a nursery place must be made at the school office, not to KCC. Please note that a place in the Nursery does NOT guarantee an automatic place into the Reception class for any child.
