St Dominic Savio Catholic Primary School ‘Serve the Lord with Joy’

Admissions

NEW RECEPTION INTAKE SEPTEMBER 2020

 

You will have received your 'offer' of a place at our school and will now need to formally accept. As schools are closed in the UK, transition and induction arrangements are unable to be finalised at the moment. This includes dates and times for the new children. We will write to you once schools have reopened and we are clearer on the government's strategy for the return to school.

If you have any admissions queries, you can telephone us on 0118 969 3893 or e-mail us at: admissions@st-dominicsavio.wokingham.sch.uk

THE ADMISSIONS PROCESS

 

Deciding on the right school for your child is the most important decision for a parent and we hope that you find the information you require on this website.

 

If your child was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016, you will need to apply for a Primary Reception place, commencing in September 2020. We admit up to 60 children into Reception each September.

 

In order to apply for a place at our school, you must register with your home local authority. Our school is part of Wokingham Borough Council.  As we are a Catholic School, you may wish to complete a supplementary information form (SIF) which is available in the admissions forms section below (if applicable). This would ensure your child is placed in the appropriate faith category.

 

The SIF is handed in directly to our school office - it is separate to the online form.

 

All applications are welcome. Our children come from a variety of faiths and backgrounds and we cover a wide geographical area. Places will be allocated at this school as in previous years i.e. applications will be considered by the governing board according to our published admissions policy. Baptised Catholic children are given first preference. Baptised Catholics must complete the SIF to be placed in the top categories according to our admissions policy.

 

If you do not complete the supplementary information form, together with all supporting documentation, by the closing date of Wednesday 15 January 2020, your child will not be placed in the appropriate faith criteria and this is likely to affect your child's chance of being offered a place.

 

The national deadline for primary school applications is Wednesday 15 January 2020. You can still make changes to your decisions up to this deadline.

 

National Offer Day is Thursday 16 April 2020.
