Admission Arrangements

 

 

In-Year Admissions

 

An application can be made for a place for a child at any time outside the admission round and a child will be admitted where there are available places. An application should be made to the school by completing the in-year admissions application form which is available here. A paper copy of the application form can be obtained by contacting the school office.

 

Completed application forms must be returned by: 

  • Email: enquiry@st-martindeporres.bham.sch.uk 
  • Post: St Martin de Porres Catholic Primary School, Oakland Road, Moseley, Birmingham, B13 9DN.
  • In-person: You are welcome to bring an application form to the school office at the above address.

 

Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria will be applied. Parents are advised to read the admission arrangements carefully before making their application – insert link paper copies are available at the school office.

 

If there are no places available, the child will be added to the waiting list.

You will be advised of the outcome of your application in writing within 15 school days of its receipt.

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