Frequently Asked Questions:

What happens if I am unsuccessful in securing a place? 

Please call the school office and ask to join our waitlist.  Many changes happen between April and September and the applicants are ranked according to the school’s oversubscription criteria in their admission arrangements.
You will remain on this list for the entire Year and we will contact you when a space becomes available.

Do I need to get the Priest to sign my form? 

We strongly recommend you ask your parish priest to sign your application, even if you only attend occasionally.  Having your parish priest sign your form, regardless of frequency,  will help the Governing board rank your application.  Please also submit a copy of your child's baptism certificate.

For other faiths:  a signed form will also help the Governors rank your application as highly as possible.

As of the 5th June 2022, Pentecost, the Bishops of England and Wales reinstated the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days.

Parents applying for a place at St Boniface RC Primary, under a faith based criteria will need to complete a Supplementary Information Form.   Evidence of practice will be measured by frequency of attendance at Mass as validated by either a priest or minister, as was the case prior to 18th March 2020.

These arrangements apply to the admissions round for 2023 and subsequent rounds.

What if due to Covid, my child has not been baptised?  

Post Covid, we are aware that many families have not been able to have their child baptised, or have not been attending church regularly. We would encourage you to please contact your parish and look into baptismal courses and baptism dates.  Written proof from your priest that you have contacted them and started arranging this could aid your application if the Governors have tie-breakers.  It is also something that will be requested if you are applying for a Catholic Secondary school.

Can you guarantee wrap around care?  

St Boniface RC Primary have wrap-around care from 7.45am with with Breakfast Club, and up to 6pm with After School Provision.  This care is provided by our own experienced staff who know the children and is subject to availability and demand in conjunction with the main school.  Successful Reception applicants will receive paperwork with their welcome packs and all efforts are made to help children and families with space.

If my child is born in the Summer and I want to defer a Reception place, what do I do?   

Our teachers and staff can help you decide if deferring a year is right for your child. Please come and talk with the Office staff and we can arrange a meeting with the Head and class Teacher.
You must still apply for a school Reception place (in your child's actual age group) by 15 January 2023 - both online with your Borough and by returning the Supplementary form to the Office, with birth & baptism certificates please.
