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? St Boniface encourages everyone to apply as application numbers are different every year. We then apply the admissions criteria for all application forms. Having your parish priest sign your form can help the Governing board rank your application, along with including your Baptism and Birth certificates.
During COVID-19 times, we suggest parents contact their parish office to ask if their parish have attendance procedures in place, especially ahead of getting Reception applications signed.
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 talk come and talk with the Office staff.
