Admissions

Admissions Arrangements 2021/22

Following direction from the Department of Education and the Diocese of Rochester, Aquinas Church of England Education Trust, the admission authority for St Nicholas CE Primary School, is seeking to amend the already determined admission arrangements for 2021/22 for these academies. The amendment relates to how the admission criteria based on church attendance will be determined during the period when places of worship were closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The changes are detailed in the documents found here.   

Please note that our previous Supplementary Information Form (SIF), has now been discontinued. A new form has been approved by the Diocese and uploaded. This is available now for admissions 2022-23.

Should your church be without an incumbent (Vicar, Priest, Pastor) please ask the church warden, who needs to have known your child for 2 years or more, to complete our application forms. Both church administrators and Area Deans are also able to do this, again, having known your child for 2 years or more.

In-Year Admissions

Applications for In-Year admissions are made directly to the London Borough of Bromley https://www.bromley.gov.uk/info/13/primary_school_admissions/72/making_an_application_for_primary_school/3

In the normal admissions round or at any point in the normal year of entry, if a place is available and there is no waiting list, the child will be admitted [except where the “twice excluded” rule applies].

For in-year applications received for all other year groups, if a place is available and there is no waiting list, the child will be admitted subject to the admission authority being able to refuse admission if it has good reason to believe that the child may display challenging behaviour and thus refer the child to the Fair Access Protocol.

If more applications are received than there are places available, then applications will be ranked in accordance with the oversubscription criteria above. If a place cannot be offered at this time you have a right of appeal. You will be offered the opportunity of being placed on a waiting list.

Please note that the school will contact the church to request a reference and not the parent.

If you missed the presentations on 16th and 17th November, please see the uploaded version. Unfortunately, there are fewer images than the live presentation as we have taken out all images of the children. Thank you for your understanding.
