Admission Arrangements

We know that choosing the right school for your child is one of the biggest decisions you will make and can make a huge difference to their future.  Here at Holy Family, we warmly welcome you to visit us so that you can see for yourself whether we are the right choice for you.   Please telephone our school office who will be able to arrange an appointment with one of our experienced team on 01909 473917.

If you decide that we are the right school for your family, we ask that you complete two forms.

1: Applications must be made on the Common Application Form.  This can be found here.  This is returned directly to Nottinghamshire Admissions team.

2: Supplementary information form (this must be returned directly to the school by the same closing date)  Supplementary Information Form 2024-25

As we are a Catholic school, our admissions policy differs slightly from other schools.  In the event that there are more applications than places, the school uses an additional criteria to prioritise places.   The supplementary information form helps us to do that.    Admission arrangement policy 2024 – 2025

The published admission number is 30 children per year. All applications for the Reception Year (also known as Foundation 2) will be considered in accordance with the admissions criteria.

All children who are allocated a place will be admitted on the first day of the autumn term.

The offer of a school place will be made by the Local Authority to all parents on the ‘offer day’ set out in the co-ordinated scheme.

The school operates a Waiting List for its intake year group in partnership with the Nottinghamshire Local Authority.  This is kept and prioritised following the over-subscription criteria until the end of the autumn term.

In year applications can be found on the Nottinghamshire County Council’s website  ‘Admissions to Schools’

We look forward to meeting you and journeying with you and your child.

Applications can be made at any time, for Foundation 1, although we do encourage parents/carers to register their child once they reach the age of two and a half years.  Children enter Foundation 1 / Nursery the term after their third birthday.

We try to be as flexible as possible to accommodate working parents and the child’s needs. Parents may select the sessions for their children through the application process. Wherever possible these requests will be met although we prioritise morning or full day allocations to maximise learning.

To register your child in Foundation 1 / Nursery you will need to complete an application form, which can either be downloaded from the link below or is readily available from the school office.
