Welcome toSt Augustine's Catholic Primary School

Admissions

The admissions process is part of the Solihull local authority co-ordinated scheme.

 

The Admission Policy of the Governors of St. Augustine's Catholic Primary School is as follows:
The ethos of this school is Catholic. The school was founded by the Catholic Church to provide education for children of Catholic families. The school is conducted by its Governing Body as part of the Catholic Church in accordance with its Trust Deed and Instrument of Government and seeks at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ. We ask all parents applying for a place here to respect this ethos and its importance to the school community. This does not affect the right of parents who are not of the faith of this school to apply for and be considered for a place here.

 

Admission arrangements

The documents below explain how we will work with Solihull Council throughout the application process. They also show how places will be offered if there are more applications than places available. They are reviewed and published every year.
