We are a voluntary aided maintained school which means we are our own admission authority but to ensure continuity across the borough we follow the London Borough of Newham’s admissions processes.

Supplementary Information Form (SIF)

As part of our admission arrangements we require a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) if an applicant wants their child to be consider under our faith based criteria (priority groups).  If an applicant does not complete and submit a SIF or does not want to be considered under our faith based criteria (priority groups) the child will be automatically added to the lowest priority group when we rank the applications.

Fair Access

The law requires that each local authority must have a Fair Access Protocol (FAP), agreed with the majority of shcools in its area to ensure that for In Year admissions unplaced children, especially the most vulnerable, are offered a place at a suitable school as quickly as possible.  In agreeing a protocol the local authority ust ensure that no school - including those with available places- is asked to take a disproportionate number of children who have been excluded from other schools, or who hve challenging behaviour.   At Michael's Catholic primary has signed up to the LB Newham Fair Access Protocol

In the current Covid19 lockdown St Michael’s will be accepting applications for nursery places via email.

If your child is 2 years old or over please download the application form complete it and send it via email, along with supporting documents required, to: 
admin@st-michaels.newham.sch.uk

Once the lockdown has ended parents will be required come into school to provide the school with the original documents along with the Certificate of Catholic Practice/letter of support from my place of worship.
