Dear Parents/Carers,

We would welcome your application for a place for your child at St Michael's. To do this you must follow the correct process for your child’s age as detailed below.

Normal Admissions
If your child was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016, you will need to apply for a reception class place in St Michael's Catholic Primary School for September 2020.

If your child lives in Newham you will need to apply via London Borough of Newham. But if your child lives outside Newham, but you want them to go to school in Newham, you will need to apply through the local authority in the borough in which you live.

Remember, you must always apply for a place, even if your child:

  • Already attends the nursery of your preferred school
    OR
  • They have a brother or sister who attends the schools

As we are a Catholic School, if you would like your child to be considered under our faith based criterion you must complete and return our Supplementary Information Form to the school.

 

Reception Admission for entry from September 2020 

School Finder - We recommend you use the Newham School Finder tool to determine the location of your preferred Newham schools and calculate home to school distances.

Infant to junior school transition

If your child was born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013 and attends an infant school, you will need to apply for a year 3 junior place in an infant or primary school for September 2020. If they attend a primary school NOT an infant school you have the choice of your child staying at their primary school or applying to change to another school. If they are happy in their primary school you do not need to take any action.

If your child lives in Newham you will need to apply via London Borough of Newham. But if your child lives outside Newham, but you want him or her to go to school in Newham, you will need to apply through the local authority in the borough you live in.

If you wish to apply for St Michael's, please follow the steps below for “in year admissions” below:

 

In Year admissions into primary school (aka mid term and mid phase)

If your family arrives in Newham during the school year 2019/2020 and your child needs a school place in the borough you must complete an In Year form and you are usually given a place within 10 days.

The place offered may not be at the school you prefer as that school may not have a suitable place available.

If your child lives in Newham you will need to apply via London Borough of Newham. But if your child lives outside Newham, but you want him or her to go to school in Newham, you will need to apply through the local authority in the borough in which you live.

To maximise your opportunities of getting a place at one of your preferred secondary schools name six schools with at least one being your local school.
