First Admissions 2023
Applications are accepted from November 2022 – January 2023 for first admission (Reception) and transfer from infant to junior/primary education.
You will be notified in April 2023 if you have been given a school place.
Parents whose children have not been offered a place at a school in the normal admissions round will be added to the school’s waiting list unless they have been offered a place at a higher preference school. The list will remain open until the end of the academic application year. If a parent wishes their child to remain on the waiting list, they must re-apply each academic year. The local authority manages the waiting list for St Joseph’s Catholic Primary and Nursery Academy.
An application can be made for a place for a child at any time outside the admission round and the child will be admitted where there are available places. An application should be made to Nottinghamshire County Council by completing the LA Common Application Form http://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/ and following the instructions on the LA website.
If applying for a place on faith grounds you will also need to complete a Supplementary Information Form (please see form below) and return this to St Joseph’s Catholic Academy, Main Road, Boughton, NG22 9JE.
Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out in the admission arrangements for 2023-2024, will be applied.
Parents are advised to read the admission arrangements carefully before making their application.
If there are no places available, the child will be added to the waiting list. Please see the admission arrangements for more details.
You will be advised of the outcome of your application in writing as soon as possible. Applicants must be informed of the outcome of their application within 15 school days of receipt, but the aim is to notify applicants of the outcome of their application within 10 school days of receipt.
You have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel if your application is unsuccessful.
If you have any questions in relation to in-year admissions please contact St Joseph’s Catholic Academy.
You may also wish to discuss in-year applications with the local authority, Nottinghamshire County Council on 0300 500 8080.
