The Board of Directors of Christ the King Catholic Collegiate exercises full control and responsibility over the admission of children into the St. Teresa's Catholic Primary School. Applications are invited from parents whose preference is a Catholic education. Governors exercise procedures for admission, in accordance with legal requirements and the recommendations of the Archdiocese of Birmingham.
You are welcome to register your interest in a school place at the school office at any time following the birth of your child. By doing this you will receive invitations to meetings for prospective parents which will include a tour of the school. However, formal applications for Nursery or Reception must be made online via your Local Authority website.
If there is over subscription within a category, the Governors will give priority to children living closest to the school as measured by a straight line to the main gate.
It is important to note that securing a Nursery place does not guarantee a place in the Reception classes.
Furthermore, admission to St. Teresa’s does not guarantee a place at one of the Catholic high schools.
Residents in Stoke-on-Trent should apply for a school place here.
Residents in Staffordshire should apply for a school place here.
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 via the local authority by completing the in-year admissions application form which is available from the school or clicking here. As a Catholic School, parent will also need to complete a Supplementary Information Form in addition to the standard application form that is submitted to the local authority. Supplementary Information Forms can be obtained from the school by contacting the school office on 01782 307550 or email@example.com. Supplementary Information Forms must be returned directly to the school at firstname.lastname@example.org. If a Supplementary Information Form is not submitted directly to the school this may affect the priority given to the application and could affect the likelihood of your child being offered a place.
The local authority will forward your application to the school for consideration by the governors.
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. The full admission arrangements can be accessed from here or by contacting the school office to request a hard copy. Parents are advised to read the admission arrangements carefully before making their application.
If there are no places available, the local authority will notify you of this decision on behalf of the governors and the child will be added to the waiting list. Please see the admission arrangements for more details regarding waiting lists.
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 its receipt, but the aim is to notify applicants of the outcome of their application within 10 school days of its 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 Mrs. Rushton on 01782 307550. You may also wish to discuss in-year applications with the local authority.
