On 1st October 2020 St Mary's C of E Primary is going out to consultation on proposed changes to its 2022-23 admission arrangements.
Full details of the consultation and how to respond can be found below and on the SNMAT website - www.snmat.org.uk. All consultation information is also available (upon request) from the academy office.
Due to the temporary closure of Churches and other places of worship during the Covid19 Lockdown, (which has impacted on our normal process for verifying church attendance/faith commitment as specified in our admission arrangements), the SNMAT Trust (as our admissions authority) has applied for a variation to our 2021/22 admission arrangements. We have received confirmation that the proposed variation has been approved by the Regional School Commissioner.
Please see below our revised 2021-22 admission arrangements and Supplementary Information Form.
