The criteria for admissions is set by the governing body following guidelines set by the Archdiocese of Southwark and government legislation concerning admissions to church schools. Responsibility for admissions rests with the school governors.
The governing body has determined its admissions arrangements and policy for St Osmund's Catholic Primary School for 2021. They are no changes to the 2020 policy. The policy and supplementary information form are below:
The suspension of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass was announced on 18th March 2020 by Bishops' Conference of England and Wales. If a parent/carer attended Mass at a particular parish (or parishes) prior to 18th March 2020 then they will be considered to have attended Mass in that parish (or parishes) regularly since that time. This will remain the case until the Sunday obligation is reintroduced by the Bishops.
For information regarding admission statistics for the past three years please see the document below.
