Admissions for Reception for September 2017

The Governing Body has sole responsibility for admissions to this school and admits 60 children to Reception class each school year.

To apply for a place at St Monica’s Catholic Primary School you must first complete an application form from the London Borough in which you live. If you live in the London Borough of Enfield, you can apply via www.enfield.gov.uk/admissions. You must also complete a Primary SIF 2018-19 and the Certificate of Catholic Practice and return these to the school. If you are Catholic you must also bring to the school office, your child’s original Baptismal Certificate marked with the seal/stamp from the Church where the Baptism took place (photocopies cannot be accepted).

The Admissions Policy for 2018-19 has now been finalized and can be viewed at St Monica’s Admissions Policy 2018-19. The only changes from the draft published for consultation in December 2016 are some revised definitions; see sections on pages 1 to 3. All Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Westminster have been instructed by the Archdiocesan Education Service to adopt these definitions in the light of a recent legal challenge.

Please read the Admissions Policy Criteria and Notes very carefully as they explain the admissions process and how the Governing Body offer places to children.  

Open afternoons for a place in Reception for 2018 will take place in November 2017 and January 2018. The open afternoons will give you a chance to view the school and ask any questions regarding the admissions process. All open afternoons will start promptly at 1.30pm.  Once the open afternoon dates have been confirmed, it is essential that you call the school office on 020 8886 4647 to book an appointment to attend one of them.
