Admissions for Reception for September 2021

I am very sorry, but we are not able to invite parents into school to visit while we are under COVID-19 restrictions. On 1st October, we will post a video of the school and information to help you with your application.

Please read the information below very carefully so you are aware of what will be required if you wish to apply for a place for your child.

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 Supplementary Information Form (SIF) which will be posted here in October 2020. A Certificate of Catholic Practice for practising Catholics is also required, (which can be obtained from your Parish Priest). The SIF and Certificate (if applicable) must be brought to the school office any time from 1st October 2020. If you child is Baptised 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 2020-21 can be viewed at St Monica’s Admissions Policy 2020 -21. The Policy for 2021 admissions will be posted here shortly. The categories remain unchanged from the 2020 version.
