Reminder to parents applying for Reception places for September 2024.
The closing date for applications is 15TH JANUARY 2024. Please follow this link to apply:
Parents are reminded that for applications to be considered under the Catholic faith criteria, there is a requirement for baptism to take place by this date also. Please take prompt action if you wish your child to be baptised and contact your parish office.
If you are applying for a place at St Sebastian's we ask that you also complete a Supplementary Faith Request Form (please see link below) which is to be returned to school via email to
firstname.lastname@example.org or by post:
St Sebastian's Catholic Primary School
Please give details of your child’s baptism on this form and return to school by the 15th January 2024 for your application to be ranked correctly. For those children baptised in St Sebastian’s or St Oswald's church, you should state the approximate date of baptism and the parish records will be checked. We require a copy of the baptism certificate if your child was baptised in another parish. Any questions please contact the school office on 260 9697 or via the above email.
