Year 3 School Place Applications –

New WCC Admission Procedures for 2019/2020

IMPORTANT INFORMATION for parents looking for a new YEAR 3 placement at St. Mary’s for the academic year 2019/20. (Note this message doesn’t apply to parents of children ALREADY in Year 2)

St. Mary’s offer four extra places in YEAR 3, and in previous years parents applied for these extra places as they would for a new Reception or new Year 7 place, via the WCC Admission’s website.

However, WCC has changed the application process for Year 3s in primary schools and this will no longer be the case. These applications will now be processed as if they were ‘In year applications’ and parents will be allowed to apply for these places.

Parents in this position and who are hoping for one of these places, (or if you know of somebody who is looking for a place in Year 3) are now strongly advised to speak to Mrs McDonnell in the office (on Tuesdays) and she will advise and remind parents what to do at the appropriate time.
