Notice to variation of Admissions policy

Dear Parents,

I would like to inform you that due to the impact of COVID-19 the diocese are varying the admissions policy for the school in the faith criteria aspect.  Normally parents who have attended church for at least 6 months could apply to the school on a faith grounds.  As Churches have been closed for a significant amount of time the wording of this has been changed.


The wording has been changed to:

In the event that during the period specified for attendance at worship the church [has been closed for public worship and has not provided alternative premises for that worship, the requirements of these [admissions] arrangements in relation to attendance will only apply to the period when the church or alternative premises have been available for public worship.

Thank you for your understanding.


Mr B-M
