Consultation on the admission arrangements 2020-2021

The governing body of St Francis de Sales Catholic Infant and Junior Federation invites you to view the proposed Infant admissions policy and the Junior admissions policy for 2020-2021, as well as the Supplementary Information Form (SIF) 2020-2021.


These documents are out for consultation between 10th October 2018 – 19th November 2018.


The change on which we are seeking feedback is the removal of the requirement for a ‘Certificate of Catholic Practice’. Guidance from the Diocese of Westminster has been given which states that schools should only use this certificate for admissions in exceptional circumstances if all Catholic schools in the local area are oversubscribed with Catholic children. Therefore, the requirement for a ‘Certificate of Catholic Practice’ on application has been removed.


All other criteria remain the same as previous years.


We would be pleased to receive any comments on this. The policy and SIF are on the school website. You may wish to contact the school for a hard copy of the admission arrangements which you can collect or which can be posted to you.


Please address your comments to School Business Manager at the school address, or by email to


You can also reply by phone on 020 8082923.


Please make sure to reply by 19th of November 2018.
