Applications for places at St. Mary's are managed through Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council. This can be accessed on their school admissions page (see link below).
The Local Governing Body of St. Mary's Catholic Primary School adhere strictly to our admission criteria.
The School Admissions Code and School Admission Appeals Code came into force on 1st February 2012. In line with this, the Local Governing Body is required to publish a timetable for organising and hearing school admission appeals.
Attendance at St. Mary's Preschool does not automatically guarantee that a place will be offered in Reception class of St. Mary's Catholic Primary School. Parents must apply for a Reception place in exactly the same way as parents of children not attending Preschool. All applications will be considered against the oversubscription criteria by the Board of Directors in the same way, regardless of whether the child does or does not attend Preschool at the time of application.
