Admissions

shrewsbury_diocSt. Luke’s Catholic Primary School is a Catholic Primary School under the trusteeship of the Diocese of Shrewsbury. It is maintained by Telford and Wrekin Local Authority. As a Voluntary Aided School, the Governing Body is the Admissions Authority and is responsible for taking decisions on applications for admissions. The co-ordination of admissions arrangements is undertaken by the Local Authority.
ADMISSIONS TO THE SCHOOL will be made by the Governing Body. All preferences listed on the Local Authority Preference Form will be considered on an equal basis with the following set of ADMISSIONS CRITERIA forming a priority order where there are more applications for admissions than the school has places available.

  1. Children who are in the care of the Local Authority (Looked after children) and previously looked after children.
  2. Baptised Catholic children who are resident in the parish of Our Lady of the Rosary and St Luke
  3. Baptised Catholic children who are resident in the parish of Our Lady of the Rosary and St Luke for whom St Luke’s Catholic Primary School is the nearest Catholic school.
  4. Other Baptised Catholic children.
  5. Any other non Catholic children.

Notes:

Within each category the attendance of a sibling at the school at the time of enrolment will ensure the application is placed at the top of the category in which the application is made (after children in category 1).

Within each category the shortest distance from the application residence address to the school will determine the order for the category in which the application is made (after children in category 1).

Arrangements for Prospective Parents/Pupils to Visit the School

Appointments can be made to meet the Headteacher who will gladly show prospective parents and their children around the school and answer any questions.
