Our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Primary School: admissions information

​Our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Primary School, Occupation Road, Corby,  NN17 1EE

Supplementary information

Once an application has been submitted to Northamptonshire County Council all applicants are required to lodge supplementary information with the school as follows:

  1. the applicant’s Baptismal Certificate
  2. a Priest’s Reference Form

Applicants of other Christian denominations and faiths must provide a reference from their Minister of Religion. This reference must include details of applicants’ religious practice and family involvement in activities in their place of worship.

A copy of the Priest’s Reference Form is available from the school for Catholic applicants.

Oversubscription criteria

Children who have a statement of Special Educational Needs where the school is named as the most appropriate setting for the child will be admitted. This will reduce the number of places available. If the number of applications exceeds the admission number, the following oversubscription criteria will be used to allocate places.
Places will be allocated according to the following order of priority:

  1. Baptised Catholic 'looked after' children or previously 'looked after' but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence or special guardianship order
  2. Looked after children or previously 'looked after' but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence or special guardianship order, other than baptised 'looked after' children
  3. Baptised practising Catholic siblings of children whose siblings will be in attendance at the school at the date of admission of the younger child, as verified by the baptismal certificate and Priest’s reference form
  4. Baptised practising Catholic children, as verified by the baptismal certificate and Priest’s reference form
  5. Baptised non-practising Catholic siblings of children whose siblings will be in attendance at the school at the date of admission of the younger child, as verified by the baptismal certificate
  6.  Baptised non-practising Catholic children, as verified by the baptismal certificate
  7. Siblings of other children whose siblings will be in attendance at the date of admission
  8. Children of other Christian denominations, as supported by a reference from their Minister of religion
  9. Children of other faiths, as supported by a reference from their Minister of religion
  10. All other children.

Tiebreaker

In the event that any category is over-subscribed priority will be given to applicants in order of geographical proximity to the school. The governing body will use Northamptonshire County Council’s GIS computer system to determine the distance between the applicants address and the main school entrance. Distance measurements are carried out using a straight line basis.
