Consultations on Admissions

St Thomas More Catholic Primary School have been advised by our Diocese that we need to consult on  a change to the over-subscription description in our Admission policy. The advice from the  Director of Education for the Catholic Diocese of Southwark  is as follows:

From September 2025 a SIF will no longer be required. All schools should be aware of the current London situation with a surplus of places and those who are not oversubscribed with Catholics can now simply ask for a Baptismal Certificate or letter of reception into the Church complying with the Adjudicator’s advice for a simple policy. The drive is to simplify the admissions process for Catholic schools, especially those who are not over-subscribed with practicing Catholics. 

As a result, we are consulting on the changes to our policy and ask that any feedback be sent to by February 10th 2024.
