APPLYING TO ST MARY MAGDALEN’S
Reception Class Admissions
Your Local Authority will have a Starting Schools booklet detailing the processes and schools available within their authority. This may be accessible on their website. Details about the school will be found in the Lewisham Starting Schools guide. You will also need to fill in a Supplementary Information Form which your local clergy should complete and return to school. This can be obtained from the school or is available below.
Casual admissions and admissions during the year
In the first instance you should always contact your home Local Authority and ask to speak to admissions. They will be able to advise you what you should do next: St Mary Magdalen’s cannot offer places directly - the offer must come from the Local Authority.
Admission Arrangements for Pupils with SEN and Disabilities (SEND)
The Governing Body may increase the priority of an application within a category where evidence is provided at the time of the application of an exceptional social, medical, pastoral and other need of the child, which can most appropriately be met at this school.
There are a number of prospective parents meetings arranged in the Autumn term to give you an opportunity to see the school in action and meet the children. You don't need to sign up, just turn up on the day. We look forward to showing you around!
If you are starting school at a different time during the year, please contact the school to arrange a visit.
