Primary Admission Policy for
Christ the King School
within Stockton Local Authority
Christ the King School was founded by the Catholic Church to provide education for baptised Catholic children. The school is run by its governing body as part of the Catholic church in accordance with its Trust Deed and Instrument of Government and seeks at all times to be witness to Jesus Christ.
Whenever there are more applications than places available priority will always be given to Catholic applicants in accordance with the oversubscription criteria listed below. By applying to the school parents or carers are declaring their support for the aims and ethos of the school.
The Governing Body is the Admissions Authority and is responsible for determining the school’s admissions policy. The planned admission number for September 2017 is 60.
The partner parishes are:
– Christ the King
– St. Patricks
– St. Therese
The Admissions Policy Criteria will be applied on an equal preference basis.
How and When to apply:
Applications must be made on the Local Authority Common Application Form. Parents applying to a voluntary aided Roman Catholic school should also complete the supplementary information form. All forms must be returned by the closing date set by the local authority.
Any applications received after the closing date will be accepted, but considered after those received before/by the closing date.
Children who have a statement of Special Needs Education, which names our school, will be admitted to the school.
Parents are asked to note that admission to the nursery unit is no guarantee of entry into the main school.
Where there are insufficient places available to meet all parental preferences, priority will be given to applications in the following order:
(First priority in each category will be given to siblings (see note 3) that is, children who will have older brothers or sisters attending the school in September 2017).
1) ‘Children looked after’ (in public care) from Catholic families and children from Catholic families that where previously ‘looked after’ but ceased to be so because they became adopted or became subject to residence or special guardianship order, immediately following having been looked after.
2) Roman Catholic children whose home address is within the parishes of Christ the King, Saint Patrick’s and Saint Therese of Lisieux.
3) Roman Catholic children of members of school staff who have been employed at the school for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made.
4) Other Roman Catholic children.
5) Other ‘children looked after’ (in public care) and other children previously ‘looked after’ but ceased to be so because they became adopted or became subject to a residence or special guardianship order immediately following having been looked after.
6) Other children of members of school staff who have been employed at the school for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made.
7) Children of other Christian denominations, or of other Faiths, whose parents or carers are in sympathy with the aims and ethos of the school and whose application is supported in writing by a minister or religion or an appropriate religious leader.
8) Children whose parents or carers confirm in writing they are in sympathy with the aims and ethos of the school.
9) Other children.
