Supplementary Form for a Reception Place
If you are applying for a Reception Place at St Winifred’s Catholic Primary School, you must fill in a supplementary form and get it signed by the priest or minister where you regularly attend services.
You must also submit an online school place application to the borough in which you live. If you need any support in this, please give us a ring and we will be happy to help.
Please note that the following paragraphs have been added to the Supplementary Form.
“On the advice of the Education Commission of the Archdiocese of Southwark the governing bodies of the Catholic primary schools in Lewisham have agreed the following statement in order to clarify how its faith-based oversubscription criteria will be interpreted whilst churches are closed or attendance at church is not possible due to COVID19. This statement has been shared widely with parishes in order to ensure that determinations made by parish priests concerning regular practice of the faith are being made on a consistent basis:
The suspension of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass was announced on 18th March 2020 by Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales. If a parent/carer attended Mass at particular parish (or parishes) prior to 18th March 2020 then they will be considered to have attended Mass in that parish (or parishes) regularly since that time. This will remain the case until the Sunday obligation is reintroduced by the Bishops.”
