Reception Admissions

St Mary’s CE Primary School is a Church of England School.  We work in partnership with Haringey Admissions Service to make applying for a place at our school as simple a process as possible.

A parent who wants to apply for a place in Reception class for their child should complete a Common Application Form (CAF) from their local authority in the academic year their child will be 4 naming St Mary’s CE Primary School, N8.  Children start Reception the September after their 4th Birthday.

Please read the ‘Admissions Arrangements and Criteria’ document for the relevant year on the right hand side of this page to find out about our Open and Foundation places and the oversubscription criteria.

All Applicants:

  • Applications must be made online by midnight on the 15th January via your Local Authority. Haringey residents can find the relevant information at haringey.gov.uk/schooladmissions.

Applicants for a Foundation place:

  • If applying for a Foundation place (see Admissions Arrangements and Criteria document to the right), a parent should also complete a Supplementary Form and arrange for a Ministers Form to be completed so that the Governors may consider the application fully. These are available in the download section on the right had side of this page, or from the school office.
  • These forms should be filled in and returned to the school with a copy of a utility bill by 16th January.

The Local Authority will contact the applicant, usually in mid-April, to inform them if their application has been successful.  If the applicant has not been given a place at the school they will be placed on a waiting list (see Admissions Arrangements and Criteria document).

In-year applicants should first contact Haringey Council School Admissions department and let them know that they would like to apply to the school.

Haringey will inform the applicant if there are spaces available at the school, if there are, they will contact the school and give them the applicant’s details.

The school will then contact the applicant and ask them to come in for a pre-admission’s meeting. If satisfactory, the applicant will be asked to complete an In-year application form. If there are no spaces available at the school, the applicant can be put on a waiting list until a space becomes available.

We welcome visitors and if you would like a tour of the school please contact the school office for a date and time.
