St Mary’s is a Catholic voluntary aided primary school which was established by the Church to serve the parish of St Mary’s, Chipping. The Governing Body, acting in accordance with the Code of Practice and the Salford Diocesan Policy Statement is responsible for the admission of pupils.
The Admission number for the Reception Year (2020/21) is 10. Pupils are normally admitted in the September of the school year in which they reach their fifth birthday. However they are not required to attend school until the beginning of the term after their fifth birthday and so in appropriate cases, admission may be deferred until the beginning of the spring, and summer terms. If parents wish a deferment they should indicate so when accepting the offer of a place.
In the event of over–subscription the following criteria will be applied in the following order of priority.
