In Year Admissions - September 2021 - July 2022

If you would like to apply to Stella Maris Catholic Primary School for an In-Year-Admission, you must complete the IYAF Form below and return to the school office with our Supplementary Information Form (SIF).  


Parents will be notified of the outcome of their application in writing within 15 school days although we will always aim to notify parents within 10 school days.


At Stella Maris, we maintain a clear, fair, and objective waiting list in line with our oversubscription criteria for that year.   If we are unable to offer your child a place at the time of application, we will offer to hold your details on our wait list for any future spaces that become available.     We will hold a copy of your In-Year-Admission form and Supplementary Form in order that each child is ranked in line with the published oversubscription criteria.


Where more than one child is on the wait list against the same criteria, we will always obtain accurate distance information from Kent County Council to ensure fairness.


The oversubscription criteria summary for September 2021 - July 2022 is :-


  1. Catholic Children in Local Authority Care or Previously in Local Authority Care

  2. Baptised members of the Catholic Church with a brother or sister in the school at the time of entry

  3. Other baptised members of the Catholic Church

  4. Other looked after children, and other previously looked after children

  5. The presence of a brother or a sister in the school at the time of entry;

  6. Distance from home to school. In the event of any of the above criteria being oversubscribed, priority will be given based on distance, with the closest being given higher priority.  In the unlikely event that two or more children in all other ways have equal eligibility for the last available place at the school, the names will be issued a number and drawn randomly to decide which child should be given the place.


Full explanation of the terms for the above can be found in our prospectus of Admissions Code for this year.
