We would welcome you applying for a place at our school. To do this you must follow the correct process for your child’s age as detailed below. As you are aware we have been unable to hold our usual meetings to explain the necessary paperwork and procedures for applying to St Antony's.

We will continue to support you in the application process to ensure that you are successful in your application. We have compiled a range of information and support resources to help you with your application. Before submitting a primary school application, we strongly recommend all families read the autumn 2020 edition of the local authorities ‘Starting Primary School’ guide.

Normal Admissions (for September 2021 entry)

The staff, governing body and pupils of St Antony’s Catholic Primary School would welcome you applying for a place at our school. To do this you must follow the correct process for your child’s age as detailed below.

We are an academy school which means we are our own admission authority but to ensure continuity across the borough we follow the London Borough of Newham’s admissions processes.

All applications for this school must be made through London Borough of Newham’s Pupil Services, not this school.

All reception 2021 applications must be made through the family’s home local authority. For children living in Newham, families must apply via London Borough of Newham. For children living outside Newham, whose family wants them to attend this school their application must be made through their home borough naming this school as a preference on their application.

Remember, parents/carers must apply for a reception place in this school, even if the child:

  • Attends our nursery
  • Has a brother or sister attending this school

Before submitting a reception application we strongly recommend all families read the autumn 2021 edition of the local authorities ‘Starting Primary School’ guide and find out information about the school you are interested in.

Reception School Admissions - Reception 2021

For all children born from 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017 inclusive, their parents/carers will need to apply for a reception class place in an infant or primary school for September 2021 entry.

National closing date for on time reception applications 15 January 2021

National offer date for on time reception applicants 16 April 2021 

To apply for a Reception place at St. Antony’s Catholic Primary School for 2020/21 You will need to:

School Finder

We recommend you use the Newham School Finder tool to determine the location of your preferred Newham schools and calculate home to school distances.

Mid-Phase Admissions (In Year)

If your family arrives in Newham during the school year 2020/2021 and your child needs a school place in the borough you must complete an In Year form and you are usually given a place within 10 days.

The place offered may not be at the school you prefer as that school may not have a suitable place available.

In Year Admissions for September 2020 to July 2021 (Year Groups: Reception to Year 6)

Before submitting an In Year school application we strongly recommend all families read the autumn 2020 edition of the local authorities ‘Starting Primary School’ guide and find out information about the process.

Supplementary Information Form (SIF)

As part of our admission arrangements we require a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) if an applicant wants their child to be consider under our faith based criteria (priority groups). If an applicant does not complete and submit a SIF or does not want to be considered under our faith based criteria (priority groups) the child will be automatically added to the lowest priority group when we rank the applications.

A SIF is not an application form so cannot be considered unless an application is made.

Starting Nursery

To apply for a Nursery place at St. Antony’s Catholic Primary School for 2020/21 You will need to:

  • complete common admissions form (CAF) online at: www.eadmissions.org.uk
  • complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF)
  • provide a reference from your Parish Priest (or equivalent for other practicing Christians or other faiths)

Paper versions of the SIF are available for collection from the school’s Main Office.

The closing date for applications for a Nursery place in 2020/21 is 31st March 2020.

Primary to Secondary Transfer for September 2021

Information on the year 7 application process:

Over Subscription Procedure

Candidates who are unsuccessful in securing a place will be offered the opportunity of being placed on a waiting list. The waiting list will be maintained in order of the over subscription criteria, outlined in the Newham Catholic Deanery Admissions Policy and not in the order in which applications are received or added to the list. Names will be removed on the last school day at the end of every academic year and parents/carers will need to reapply for a place at the school if they wish their child to be considered for a place at the school in the new academic year starting in September.
