Below, please find information regarding the admissions process and procedures for Pope Paul School.
Please do not hesitate to contact the school on 01707 659755, or by email, if you have any queries regarding admissions to our school. (Please note that we do not have a nursery at Pope Paul.)
In-Year admissions are dealt with directly by the school. If you have moved into the area, or wish to change schools and require a place for your child, you need to complete and return a Supplementary Information form. Please telephone or email Mrs Lennox in the office to enquire about available places. The Supplementary Information Form can be downloaded below. Tel: 01707 659755 or email us here.
If no place is available, you can still apply and your application will be placed on our continued interest file. If a place becomes available at a later date, all applications on file at the time will be considered against the current admissions criteria. The admissions criteria is available to download below.
Please note for Admission to Reception, we operate as part of the County Primary Admissions Process which is open to parents from November to January – please contact Mrs Carol Lennox in the School Office on 01707 659755 to clarify procedures. You are advised to complete a Supplementary Information Form as well as the online forms.
Important dates for the Hertfordshire process can be found at https://www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/services/schools-and-education/school-admissions/primary-junior-and-middle-schools/important-dates-primary-junior-and-middle-school-admissions.aspx#
The Reception Admission Supplementary Information Form can be downloaded below. The co-ordinated process runs until July and thereafter admissions are dealt with as In-Year applications.
Consultation on the admission arrangements 2025/2026 for Pope Paul Catholic Primary School
The governing body of Pope Paul Catholic Primary School invites you to view the proposed admissions policy for 2025-2026, as well as the Supplementary Information Form (SIF) 2025-2026. These documents are out for consultation between 1st November to 13th December 2023 The key change which we are consulting on is giving a higher priority to Catechumens and members of an Eastern Christian Church. ‘catechumen’ means a member of the catechumenate of a Catholic Church. This will normally be evidenced by a certificate of reception into the order of catechumens. ‘Eastern Christian Church’ includes Orthodox Churches, and is normally evidenced by a certificate of baptism or reception from the authorities of that Church. Changes in wording and updated definitions have been included throughout. We would be pleased to receive any comments.
Please address your comments to the office at the school address, or by email email@example.com.
