Reception Admissions

St. Scholastica’s Primary School is a Catholic Voluntary Aided school that provides a Catholic education for all our pupils from Nursery to Year 6. It is expected that all families that make applications to the school desire a Catholic education for their child and will give their full support for the aims and ethos of our school.

Reception Admissions

Application for admission to St Scholastica’s Reception class is completed online during the year before the child is due to start school. Further information on admission procedures can be found in the Starting Schools in Hackney booklet below, available from the Hackney Learning Trust. Supplementary forms are available from the school or can be downloadable below. A maximum of 30 children can be admitted into the Reception Class.

It is a legal requirement that all children receive full-time education from the beginning of the school term following their fifth birthday. However, the policy in Hackney is that children who are about to reach their fifth birthday receive full-time education.

  1. Apply for your child’s place online
  2. Fill in the Supplementary Information Form (SIF) below
  3. Also please bring into the school, proof of address, birth certificate and baptism certificate (if applicable).
