School Admission Policy
As St Margaret Clitherow's is now part of the St Oswald's Academy Trust our admission policy has changed. However the policy still remains firmly based in the Gospel values that make our school what it is today...
St Margaret Clitherow’s is a Catholic School in the Diocese of Middlesbrough. All those involved in our school – parents, pupils, staff and governors – share a common purpose and common Gospel values. This means they are committed to promoting:
At St Margaret Clitherow’s, we believe that with
Jesus at the heart of everything we do, we will
enable every member of our school family to :
educate children and provide opportunities for all members of our school family to achieve to the best of their ability; aspire to be the best that they can and belong to a school family who love and protect each other, and praise God by following in the footsteps of Jesus.
The Governors have the duty to ensure that the school is conducted in accordance with the values reflected in the school’s mission statement. They are also legally responsible for ensuring that the distinctive nature of the Catholic education is preserved and developed.
Admissions to the Nursery at St Margaret Clitherow’s does not guarantee admission to St Margaret Clitherow’s Primary School. It is part of the St Oswald's Academy Trust and therefore the governing body is responsible for admissions.
Please find here a copy of the St Oswald's Academy Admissions policy for 2015/2016 that is currently up for consultation. Please read the policy and if you have anything to add to the consultation process please send your comments to the school email address on the website by Friday 9th January 2015
