First Admissions 2024
Applications are accepted from 15th November 2023 – 15th January 2024 for first admission (Reception) and transfer from infant to junior/primary education.
You will be notified on 17 April 2024 if you have been given a school place.
Parents whose children have not been offered a place at a school in the normal admissions round will be added to the school’s waiting list unless they have been offered a place at a higher preference school. The list will remain open until the end of the academic application year. If a parent wishes their child to remain on the waiting list, they must re-apply each academic year. The local authority manages the waiting list for Blessed Robert Widmerpool Catholic Voluntary Academy.
An application can be made for a place for a child at any time outside the admission round and the child will be admitted where there are available places. An application should be made to Nottingham City Council by completing the LA Common Application Form and following the instructions on the LA website.
If you are applying for a place on faith grounds, you will also need to complete the below supplementary form and return this to:
Blessed Robert Widmerpool Catholic Voluntary Academy,
Listowel Crescent, Clifton, Nottingham NG11 9BH.
Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out in the admission arrangements for 2023/24 will be applied.
Admission Arrangements 2023 – 2024
Parents are advised to read the admission arrangements carefully before making their application.
If there are no places available, the child will be added to the waiting list. Please see the admission arrangements for more details.
You will be advised of the outcome of your application in writing as soon as possible. Applicants must be informed of the outcome of their application within 15 school days of receipt, but the aim is to notify applicants of the outcome of their application within 10 school days of receipt.
You have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel if your application is unsuccessful.
