Admission to St Paul's for September 2021
Please follow the link for the Tameside online application form http://www.tameside.gov.uk/admissions
For a place in Nursery please contact the school office for application details.
As St Paul's is a voluntary aided school we do ask for additional information to support your application including birth certificate and baptismal certificates as well as proof of address.
As we are unable to offer visits to school at this time, you can watch the short video clips which show the Nursery and Reception learning environments.
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 the school by completing the in-year admissions application form and returning it to https://www.tameside.gov.uk/admissions#_How_to_Apply_3
Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria for 2021/2022, as set below will be applied.
1. Catholic looked after and previously looked after children.
2. Catholic children who are resident in the parish of St Paul’s, Hyde.
3. Other Catholic children.
4. Other looked after and previously looked after children.

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. Admission appeals are managed by Tameside LA and further information can be found here http://www.tameside.gov.uk/admissions
