Our Lady Immaculate is a Catholic Primary School situated in the Archdiocese of Liverpool and is maintained by the Liverpool Local Authority. The Governing Body of the school is responsible for determining and administering the policy relating to the admission of pupils to the school. It is guided in that responsibility by:
- the requirements of the law
- the advice of the Archdiocesan Trustees on the nature and purpose of its duties
- its duty towards the school and the Catholic community it serves
- the Catholic character of the school and its Mission Statement
- recognition of the Parish boundary
The school serves in the first instance baptised Catholic children living in the Parish of Our Lady Immaculate. We consult with the LA and others in accordance with the requirements of the law and the Governing Body publish its admissions limit at prior to the commencement of each school year.
Parents must complete the Local Authority application form. Parents who wish their application to Our Lady Immaculate to be considered against the priority faith criteria should also complete the schools supplementary faith form. If the school is oversubscribed, failure to complete the supplementary form may result in your application for a place in this school being considered against lower priority criteria, as the Governing Body will have no information upon which to assess the application on the basis of the applicant’s baptism and/or membership of a faith community. Both forms should be returned to the school no later than the date highlighted in our admissions document.
