There aren't any consultation processes underway at this time.
Parents are reminded that for applications to be considered under the Catholic faith criteria, there is a requirement for baptism to take place prior to application. You are reminded to take prompt action if baptism has not already taken place. As our churches reopen parish priests are able to schedule and confirm baptisms with parents in accordance with the safe operation of their church, and make access to baptism certficates where required. If you have any concerns about this in your parish please contact the education department at firstname.lastname@example.org
For those children of other faiths seeking a place in a Catholic school there is no requirement for evidence of attendance; a baptism certificate or confirmation in writing that the applicant is a member of their faith community from an appropriate minister of religion is the requirement in this circumstance.
