In the event of a tie-break situation, this will be decided by random allocation and will take place in the presence of an independent witness. The below criteria has been summarised, for the full admissions policy and arrangements please visit the school website: www.st-gregorys.ealing.sch.uk Where the number of applications is greater than the planned admission number, applications will be considered against the criteria set out below.

Catholic Looked After children and Catholic children who have been adopted (or made subject to child arrangements orders or special guardianship orders) immediately following having been looked after. 2. Baptised Catholic children with a Certificate of Catholic Practice who are resident in the parish of St Benedict at time of application (according to attached map). N.B. Equal consideration will be given to baptised children with a Certificate of Catholic Practice, who are resident in the parish of St Benedict’s, but who regularly worship at their own Catholic National Church, (e.g. Italian, Polish etc.,) or their own Eastern Rite Uniate Catholic Church. 3. Baptised Catholic children with a Certificate of Catholic Practice who are resident outside the parish of St Benedict. 4. Other Catholic children. 5. Other looked after children and children who have been adopted (or made subject to child arrangements orders or special guardianship orders) immediately having been looked after. 6. Children of Catechumens and baptised children of the Eastern Christian Churches. 7. Christians of other Christian denominations whose application is supported by a letter from their minister/faith leader confirming membership of the faith community. 8. Children of other faiths whose application is supported by a letter from their minister/faith leader confirming membership of the faith community. 9. Any other children. Sibling priority Attendance of a sibling at the school at the time of application . (Not including the Nursery). (Sibling is defined as: brother/sister/ half brother/half sister and in every case the child should be living in the same family unit at the same address.) The sibling priority rule applies within each of the oversubscription criteria. 40 Starting Primary School 2018 Multiple applications Where the final place in the Reception classes is offered to a child who has other siblings applying for a place in the same Reception classes, these siblings will also be admitted. Supplementary information form (SIF) Applicants should complete St. Gregory’s Supplementary Information Form (SIF) which is supplied in the application pack. The Supplementary Information Form (SIF) is available from the school or the local authority and should be completed and returned to the school by the closing date. If you do not complete and submit the SIF by the closing date, the governing body may be unable to consider your application fully. Certificate of Catholic practice (CCP) Applicants applying under criteria 2 and 3 must submit a certificate of Catholic practice by the closing date. ‘Certificate of Catholic Practice’ means a certificate issued by the family’s parish priest (or the priest in charge of the church where the family attends Mass) in the form laid down by the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales. It will be issued if the priest is satisfied that at least one Catholic parent or carer (along with the child, if he or she is over seven years old) have (except when it was impossible to do so) attended Mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation for at least five years (or, in the case of the child, since the age of seven, if shorter). It will also be issued when the practice has been continuous since being received into the Church if that occurred less than five years ago. It is expected that most Certificates will be issued on the basis of attendance. A Certificate may also be issued by the priest when attendance is interrupted by exceptional circumstances which excuse from the obligation to attend on that occasion or occasions.
