2020-21 Admissions Arrangements Consultation

There will be changes made to the primary and secondary school admissions arrangements for 2020-21.

The changes required by the CES have been approved and will be incorporated into the Nottingham Diocese policies; they will apply from the 2020-21 admissions round.

Nottingham Roman Catholic Diocese Education Service (NRCDE) will take comments received during the consultation, consider them and make any amendments to the policies as necessary.

If you have any comments to make about the policy, please send them to the following address:



Applying for a September 2019 Reception Class (FS2) place at

Blessed Robert Widmerpool Catholic Voluntary Academy

Detailed guidance on applying for school places is available from the school admissions website Parents should familiarise themselves with this information. Parents wanting to apply for a place at a Catholic school should also ensure they are familiar with the admissions policy for their preferred school, which is available via the school website. However, the following information may also be helpful to consider:

Catholic schools are established to serve their local Catholic parish communities but applications for places are also welcome from Catholics of other parishes and from all parents and carers, regardless of faith or background, who would like their children to be educated in a Christian environment. Queries regarding Parish boundaries should be directed to the school office who will be able to answer most queries. A map outlining the boundary for the Parish of Corpus Christi can be found below.

Blessed Robert Widmerpool Catholic Voluntary Academy has a published admissions number of 30.

It is not possible to guarantee a place at any school and so parents are encouraged to apply to more than one school. Most local authorities provide for parents to express preferences for at least 4 schools which parents should place in order of preference. Catholic families are not limited to applying solely to their Catholic parish school. Parents can apply to other local Catholic primary schools if they wish and the inclusion of other Catholic schools in your preferences increases the chances of being offered a place at a Catholic school.
