Admission to our School and Nursery Class


This page provides information regarding applying for a place at St. Mary's Catholic Primary School.

Your child does not have to be baptised Catholic to attend our school.   We encourage applications from children of all faiths and none and look forward to welcoming all children into our school community and supporting them to achieve their full potential in an environment where they are nurtured, valued and respected for the unique individuals they all are.


If your child is a Baptised Catholic it is the parents responsibility to provide proof of this, in the form of a Baptism Certificate, which should be provided to school along with your application form. 


Applications for Reception Class are made as part of the North Tyneside Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme.  Information about this scheme, our school's admission policy and the appeals process can be found in the documents made available on this page. 


Applications for our Nursery Class are made directly to the school.   St. Mary's is able to offer the Universal 15 hour offer for 3 and 4 year olds and also the 30 hour offer for eligible families.  Both of these offers provide 'Qualified Teacher Led' provision for children for all hours. 

The school's  Morning and Out of School Clubs are also able to offer extended hours care to those who require it.   Information on how to make applications for our nursery class is provided below.


Please contact our school office if you have any further questions or queries regarding admission to our school.
