St Joseph's Catholic Primary School serves the parish of Our Lady of the Assumption. You do not have to live within the parish in order to be considered for a place at St Joseph's. 

Governors will only apply the oversubscription criteria for admissions, if applicants exceed the number of places available. 

The parish map shows the parish boundaries. Please note that where a road is on the boundary, it is the side of the road within the boundary which is within the parish.

On the advice of the Education Commission of the Archdiocese of Southwark, we wish to share the following statement in order to clarify how our faith-based oversubscription criteria will be interpreted whilst churches are closed or attendance at church is not possible due to COVID19.

This statement has been shared widely with parishes in order to ensure that determinations made by parish priests concerning regular practice of the faith are being made on a consistent basis.

The suspension of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass was announced on 18th March 2020 by Bishops' Conference of England and Wales. If a parent/carer attended Mass at particular parish (or parishes) prior to 18th March 2020 then they will be considered to have attended Mass in that parish (or parishes) regularly since that time. This will remain the case until the Sunday obligation is reintroduced by the Bishops        

August 2020

Would you like to visit St Joseph's? We are happy to arrange socially distanced visits or arrange virtual meetings for prospective parents.
