Below is an excerpt from our new Admissions Policy. Click on the link above for a fully copy of it.

St. Charles is a Roman Catholic Primary School provided by the Diocese of Salford and is maintained by Lancashire Local Authority as a voluntary Aided Primary School.  The school’s Governing Body is the Admissions Authority and is responsible for taking decisions on applications for admissions.  For the school year commencing September 2016 the Governing Body has set its planned admission number at 30.

 

Although St Charles is a Roman Catholic school, it is the school’s policy and desire that, regardless of religious denomination, every child and family is made to feel welcome, that every child be seen as equal and that all families feel an integral part of our community.  In times where Catholic children cannot fill all available places at St Charles, our policy is intended to ensure the warmth and love of our school is seamlessly afforded to all children and their families.

 

Admission to the school will be made by the Governing Body in accordance with the stated parental preferences it receives, subject to the following criteria which will be used to form a priority order if there are more applications for admission than the school has places available.
