Statutory Info & Policies
St Thomas More Catholic Primary School is a voluntary-aided school. This means that the governing body is responsible for admissions rather than the local authority. It is a statutory requirement that we review our admissions policy each year in line with guidance from the Archdiocese of Birmingham. This policy is the published on our web site. We also publish our supplementary form which should be completed by the parents of Catholic children and signed by their priest. On this page you will find our current admissions policy (2016-17) along with our policies for children who will be starting school in September 2017 and September 2018.
Charging & Remissions
Equality Objectives for 2017-18
1) To diminish the difference between disadvantaged children and their peers in the 2009-10 cohort so that more of them achieve in line with national expectations as they move into key stage 2
2) To close the achievement gap between boys and girls in the 2011-12 cohort as they move into key stage 1
3) To promote accelerated progress for all groups in key stage 2
4) To raise achievement for all groups in writing so that progress and attainment are in line with figures for reading and maths

The school has a large number of policies which are reviewed on a regular cycle. All policies are reviewed at least once every three years and many are reviewed annually. This list of policies is not exhaustive but contains most of the main ones. Again, any can be made available in hard copy upon request. If you can’t find the policy you are looking for please ask at the school office.
