In Year Admissions

At St. Mary's, we deal with our own in year admissions. An application can be made for a place for a child at any time outside the admission round and the child will be admitted where there are available places. An application should be made to the school by completing the in-year admissions application form and returning it to: St. Mary’s RC Primary School, Devonshire Drive, Clayton-le-Moors, Lancashire, BB5 5RJ by post or by hand.

The application form can be found below:

Parents are advised to read the admission arrangements carefully before making their application. 

If there are no places available, the child will be added to the waiting list. 

You will be advised of the outcome of your application in writing as soon as possible. Applicants must be informed of the outcome of their application within 15 school days of receipt, but the aim is to notify applicants of the outcome of their application within 10 school days of receipt.

You have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel if your application is unsuccessful.
If you have any questions in relation to in-year admissions, please contact Mrs Deborah
Schofield (school bursar). You may also wish to discuss in-year applications with the local
authority (Lancashire County Council)
