Message from the Headteacher
We are delighted that you are considering making an application for your child to join our wonderful school. St Alban & St. Stephen Catholic Primary School is a very special place where our pupils are supported on their educational journey by a fantastic, committed teaching staff. I am so proud to be the Headteacher and I can promise you that your child will be cherished at our school.
Catholic life is at the heart of our school and our staff work hard to develop and support the faith of each child who attends. We place great importance on relationships and positive behaviour, encouraging respect, co-operation and consideration.
As a Catholic school, you will see that our admissions criteria prioritise children from practising Catholic families. As such, we require evidence of regular attendance at Mass, and being known to your priest. I would recommend that you discuss the certificate of Catholic practice with your parish priest, or the priest of the church you normally attend, at an early stage. St. Alban & St. Stephen Catholic Primary School is a popular school and we normally have to apply our oversubscription criteria.
Finally, I wanted to remind prospective parents that as part of our acceptance procedures you will be asked to sign an agreement with the school, agreeing to co-operate with the school in your child’s Catholic education. I look forward to welcoming you and your child to St. Alban & St. Stephen Catholic Primary School & Nursery.

We offer a combination of 15 and 30 hour provision depending on your child’s needs. Further information is available in the Options Form below.
Please complete the Nursery Application and Options Forms which are available to download below or from the School office firstname.lastname@example.org.
These forms should be returned to the school office with a copy of your child’s baptismal certificate and a Certificate of Catholic Practice, if these are applicable. We also require a proof of address (a utility or council tax bill or tenancy agreement dated within the last 3 months).
The Certificate of Catholic Practice is available from the church where you usually worship.
