Catholic Primary School and Admissions Group

The Background

From the outset, a parish school was part of the plan for the Cockfosters Catholic Community. When the parish was founded in 1936 it was a condition from the Diocese of Westminster that it should have a church and school. This occurred at that time as a fee-paying school run by the Benedictine sisters. This is now a separate non-Catholic school at Cockfosters.

The absence of a parish school was the reason that the Catholic Primary School Group was originally formed. This route, as has been discussed with the Diocese, is currently closed. A copy of the project can be obtained from Daniel Keane **

Next steps and the future

As a group, we have now taken a different path and support parish families should they seek help in their applications to local Catholic primary schools. We also help them with appeals.

In these matters should you, as a parent or guardian, require guidance and support on the admissions procedures for local Catholic Primary Schools, please contact the Catholic Primary  Schools Admissions Group by  sending  an email request to Daniel Keane **

In addition, we as a group also promote and share occasional readings and articles with the parish associated with Catholic Education in society and internationally.

Here Pope Francis has offered to the Gravissimum Educationis Foundation three criteria to be effective in Catholic Education. He has said that these are identity, quality and care for the common good and that these  are essential to the Catholic educator’s task.
