Parents/guardians, these instructions apply if:

- You are parishioners of Ss Michael and Martin, Hounslow.
- You practice your Catholic faith by attending Mass on Sundays and Holydays of Obligation.
To apply for a nursery place, you need to collect an application form from the school office or download the forms from the school’s website. You can find the websites for the local Catholic schools in this list.
Catholic schools give priority to children of practicing Catholic families. To demonstrate this, you need a Certificate of Catholic Practice issued by a priest. Please follow these instructions carefully:
- Book an appointment to meet the Priest. Bookings are made online at:
- Download the Certificate of Catholic Practice. Please fill in the certificate with your child’s details, and print one copy for each Catholic school to which you are applying.
- At least one parent/guardian together with the child should come to the presbytery (94 Bath Road) to meet the Priest at the pre-arranged time. You must bring with you:
- The filled and printed Certificates of Catholic Practice, one for each Catholic school.
- Your child’s Mass Attendance Certificates, or Mass Attendance Cards for the past two years.
- If you moved to our parish within the last two years you will also need a letter from your previous Parish Priest.
At this meeting the priest will sign and stamp the certificates and return them for you to send to the schools to which you are applying.
PLEASE KEEP TO THESE ARRANGEMENTS AND DO NOT CALL AT THE PRESBYTERY AT OTHER TIMES.
