St Thomas’ C E Primary School Oldham - Notification of Proposed Variation to Admission Arrangements for Admission to Reception in September 2021


As a result of measures taken nationally to combat COVID-19, places of worship have been closed since 17thMarch 2020.


As a school with a religious character, this school’s admission arrangements include faith-based oversubscription criteria involving attendance at public worship.  These faith-based oversubscription criteria cannot now be satisfied without amendment, and St Thomas’ C E  Primary School, as the admission authority for the school, is proposing a variation to the admission arrangements because of this major change in circumstances.


Further information can be found in the policies section on the school’s website:
