Application Procedure

To apply for a place at this school, you must complete and return two separate forms.

  1. The  Common Application Form (for applications to Reception Class) is available online and should be completed electronically. To access the form, please visit www.southwark.gov.uk/schooladmissions.
  2. The Supplementary Information and Priest’s Declaration Form available from the school, must be completed and returned to Saint Joseph’s Catholic Primary, Little Dorrit Court, London SE1 1NJ


Note:  The closing date for return of these two forms (for Reception Class) is 15th January 2017.

You will be advised of the outcome of your application by a common offer date specified by the local authority. This will initially be by letter from the local authority on behalf of the school.  If you are unsuccessful (unless your child gained a place at a school you ranked higher on your Common Application Form), you may ask the school for the reasons, related to the oversubscription criteria listed above, and you have the right of appeal to an independent appeal panel.

Both the Supplementary Information Form  and the Common Application Form MUST be completed if you wish your son/daughter to be considered for a place.   You are advised to make two copies of the forms.   You should retain one copy and pass the second copy to the school or your priest, as indicated.
