Admissions and Appeal Arrangements

Sacred Heart Primary Catholic Voluntary Academy is a Catholic academy where the Academy Trust is the admissions authority. If you would like to make an application for a place at our school based on the faith criteria you can collect a school supplementary form from the school office or download it from our website and return it to the school office together with your child’s birth certificate and certificate of baptism (if applicable).

Nottinghamshire County Council have sent information out regarding school first admission arrangements, please contact them if you have not received this.  You can apply for school placements online at If you have any queries regarding the application process please contact the NCC Admissions Team on 01623 433499.

Please note the deadline for applying for a school place is the 15 January 2019. 


  • Under the co-ordinated scheme for admissions it is important to be aware that should the school of preference for your child be our school then it would be wise to put us as your first choice on the application.
  • Under the co-ordinated admission scheme this will not prejudice getting a place at any other school, in the event that our school is oversubscribed.
  • However, should you put another school as a higher priority than ours and you are allocated a place at that school, then that will be the school your child will automatically be offered a place at, irrespective of whether your application to our school was successful or not.

Action Required

Please ensure that you follow BOTH steps below, this will avoid any delay in your application for a place at this school.
