The Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi-Academy Trust is the admission authority for all the schools within the Trust and is responsible for determining the admissions policy. On behalf of the Trust, the admissions are coordinated by the relevant Local Authority. All decisions relating to admission applications will be taken by the school’s Local Governing Body.
Applying for a place in Nursery
Our Nursery facility offers high-quality provision throughout, with outside space for physical activity, a sand pit, a mud kitchen and more. Inside, we offer a stimulating indoor space which is re-imagined throughout the year.
A place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the school’s Reception class. Parents should apply through North Lincolnshire Admissions for a place in Reception, subject to the Admissions Policy of Our Lady of Lourdes Multi-Academy Trust.
Applying for a place in School
Applications must be made on the Common Application Form provided by the Local Authority, North Lincolnshire County Council.
If you have a query regarding parish boundaries, please contact the school office staff who will be happy to help.

Parents whose children have not been offered a place at a school in the normal admissions round will be added to the school’s waiting list unless they have been offered a place at a higher preference school. The list will remain open until the end of the academic application year. If a parent wishes their child to remain on the waiting list, they must re-apply each academic year. The local authority manages the waiting list for St Norbert’s.
An application can be made for a place for a child at any time outside the admission round and the child will be admitted where there are available places. An application should be made to North Lincolnshire Admissions by completing the Common Application Form and following the instructions on the LA website
If you are applying for a place on faith grounds, you will also need to complete a supplementary form:

Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out in the admission arrangements for 2023/24 will be applied. Parents are advised to read the admission arrangements carefully before making their application.
If there are no places available, the child will be added to the waiting list. Please see the admission arrangements for more details.
You will be advised of the outcome of your application in writing as soon as possible. Applicants must be informed of the outcome of their application within 15 school days of receipt, but the aim is to notify applicants of the outcome of their application within 10 school days of receipt.
You have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel if your application is unsuccessful.
