Reserve List

If you are unable to obtain a place for your child we are able to place them on a waiting list. Please contact the school office for your child to be added, if a place then becomes available we will contact all on the waiting list for that particular year group and apply our admissions criteria.

Your child's name will only stay on the waiting list until the end of the current academic year, if you would like your childs name to continue to be on the list please call the school office in September. 

In-Year Applications

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 Lincolnshire County Council by completing the LA Common Application Form


and following the instructions on the LA website. If applying for a place on faith grounds you will also need to complete a Supplementary Information Form, see link above, and return this to the School Administrator at St Norbert’s Catholic Voluntary Academy.

Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out in the admission arrangements for 2022-2023 will be applied, please see link to Admissions Policy 2022-2023 above. 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 if requested. 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.

If you have any questions in relation to in-year admissions please contact the School Office on 01775 722889. 

You may also wish to discuss in-year applications with the local authority on 01522 553212.
