Open Days / Tours of the School

During the Autumn Term we usually hold open days for prospective families to visit our school.  Unfortunately this has not been possible during the pandemic.

Information regarding future open days / tours will be posted on this page once it is known if / when we are able to go ahead with them.

 

In the meantime we have created a virtual tour of our school for you to watch.

 

 

Applying for a School place

Applying to St Teresa’s Catholic Primary School?

Please read the following very carefully.

 Your application must include the following (where applicable);

 

1. A copy of the child’s Birth Certificate.

 

2. A copy of the child’s Baptismal Certificate (if the child has been Baptised).

  

3. A Certificate of Catholic Practice (available from your Priest if you are a practising Catholic)

Although we usually require the original certificate of Catholic practice, we are making an exception during the pandemic to allow parents to email their documentation directly to the school.

If you require a certificate of catholic practice from St Teresa's Church for your child to start school in September 2021, please send a request by email to lexden@dioceseofbrentwood.org

 

4. The Supplementary Information Form – available via this link    

For clarity, these four pieces of information must be supplied directly to the school.

It is YOUR responsibility to ensure your application is complete and correct as above.

You are reminded that an incomplete application may alter its classification within the school’s published admission criteria.

 

Please note that the above four pieces of information are in addition to your main application which must be made directly to Essex County Council. 

 

For further information please visit www.essex.gov.uk and follow the links to School Admissions.
