Our Lady’s Admissions Policy

Our Lady Star of the Sea is a Catholic Primary School under the trusteeship of the Diocese of Lancaster. It is maintained by Lancashire Local Authority as a voluntary aided primary school. The Governing Body is the admissions authority and is responsible for taking decisions on applicants for admission.

The Governors welcome applications from Catholic and non-Catholic parents who would like their children educated within the aims and ethos of Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic School. Our Lady Star of the Sea is a Catholic Primary School in which the Catholic faith and the teachings of the Catholic Church are important aspects of school life and influence the school curriculum.

We ask all parents applying for a place here to respect this ethos and its importance to the school community.

This does not affect the right of parents who are not of the faith of this school to apply for and be considered for a place here.


If you are applying a place for your child in Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School on faith grounds please complete this form in addition to the Common Application Form available online or issued by the Local Authority, after first reading the school’s admission policy.

This supplementary information form will assist the Governors of the school in deciding whether your child qualifies for a place. Failure to complete the form may affect where your child is placed within the oversubscription criteria.

Part A must be completed by the parent/guardian.
Part B must be completed/signed by a Parish Priest.
