St Brigid’s is a Roman Catholic Primary School under the trusteeship of the Diocese of Salford. It is maintained by Manchester Authority. As a Voluntary Aided School, the Governing Body is the Admissions Authority and is responsible for taking decisions on applications for admissions. The co-ordination of admissions arrangements is undertaken by the Local Authority. For the school’s year commencing September 2021, the Governing Body has set its admissions number at 30.
The Catholic Faith and the Teachings of the Roman Catholic Church have an essential role in school life and influence every aspect of the 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.
ADMISSIONS TO THE SCHOOL will be made by the Governing Body. All preferences listed on the Local Authority Preference Form will be considered on an equal basis with the following set of ADMISSIONS CRITERIA forming a priority order where there are more applications for admissions than the school has places available.
1) Looked After Children and previously Looked After Children
2) Baptised Roman Catholic children who have a sibling in the school at the time of admission
3) Baptised Roman Catholic children resident in the parish of The Holy Spirit - Manchester
4) Baptised Roman Catholic children resident in other parishes
5) Other children who have a sibling in the school at the time of admission
6) Other children
