Admissions warning as Catholic school puts faith before family

 Non-Catholic children may be rejected from their sibling’s school after governors agreed to give Catholic families top priority.

Sacred Heart Primary School, in St Mark’s Road, Teddington, told non-Catholic parents their younger children may not be accepted in the future because of an obligation to prioritise by faith when it is oversubscribed.

The rule is contained in a Diocesan Trust Deed, in which the school said there was no scope for change.

Most other schools give priority to siblings of existing students regardless of faith and spare parents the difficulty of having children at different schools.
