Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. We therefore recommend that you make a visit where we can show you the facilities on offer at St Bernadette for your child and the care we have for your child. Prospective parents can make an appointment to visit by contacting the school office. Each year we hold a general meeting for all parents and carers whose child is entering the school in the Nursery and Reception classes.
To apply for a school place at St Bernadette you need to complete and return the Bristol application form to the Local Authority. Details of closing dates are published in advance and parents need to return their applications by the given dates to ensure that consideration for a place is given on time. Full details of our admissions can be found within our admission policy below.
If you want to admit your child during a school year, please contact the school direct and we can inform you of the procedure.
Admissions for Reception
If you are applying for your child to start school in the following September, you will need to apply with Bristol City Council. Here is the link: https://www.bristol.gov.uk/schools-learning-early-years/primary-admissions

In Year Admissions
If your child is already in another school and you would like them to transfer to St Bernadette, please call 0117 3772273 and speak to Miss Campbell. She will let you know if we have any space in the class that you need. If we do not have a space you can complete our In Year application form and be put on our waiting list.
