Harvest Donations

The Epsom and Ewell Foodbank and all of us at St Anne’s School want to say a huge thank you for the Harvest donations that you sent in. The foodbank came to collect the contributions last Tuesday and the Prayer Prefects carried out the goods, helped to load them into boxes and then into the van. The workers at the foodbank said that it has been a long time since they have had such a generous amount of donations from one school, which made us feel really proud.  

Poppy Appeal

The senior Prayer Prefects have done a wonderful job organising this year's Poppy Appeal, taking orders, collecting money and delivering items to the children. Thank you all so much for your generous donations and we are happy to let you know that we have raised over £400 so far, with donations still coming in.

Tomas in Year 6 told us about the week's success:

On Monday, the Prayer Prefects, along with some helpers,  went around the school to take the children's orders; reflectors, poppies, wrist bands etc. We had to keep everyone safe, so we stayedy outside each classroom while we spoke to the children! Then on Tuesday, we came round to collect the money in envelopes. On Wednesday, the items were successfully delivered to all the children, via the teachers. Luckily, we had some extra items, so we could go around again to ask if anyone would like something else. Following this, we had to count all the money and then take it to the office where it will be handed over to the charity, The Royal British Legion. We really enjoyed being part of the collection!

  • The Year of St Joseph - Growing Together in Faith

    Pope Francis decrees Year of St Joseph 

    Pope Francis declared that this is a special Year of St Joseph to mark the 150th anniversary of Bl Pius IX’s proclamation of St Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church.

    The Year of St Joseph will run from Tuesday, 8 December 2020, to Wednesday, 8 December 2021.

    In an Apostolic Letter, Patris corde – With a father’s heart – Pope Francis describes the guardian of Our Lord as beloved, tender and loving, obedient, accepting father; one, who is both courageous and industrious, content to live and work “in the shadows” while he protected and provided for our Lord and Our Lady.

    “His patient silence was the prelude to concrete expressions of trust,” Pope Francis wrote in the Letter. “Our world today needs fathers,” he said. “It has no use for tyrants who would domineer others as a means of compensating for their own needs,” and “rejects those who confuse authority with authoritarianism, service with servility, discussion with oppression, charity with a welfare mentality, power with destruction.”

    Vatican News explains that Pope Francis wrote the letter “against the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic” and seeks to articulate some of the manifold ways in which the global emergency has laid bare to us out interdependence and our common humanity.

    “Each of us,” Pope Francis wrote, “can discover in Joseph – the man who goes unnoticed, a daily, discreet and hidden presence – an intercessor, a support and a guide in times of trouble. Saint Joseph reminds us that those who appear hidden or in the shadows can play an incomparable role in the history of salvation.”

    “A word of recognition and of gratitude,” Pope Francis wrote, “is due to them all.”

    The Letter concludes with a prayer to St Joseph, reproduced here below in its official English translation:

    Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
    Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
    To you God entrusted his only Son;
    in you Mary placed her trust;
    with you Christ became man.

    Blessed Joseph, to us too,
    show yourself a father
    and guide us in the path of life.
    Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage,
    and defend us from every evil.  Amen.

    In St Anne’s, the Children have been discovering St Joseph who Pope Francis’ describes as, ‘an unnoticed man, a daily, discreet and hidden presence – an intercessor, a support and a guide in times of trouble and produced through various mediums including art, poetry and written word, their interpretation of this special saint.

  • Admissions

    Admissions Policies and Supplementary Information Forms

    St Anne’s School is a Catholic, Voluntary Aided Primary school in the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton. We serve the parishes of St Ann’s in Banstead and St John the Evangelist in Tadworth. The Governors aim to offer a distinctively Catholic education for children of rising 5 years of age to 11 years of age. They expect parents to uphold the Catholic character and ethos of the school. These expectations are reflected in our admissions policy, which gives full details of the criteria we apply when admitting children into the school.

    Procedures for admission for 2022-23

    We enjoyed meeting so many of you at our open mornings on Saturday 6th November and Wednesday 10th November 2021. If you have any further questions. please contact us via the school office or admissions@stannes-school.uk. 

    How to apply for a place in Reception 2022/2023

    Parents who wish to apply for a place for their child need to complete two separate application forms. One is obtained from the LA (Local Authority, Surrey for most parents) in which the parents live. This form is normally completed online; the Surrey form will be available from Monday 1st November 2021. The other is obtained from the school and enables us to collect the information we need in order to apply our admissions policy and supplementary information form (SIF) fairly. Both forms must be completed and returned before the published closing date for applications (Saturday 15th January 2022). The SIF must be returned to the school office. 

    Appeals process for entry in 2022-23

    The national offer date is 16th April 2022. Further details will follow about when appeals need to be lodged. Appeals lodged after the set date will be heard within 40 school days of the appeal deadline or 30 days of being lodged whichever is the later date. 

    In year admissions from 1 November 2021 until 31 August 2022

    What are In Year Admissions?

    You can make an in-year application if your child needs to join a school outside of the normal admissions round - for example, if you move house and your child can no longer attend their current school.

    How parents can apply for a school place

    If you want to apply for an In-Year admission to St Anne’s Catholic Primary School, you need to complete:

    1. A Centrally Managed Application for In Year admission to a school (CMA) – Application Form
    • The CMA Application Form can be found here
    • You MUST scan or photograph your completed CMA Application Form and supporting evidence and email it to: schooladmissions@surreycc.gov.uk. If you are unable to email it, please post to Surrey Admissions Team, Quadrant Court, 35 Guildford Road, Woking GU22 7QQ.

    • The SIF is available here
    • You MUST return the Supplementary Information Form to Mrs Slade (Office Manager), St Anne’s Catholic Primary School, Court Road, Banstead, SM7 2PH (admissions@stannes-school.uk)

    Who processes your application?

    The governing body is the admissions authority for St Anne’s Catholic Primary School and has responsibility for admissions to the school, including setting the priority of admissions when the school is oversubscribed. Although Surrey County Council coordinates In year applications for St Anne’s Catholic Primary School, it is the governing body who will consider if the school has any vacancies and if so, whether they are able to offer a place. The school will contact you to let you know the outcome of your application.

    When will parents be notified of the outcome of their application?

    Upon receipt of an In Year application, Surrey County Council will aim to notify parents of the outcome of the application in writing within 10 school days. However, it might take up to 15 school days. You must respond to any offer of a place within two weeks.

    The right to appeal

    If you are refused a place at any school you applied for, you have the right to make an appeal to an independent appeal panel. Where an application is refused, the school will set out the reason for refusal.

    For applications for In Year Admissions, appeals must be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being lodged. If parents wish to appeal, they must set out the grounds for appeal in writing.

    Other Information

    Where an applicant is offered a school place following an in-year application, and the offer is accepted, arrangements should be made for the child to start school as soon as possible, particularly where the child is out of school.

    If your child is not offered a place, you can add their name to a waiting list. Waiting lists are ranked according to each school’s admission criteria. Your child’s position on a waiting list may go down as well as up, for example, if other children with greater priority according to the school’s admission criteria are added to the list.
