If you are thinking of applying for a place at Cardinal Newman Secondary School for your child in September, please click HERE for an information sheet. This will help you with the application process.
There is now an on-line Supplementary Information Form which will be live on Cardinal Newman's website from next week with full instructions of how to complete, as Cardinal Newman will not be accepting paper copies of this or religious evidence. Baptism certificates will also be uploaded on this form. If any parents need help with this please call Mrs F Coates directly at the school and she will be able to help you with your application.

Please note that we are a cashless school. Lunch money, clubs, uniform and trips should be paid by Parent Pay. If you have any questions, please call in at the school office. We will be happy to help. If you are having difficulties with payment, please let us know and we will do our best to help.
Advice for parents and carers.
These are extremely challenging and worrying times for families meaning, more than usual, parents and carers may be unsure of what to do when their child is unwell or injured.
Click HERE for a poster which gives guidance on children’s health to enable parents to assess when they should be seeking help. It consists of a red, amber and green traffic light system advising parents of which symptoms require them to seek urgent medical advice and the options available to them.
The school nurse service in Brighton and Hove, although not actually visiting schools, are still available to offer advice and support. Click HERE for more information.
Calling parents/carers of preschool children!
We welcome our school, parish and local community to our weekly parent and toddler group. There is no cost attached, it is simply a chance to meet other parents of preschool children and an opportunity for your child to play and explore. Our Learning Mentor, will be on hand every week to chat and offer support, or just to make you a cup of tea. Please ask at the school office for further details.
If you have friends or family with young children, please encourage them to come along and bring a friend. There is no expectation that you have a child currently at St Joseph’s; for us this is a service and a way of reaching out to our local and parish community.
If you would like to join us then please call or visit the school office to ask for details.
Please do join us, it’s completely free and will run as a drop in, so no regular commitment is needed.
