Parents/carers who wish to have their child considered for admission to our school must complete a Common Application Form (CAF) from your Local Authority and the school’s Supplementary Information Form (SIF) if they are applying for a church place.  If applying for a community place this additional supplementary form does not need to be completed.  Out of borough applications must be submitted to their home Local Authority.

Supplementary form can be downloaded below or obtained from the school office; the CAF must be completed online via eAdmissions.  The Supplementary Information Form (only for church applicants) must be returned to the school. 

If your child is due to start primary school in September 2024, the deadline for applications is 15 January 2024.

Supplementary Information Form 

Admissions Appeals

Appeals are in accordance with the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 and parents who are not offered a place for their child have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel. Parents wishing to appeal should obtain an appeal form from the school. The form should be sent to reach the Clerk to the Appeal panel, c/o the School, within 20 school days of the date of the letter confirming the governors’ decision not to offer a place. Should an appeal be unsuccessful, the Governing Body will not consider a further application from those parents within the same academic year unless there have been significant and material changes in their circumstances.

Our Federation operates a waiting list, which is ordered in accordance with the oversubscription criteria. The waiting list is held until the end of each academic year in which the child starts. Parents may request in writing to join the waiting list. If an application is received and a child is added to the waiting list, the list will be re-ranked in accordance with the oversubscription criteria. Parents will need to re-apply each academic year if they wish their child’s name to remain on the school’s waiting list with a new updated supplementary information form (SIF).
