Coronavirus - disruption to services

There may be unavoidable delays to progressing and hearing school admissions appeals this year. We are monitoring government guidance and considering the possible impact of the coronavirus on school admissions appeals.

6. Supplementary Information Forms

Voluntary aided (church) schools and academies usually have a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) which they require you to complete.

If you are applying for a faith school, it is important that you complete the form with all details which are relevant to your child and your family.

Please contact the school directly or visit their website to get a SIF and return it to the school when complete.

The information you submit on a SIF is used by admission authorities to rank your child's application against the criteria in their published admission policy.  

For primary schools, the SIF must be returned to the school by 15 January.

If you select three voluntary aided (church) schools or academies, please complete three separate SIFs, one for each school and return them to each school by the closing date.

If you do not complete a SIF for a school that needs one, your application will be considered after those applications which did include a completed SIF.
