*Section 576 of the Education Act 1996 defines 'parent' as:


•All natural parents, whether they are married or not

•Any person who, although not a natural parent, has parental responsibility for a child or young person

•Any person who, although not a natural parent, has care of a child or young person (having care of a child or young person means that the child lives with and is looked after by that person, irrespective of what their relationship is).

 Important note to Parent/Carer:

If you are expressing a preference for a place for your child at this school and wish to apply in connection with one of the faith criteria, you should complete this Supplementary Information Form (SIF).

If you do not complete the SIF and return it to the school with all supporting documents by the closing date, your child may not be placed in the appropriate faith criterion. This is likely to affect your child’s chance of being offered a place.

For a Reception Year Admission in the normal admissions round for the Year 2018 – 19, the completed SIF, together with all supporting documents, should be returned to the school by 15 January 2018.

For an In-Year Admission in the Year 2018 – 19, the completed SIF, together with all supporting documents, should be returned to the school as soon as possible.

If you are applying to more than one Catholic school, you will need to fill out a separate SIF for each school.

You must also complete the local authority Common Application Form (CAF). The SIF is not valid without the CAF.
