If you are applying for a place in next year’s Reception Classes you should complete Southend Borough Council’s Single Application Form (SAF) which must be submitted to them by 15th January 2019. The best way to apply is online at www.southend.gov.uk/admissions but if you require a paper application these can be obtained from the Civic Centre, Victoria Avenue, Southend.
You must also complete our Supplementary Information Form (SIF) and if you are a practising Catholic, please ask your Priest for a completed Certificate of Practice, and these, along with a copy of your child’s Baptismal certificate (if applicable) should be submitted to our school office by 22nd January 2019. (See admissions section of our Prospectus for full details).
If you are awaiting a Priest's appointment you can send your SIF and Baptism Certificate to us now and follow it up with the Certificate of Practice, as long as it is here by January 22nd January 2019.
The offer date for September 2019 Reception intake is 16th April 2019. Please note, it is THE COUNCIL who will contact you, not individual schools.
If you are applying for a place in any other school year you DO NOT need to complete the Council’s form unless you are applying for a Year 3 place in the determined admissions round.
