Applying on Faith Grounds


Parents who wish to make an application on faith grounds must complete a Supplementary Information Form which must also be signed by a designated church official. The form should be returned to us to accompany the application for your child's place at our school. There is no facility to complete the Supplementary Information form online. In the case of applications to start school in Reception Year, the form must be with the school before the deadline for primary school admissions set by Hampshire Local Authority.

The link to the form is here /files/FORMSupplementaryinformationformSIFformforfaithapplicants.pdf

The purpose of this Supplementary Information Form is to verify the active membership of the Church of England of one or both parents. Active membership is defined as attending worship at a Church of England church at least twice a month for the previous two years. The fact that a child has been baptised at the church in question would not normally be sufficient to verify active membership.
