Some schools have specific criteria within the oversubscription categories of their admission policy that you may want your children to be considered under.
The common application form (CAF) stating your school preferences that you submit to the Local authority does not always gather all the information that individual schools need to apply their oversubscription criteria (because this criteria can be different for different schools). Therefore, some schools request that applicants complete a supplementary information form (SIF) which has been devised by the admission authority of the particular school to obtain specific information about the applicant and child that the school need to apply their admission policy.
Knowsley Catholic and Church of England schools typically have a supplementary form that applicants will need to complete if they wish your application for a school place to be considered under certain faith criteria of the admission policy. These forms are available directly from the individual schools or can be downloaded and printed from the links below.
Completed supplementary forms must be returned directly to the individual school/s by the relevant application closing date (31 October for secondary school transfer and 15 January for reception class applications).
Any supplementary form completed must be in addition to the relevant home local authority common application form and you must complete a separate supplementary form for each school of preference.
Please note – if you name the school as preference on the Local Authority common application form but do not complete a supplementary faith form, your application will still be considered, but the admission authority can only consider your child under criteria not related to supplementary information (for example not under a faith category). However, if you only complete the school supplementary form and do not name the school as preference on your Local Authority common application form, the admission authority will not typically consider your child for a place.
