  • Child's permanent home address: This is the address where the child normally lives. If this is different from the applicant's address, please give the reason for this. If the applicant has moved house within the last six months, you will also need provide evidence to confirm that your home address is permanent, rather than temporary. Parents/carers must provide documentary evidence as proof of permanent home address.

    Shared care arrangements: It is normally accepted that the child lives with the parent/carer who makes the application and is able to provide documentary evidence of the child’s main domiciliary address, that is, who the child lives with on school days. If this applies, you should indicate the reason and provide the appropriate documentation.

    Proof of birth date: Parents/carers must provide documentary evidence showing proof of birth date.

    Our parental responsibility protocol and proof of address protocol provide more information and can be found on the School Policies page of our website.
