How to apply for a place in Reception


Complete the London Borough of Barnet’s ‘Common Admission Form’ (CAF). This can be found at https://www.barnet.gov.uk/citizen-home/schools-and-education/school-admissions/in-year-school-admissions.html.


Fill in the application form called 'Supplementary Information Form for Foundation Place Applications with Clergy Reference Form'. If you are applying for a Foundation place. Give as much detail as possible to allow accurate applying of admission criteria. Return the completed forms to the school office. Applications under the Open criteria do not need to complete these forms. 


The Governing Body has designated 35 places to be offered to pupils whose parent/carer is a faithful and regular worshipper in an Anglican or other Christian Church (see below). ‘Faithful and regular worshipper’ shall mean that the parent(s) or those with parental responsibility have attended at least twice a month at a service of worship at the relevant church for at least 18 months immediately prior to an  application. Written evidence of an applicant’s commitment to their place of worship will be required on the school's Clergy Reference Form which must be returned to the school; this evidence must be endorsed by the minister or priest. If there are more than 35 applicants who qualify for a Foundation Place, places will be allocated according to our admissions policy. If there are fewer than 35 qualified applicants for Foundation Places, any unfilled places will become additional Open Places. Unsuccessful applicants for Foundation Places will be considered for Open Places in accordance to our admissions policy.
