Procedures for Applying for Admissions to Early Years Foundation Stage (Reception Class) 2023/2024
Applicants are required to fill in two forms:
- Common Application Form (CAF) which is available from 1st November 2022 from Surrey County Council and must be returned to them by 15th January 2023. Information about Surrey Schools can be viewed here.
- St Joseph's Redhill SIF 2023-24 (SIF) which is available in PDF format below and must be returned to us at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School by 15th January 2023. Paper copies of the SIF are available from our school office.
Please Note - For applications under the Catholic Faith criteria:
Due to the local Covid-19 numbers, Fr Tony will not be meeting with parents this year to sign SIFs. Please send your completed SIF (leaving only the Priest's section unfilled) directly to the school before 15th January 2023, and Fr Tony will then view these applications and support as applicable. You will NOT need a face-to-face meeting with Fr Tony this year.
For applications outside of the Parish of the Nativity of the Lord, please check with your Parish Priest for details of their local arrangements.
For your information:
If your child is not offered a place at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Redhill, you have the right to appeal against that decision to an Independent Appeal Panel (set up in accordance with sections 88 and 94 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998).
Appeals must be made in writing and must set out the reasons on which the appeal is made.
Appeals should be made to the Clerk of Governors at the school address.
