Moving from infant to junior classes 2014
If your child is a year 2 pupil and attending an infant school you must apply for your child's year 3 junior school place (even if you want a place at your linked junior school).
If you want your child to attend their link Barking & Dagenham junior school, you do not need to fill in an application form, as we will do this on your behalf (even if you live outside the borough). If you would prefer your child to go to different junior school, then you must fill in the ‘JCAF
’ (Junior common application form).
If your child is at any other establishment and you would like to apply for a year 3 school place at a junior school you will also have to fill in a JCAF.Supplementary information forms – SIF (Extra forms)
Some schools are their own admission authorities which mean they decide who will be given a place at their school. Some of these own admission authority schools will need you to fill in extra forms called supplementary information form
(SIF). This is to help them process your application under the right admission criterion. William Ford Church of England Junior School is only Junior school within Barking and Dagenham that need this form. You and your minister to fill in a SIF if you want to apply under their faith criteria (priority 2 or 5)
. Don’t forget to give your minister a stamped envelope with the school’s address on it, so that they can return it to William Ford by the closing date.
The full process is set out in the Moving to Junior School
booklet. The closing date for all applications is 15 January 2014. Applications received after this date will not be processed until 7 July 2014 and will be dealt with under the ‘In-Year admissions’ process listed on our website in the booklet 'Finding a school place - Issue 2'
