Supplementary information forms (SIFs)
Some schools ask you to complete a SIF. Kings Avenue Primary does not require a SIF.
For schools in other boroughs, please check their literature.
It is very important that the SIFs are completed and sent to the schools by their set deadline otherwise your child may miss out on a preferred place.
Moving house or change of details
The Lambeth School Admissions Team will consider your application using the details you provide on your form.
If you move address you must tell the School Admissions Team of your new address so we are able to contact you if we need more information or to tell you the result of your application. Also you will need to provide new proof of address documentation for you and your child.
This also applies if you have a change of medical circumstances or a sibling starts at a preferred school. Please note that changes to preferences after the deadline for on time applications are not permitted.
