Guide for Parents

Please refer to our Guide for Parents before applying for a school place - it contains key information on school admissions.

Supplementary Information Forms

If you are applying for schools outside of the City of York area or faith schools such as your local Church of England or Roman Catholic Primary or Secondary school, you may also need to provide additional information such as proof of baptism, or fill in a Supplementary Information Form (SIF).

You should check with the school directly if a SIF is required, but you must always apply to your home Local Authority.
