Additional information required to support your application

Supplementary Information Form (SIF)

If you are applying to a faith school, under the faith criteria, please complete the Supplementary Information Form (SIF) and attach it to your online application or return it to the school. SIFs can be found on our admissions policies pages or by contacting the school directly.

You are strongly advised to read the admissions policies for your preference schools.

Not completing a SIF may mean that your application is unsuccessful.

Medical evidence

Not all schools give priority to a child's medical or psychological condition. You are strongly advised to read the admission criteria for the school you are applying for before making your application. If the school does give some priority to a child's medical or psychological condition then you must submit written evidence from a medical professional (GP or consultant) or psychologist giving details of the condition and why the school you are applying for is best suited to meet the child's medical or psychological needs. Evidence simply giving a diagnosis is unlikely to be sufficient.

You can attach this evidence to your online application or scan and email it to school.admissions@southampton.gov.uk or send it by post to Admissions Team, Civic Centre, Southampton, SO14 7LY. Please ensure that you give your child's name, date of birth, and school applied for with the evidence.

All evidence submitted for a community or voluntary controlled (VC) school i.e. schools for which Southampton City Council is the admission authority, is considered by a multi-disciplinary panel. Other schools that have a medical criterion may use other means to assess the evidence supplied.

Address evidence

If you have moved house, please send proof of the change of address to the admissions team, clearly marked with the child's name and date of birth. More information on the address evidence required is available.

Any evidence received after the following dates will not be considered:

  • 23:59 on 16 November 2018 for year 7 applications
  • 23:59 on 29 January 2019 for year R and year 3 applications

All submitted applications will be processed by the admissions team after the closing date of applications.
