To apply for a place at Cardinal Newman School for Reception in September 2017 you should complete and return the following two forms:

1  The Common Application Form (CAF)

All applications for places must be made on the Common Application Form which is available from Surrey County Council’s website and returned either in paper form or online directly to Surrey County Council .  If you do not live in Surrey you can access the form on your local authority’s website and return it to your own local authority.  The booklet “Information on Primary Schools in Surrey 2017/18” is now only availailable online at:

2  The school’s Supplementary Information Form (SIF)

This is available from the school website or the school office and is to be returned to the school office by 15 January 2017.   This allows the governors to put all applicants in order of priority for admission in line with the published admission policy. 

With this form you will need to supply the following :

  • An original baptism certificate (if applicable) - this will be photocopied and returned to you;
  • Evidence of your current address – e.g. utility bill or bank statement, etc dated within the last 3 months or your most recent council tax statement.

Please note that while completion of the SIF is not mandatory, if a completed SIF is not received, the governors can only consider your application within the last criterion of the school’s Admission Policy (see above).

You are advised to make a copy of the two forms for your records.

Note for applicants from St Erconwald's parish - please find instructions for getting the SIF signed by the priest here.
