In addition to submitting an Application Form to your Local Authority, you MUST also complete a SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION FORM (SIF) and post or email directly to the school by 31st OCTOBER 2020.  Please note you will not be able to hand deliver your application directly to the school due to the current restrictions. 

Fraudulent applications

The London Borough of Waltham Forest and Chingford Foundation School take very seriously any attempt to gain an advantage in the admissions process by giving false information. 

It is really important that the admissions system is fair for everybody. Nobody should be allowed to cheat by using a friend or relative’s address, a business address or by temporarily renting a property near to a popular school. Each year, a number of parents try to get a school place by providing false information, which could result in them taking a place that should have gone to another child.  

The Local Authority will investigate all instances where a parent is thought to have provided false or misleading information in order to gain admission to a school. Your address will be checked by reference to various records and, if necessary, by a council officer visiting the application address.

A false application may, in addition to possible prosecution, lead to the withdrawal of your child’s place in the school applied for, even if the child has already started school.

Year 6 Open Evening

The Year 6 Open Evening will be on Wednesday 14th October 2020 and will be a virtual event.  Further details to follow soon.
