Supporting documents you need for proof of residency
The address you give in your application must be the one where your child normally lives, on 31 October 2021 and is expected to live in September 2022 and beyond.
In defining a child’s ‘normal’ place of residence, we will not accept a business address, a landlord’s tenant’s address or a childminder’s address as a basis for allocating school places, nor will future addresses be accepted. Second homes with a short-term lease, will not be accepted as a normal permanent place of residence.
Proof of residence will be requested from you to prove your home address.
It is your responsibility to provide evidence of the address used on your application. We have the right to withdraw an offer if you fail to provide the requested evidence set out below.
